Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ teaser is all about taking great selfies

Yesterday, we showed you three new video teasers from Samsung for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that focused (no pun intended) on some of the upcoming flagships' photographic features. We saw video shot in slo-mo, and recorded under less than optimal lighting conditions. Today, we find another new video teaser that is titled "The Camera Reimagined." This would indicate that Samsung has rebuilt the cameras on its 2018 flagship phones from scratch.

The new video shows a number of different effects, many of which are already available to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. The new models are scheduled to be unveiled exactly one week from this coming Sunday, during Samsung's 2018 Unpacked event taking place in Barcelona. The very next day marks the opening of the MWC 2018 trade show in the same city.

Renders of the Galaxy S9/S9+ have shown a new layout for the rear camera with the fingerprint scanner located under the rear camera sensor(s). Last year, Samsung located the biometric reader right next to the camera. This led some users to complain that they were smudging the camera lens while blindly searching for the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone.

Check out the new teaser by tapping the video at the top of this story.

It's great to have a rear shooter this powerful, it would be even better if the front camera could come close to matching it.

The rear camera is about capturing and preserving moments for the future. The front camera however just feeds vanity and narcissism. Plus, most of the front camera images are directly uploaded to social media, which compresses the image anyway. I'm still wondering why we got from the perfectly usable 2MP FFC camera to the monstrous front camera of today(20+ mp). That is stupid and increases cost of phones.
