What is Dual capture feature and how does it work on my Galaxy S9+?

Dual capture feature allows you to take a Live focus photo zoomed in on the subject and a photo with a wide-angle background, all in one shot. While you take Live Focus photos (with the telephoto camera), the main camera also takes pictures simultaneously. 

1 Telephoto camera: user can get object-oriented out-of-focus photos (portrait).
2 Main camera: user can get photos containing backgrounds as well (portrait + background).

Please note: This option is only available on the Galaxy S9+.

1 Open the camera.
2 Tap 'Live Focus' icon.

3 Make sure the dual capture feature is activated. Both a Live focus and normal picture will be saved.
4 Tap the button to take the image.
