At the back of the Galaxy S9, it comes with only one rear camera while the S9+ comes with a dual rear camera with OIS in both lenses. Both offers a 12 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera. You’ll also notice the new placement of the fingerprint scanner is in the center of the phone where it really belongs.
