Dual Aperture

The camera that takes beautiful photos in different lighting.

Take photos without thinking twice—no matter the time of day. The category–defining Dual Aperture adapts to bright light and super low light automatically, like the human eye. And you can flex your artistic side, toggling the aperture to create a mood.

*The Dual Aperture has two f-stop modes (F1.5 and F2.4). The Dual Aperture is installed on the rear camera of the Galaxy S9 and on the rear wide camera of the Galaxy S9+.
