Because of the great appeal of Apple, each generation of new iphone will usher in a “follow the trend” craze, what metal fuselage, what the fingerprint before, what parallel double cameras do not say, even as the 3D touch such a small number of functions, at that time there are still several mobile phone manufacturers “learn” the past.
But it is not just Apple, a mobile phone company, that can become an “industry vane”, and Samsung handsets are equally influential. At the end of February, Samsung officially unveiled the new flagship mobile Galaxy s9/s9+ to the world, and it has the potential to become an “industry vane”.
Samsung S9/s9+, the mobile phone industry can roll up what trends?
Camera arms race heats up, super slow moves are expected to come standard
Photo-taking function has always been the first selling point of mobile phone products, in this regard the manufacturers countless. As the boss of the Android camp, Samsung, one of the world’s best mobile phone makers, has spared no effort to push the development of mobile phone photography. Samsung S9+ is also claiming to redefine the photo, and at the same time scored 99 points on the Dxomark is also the affirmation of its imaging level.
Samsung S9/s9+ has two major enhancements to the camera, first by adding variable aperture design, specifically F1.5 and F2.4, and then adding 960FPS super slow action. Perhaps the hardware threshold for variable aperture is high, but there are already signs that a mobile phone with a super slow action feature will be available in the future.
According to the material, Huawei P20 Pro and millet mix 2S are likely to add slow motion and even super slow action function, but the specification is not clear whether and Samsung, Sony the same.
In the past, handset makers had focused on still-life photographs and had little interest in video shooting. But the appearance of the super slow action photography has widened the use scene of the mobile phone camera, and for the users, the video creation becomes more arbitrary, and the record of the fine moment has more manifestation.
Another key is that Samsung previously claimed to be interested in the sale of its own camera sensors, it seems that the popularity of super slow-motion function is only a matter of time.
Better face recognition on the road
Most new smartphones now come with face recognition, though security is not as good as Apple’s face ID or Samsung’s iris recognition, but the unlock speed is still very strong. However, the common 2D face recognition technology has a relatively large problem, that is, in the weak light recognition speed greatly reduced, and even the failure to unlock the situation.
Samsung’s approach is to s9/s9+ the iris recognition camera and face recognition camera into the front panel of the phone, but the timing of the two sensors is inconsistent.
In strong light environment, the default enable face recognition, at this time, the use of ordinary face recognition speed characteristics, mobile phone can be unlocked in a moment, in the weak light, at this point to enable the normal work of iris recognition, so that the phone’s face recognition function in any case can be “rapid” and “easy to use.”
We can see that there are already some mobile phone manufacturers trying to integrate infrared sensors into the face recognition sensor, for the purpose of achieving and Samsung is similar. In the current Android camp 3D structured light face recognition technology can not be large-scale production, the addition of infrared sensors may be the most feasible approach.
IPhone x on the moving expression is dependent on the original deep camera record, but Samsung S9/s9+ also dare not to weakness, launched its own dynamic Meng beat function. At least in terms of social and creative aspects, Samsung’s dynamic Meng is not lost to the iphone x, and this type of AR expression is also promising to become the industry trend.
