Samsung Galaxy Note 9 camera has been benchmarked by DXOMark. The device has got some positive reviews for its design and of course, the hardware is super awesome. DxOMark’s review focuses on the camera performance of the flagship model and it is pretty impressive. The Galaxy Note 9 achieves an impressive overall DxOMark score of 103 points, which at the time of testing placed it in joint second place overall with the HTC U12+. Huawei’s triple camera-sporting P20 Pro still retains its top spot as the best camera phone based on DxoMark’s review.Samsung Galaxy Note 9

As a reminder, the Note 9’s rear camera configuration includes a 12MP dual-aperture f/1.5-2.4 wide and 12MP f/2.4 telephoto cameras. Both sensors have Optical image stabilization (OIS) as well as Samsung’s new Intelligent Camera which enables the phone to detect scenes, optimize colors and contrast as well as detect flaws such as a smudgy lens or subject that has closed his eyes. The front camera is an 8MP f/1.7 selfie snapper.

The review confirms the device as a very strong performer for still photographs. The Note 9 autofocus performance is also adjudged to be excellent while the camera scores high for balancing detail retention and noise reduction, zoom quality, and realistic bokeh effects. The device also does well in bright light with very good exposure level and an excellent dynamic range which DXOmark says is one of the widest they’ve seen. This means the Galaxy Note 9 camera is very capable of capturing high-contrast scenes with deep shadows and very bright highlights. Images are also bright and vivid, with mostly accurate white balance and good color rendering. You can read more on the review from the source link below.
