Galaxy S9 480 fps

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ comes with a super slow-mo feature that allows you to turn a 0.2 second moment into a dramatic 6-second clip at 960fps. To make capturing easier, it comes with an automatic detection feature which will trigger super slow-mo if an object appears in your selected area.
