Today, however, Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy A9 mid-ranger that packs as many as four cameras on the rear. The star innovation of the Galaxy A9 that was revealed yesterday in Malaysia is without a doubt its rear quad camera, an industry first. Or perhaps it just wanted to be the world's first four-camera smartphone.
The 8 MP camera comes with 120-degree Ultra-Wide angle lens. The main camera is a 24MP sensor (f/1.7) which promises detailed shots in Auto mode. Below that, there's a depth-sensing 5-megapixel lens created to gather all the depth information needed to add an artificial bokeh blur to the background in Samsung's adjustable Live Focus feature. On the front, you'll find a 24MP, f/2.0 selfie camera. The Galaxy A9 will come in Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink gradient color options, as well as a more classic Caviar Black. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also supports Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health apps as seen on other high-end Galaxy devices.
Samsung has only unwrapped the Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone, but it hasn't disclosed its pricing.
Samsung is upping its smartphone game with the much-anticipated Galaxy A9. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy?
For instance, the device has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen with a resolution of 2220×1080.
Apart from the four-camera setup, Galaxy A9 2018 offers mid-range level specifications.
The Galaxy A9 comes with a 24-megapixel main shooter, along with a 10-megapixel telephoto, 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 5-megapixel depth camera, with emphasis on creating excellent depth of field.
The A9 also boasts a sleek and ergonomic design that fits in one hand with a curved back made of 3D glass for a luxurious comfortable feel, the company said. Samsung has already launched the "flagship" Galaxy S9 and the plus-size Note 9 this year. A total of five cameras on this smartphone. Wow.
