One of the new camera modes is called Dual Shot and uses both the front and rear cameras to take on photograph that includes the scene in front and behind the camera.
In the image above the front-facing camera was providing the main part of the picture (the Samsung demonstrator is on the left hand side and I'm next to him with the camera) while the inset heart is showing another member of the Samsung team stood in front of the device. Naturally, having the inset picture in a heart is a user-definable option.
Another new camera feature, called 'Sound and Shot', allows you to capture up to nine seconds of sound with each photo taken.
You can select whether you want the up to nine second audio clip to be captured from nine seconds before the photo is taken or the nine seconds after using on screen buttons (pictured).
There's also a new mode called 'Drama Shot' which creates a collage of images from a single picture by capturing motion. For example, if you were to take a picture of someone diving off a diving board, you would get several images starting with the diver stood at the top of the board all the way down to entering the water.
There's also an 'Eraser' mode that allows you to edit out moving or unwanted objects in the background of images.
Samsung's own branded Hub is still present on the handset, but instead of offering different Hubs for music, books, films and games, they are now all found in one place, making it much more convenient to access your content.
The music service 7Digital will continue to provide the musical element of Samsung Hub as it has done in previous generations of Samsung's Galaxy S devices. It also provides the store for BlackBerry Music.
