Camera: New algorithms and better OIS?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is said to have the same camera hardware as the Galaxy S9+ (right).

The Camera. Reimagined. And improved?

Samsung introduced the dual aperture lens and computational photography on the Galaxy S9. If history is any indication, the Galaxy Note9 will most likely inherit the same features although there are reports that it will have better imaging performance. 

Following Bloomberg's report of an upgraded camera on the Galaxy Note9, mobile industry veteran Eldar Murtazin also shared that the upcoming handset will have the same camera hardware as the Galaxy S9 with new algorithms and better OIS. We hope the new software processing will tone down the excessive sharpening we noticed during our review of the Galaxy S9.

Our thoughts: The existing camera is already good and we expect the Note9 to keep the same hardware found on the S9, but with minor tweaks.
