Samsung Galaxy S9 Camera Bokeh function available? Solved

If you want to take a photo with Bokeh effect with the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera, you won't find any suitable camera modes.

However, with the Samsung Galaxy S9 you can of course take Bokeh portraits. We'll tell you exactly how this works here:

The Bokeh effect is created via the aperture if there are no two cameras like the S9 Plus.

To do this, proceed as follows:

Samsung Galaxy S9

1. Open the camera app on the Samsung Galaxy S9

2. Switch to the camera mode "Pro" and then tap the aperture symbol at

3. Select the largest possible aperture value, because the larger the aperture, the blurrier the background and the more emphasis is placed on the objects or people in the foreground.

Because the Samsung Galaxy S9 has a mechanical aperture, this method is very suitable for achieving a bokeh effect.

The slightly larger Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, which is equipped with two cameras, even has its own portrait mode, which the "normal" S9 unfortunately doesn't have.

You now know how to shoot photos with Bokeh effect with the Samsung Galaxy S9 without having to install an extra app.
