Variable aperture for Samsung Galaxy S9?
In relatd news, Samsung 's Galaxy S9 smartphone appears likely to feature a variable aperture camera.
The new smartphone, set to be unveiled next month, reportedly has a camera that can be moved from a very fast aperture of f/1.5 to a slightly slower f/2.4, depending on conditions.
A lower f-stop indicates that a camera is capable of gathering more light, leading to better performance in the dark and excellent background blur favored by many photographers.
The main camera on the South Korean tech giant's current flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone has an aperture of f/1.7 compared with the better f/1.6 adopted by LG Electronics' V30 smartphone.
