We’re just several days away until Samsung finally unveils the Galaxy S9 at MWC 2018. So, the company is now dropping teasers to excite its fans. In fact, some of them are discreetly revealing what their new flagship smartphone has in store for us.
The company has released a trio of 15-second advertisements on their Korean YouTube channel and all of them focuses on the device’s camera prowess.
In the previous leaks about the Galaxy S9, we’re aware that it looks a bit identical to with its predecessor. This means that it’s not surprising that they are focusing their marketing prowess in the other aspects of the handset.
Going back, out of the three ads that were published, there was one that has really grabbed our attention. It shows a man making different facial expressions at different scenarios. After that, his face became animated. What could it be? Probably a feature similar to the iPhone X’s Animoji.
The other ad obviously announces the device’s slow-motion capabilities. Based on what we know so far, the Galaxy S9 might be able to shoot up to 1,000fps slow-motion videos. That’s even faster than the 960fps-capable sensor of Sony’s high-end smartphones like the Xperia XZs.
And lastly, we have the ad that displays the Galaxy S9’s low-light capabilities. According to the leaks, the device will have a variable f/1.5 aperture — something that we don’t usually see on smartphones.
Samsung hopes that these videos build up enough excitement towards the upcoming launch of the Galaxy S9. The company is set to unveil the device on their UNPACKED event at MWC 2018 this coming February 25, 2018.
