Best Galaxy A9 (2018) features: It’s all about the camera


Samsung is holding an event today in Kuala Lumpur, where it is expected to launch its first smartphone to feature a quad camera setup on the back.

With four cameras on the rear glass case, Samsung is touting this device as the ideal offering for the Instagram generation.

The 8 MP camera comes with 120-degree Ultra-Wide angle lens.

This allows for a variety of different shooting modes, as well as customised shots using features like artificial bokeh effects. The 3D curved glass back on Samsung Galaxy A9 is borrowed from flagship smartphones. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November. Prices are yet to be announced and models and prices will vary in different worldwide market. In front, you've got a 24MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture lens. You will be able to fit in a bigger landscape or more number of people with just a tap in camera interface.

Further specs include a 6.3-inch, 2,220 x 1,080 AMOLED screen powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM and an expandable memory/storage of 128GB and to keep it all going is a hefty 3,720mAh battery. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9?

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation".

With all those cameras, Samsung was very clear that it's targeting the A9 at the Instagram-obsessed, so it's no surprise to see it's put some work into making sure the phone itself looks the part too.

Samsung's new flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 9, targets business productivity users with more than a terabyte of memory, DeX functionality, and a revamped S Pen.

In terms of the rest of the build, there's only a single speaker, but you do at least get a headphone jack (with support for Dolby Atmos) along with USB-C for charging. The device comes with Android Oreo out of the box and we hope Samsung has planned to roll out Pie for the device in the near future.
