This Samsung infographic tracks the evolution of the camera phone

With a variable aperture, super-slow-motion and (in the case of the Plus model) a dual-camera setup, Samsung's newly announced flagship smartphones Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus put a lot of emphasis on camera features and performance.

But, of course, this is far from Samsung's first foray into camera phone tech.

Samsung has long been at the forefront of mobile imaging, and to visualize this fact, the company has released am infographic that puts its camera phone innovations onto a timeline of the past 18 years.

The graphic starts with Samsung's first camera phonethe SCH-V200which was launched in 2000 and allowed you to shoot and store up to 20 0. 11MP images (you still needed a computer to view them, though). From there, it move on to a number of flip-style feature phones and smartphone classics, such as the first Galaxy S or the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

As you would expect, the infographic ends with the new Galaxy S9 models, but it includes technical data and interesting tidbits about all the featured phoneswell worth a closer look for anyone interested in tech history. Check it out for yourself below:
