Samsung Unveils the 4-Camera, Midrange Galaxy A9

13 Octobre 2018

Samsung's new Galaxy S9 upgrade ad tries to capitalize on Apple's iPhone "battery slowdown" controversy.

Samsung has made the Galaxy A9 official, the world's first smartphone to feature four rear cameras.

Regarding the Galaxy A9 (2018) price, the device will cost €599 (~$724) in mainland Europe with sale starting in November. Tech-savvy users voice doubt about whether the quad-lens camera will perform better than conventional cameras. Interestingly, The Google Pixel line, the newest Pixel 3, just announced a few days ago still retains a single camera on the rear, focus more of their efforts on software to achieve high-quality results. Samsung didn't mention what chip it is using but for United Kingdom models we suspect it'll be one of Sammy's own Exynos SoCs.

Design The Galaxy A9 looks very similar to the Galaxy A7 (2018) but it is slightly bigger.

You'd be forgiven for getting a bit confused. It's an all-glass device with a premium looking colour finishing at the back. The new phone also provides 128 gigabytes of storage and up to 512 gigabytes of expandable memory for storing high-quality images and visual content. We now have quad rear cameras to debate on. The USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and speaker grill are placed on the bottom, whereas the triple card slot is placed on the top. You can pick this device up at all authorised Samsung retailers and you also get to choose from between four different colourways: Blue, Gold and Black. The viewing angles are decent and the display is overall bright enough even at half the brightness. That does not make the phone a super affordable offering, however. The star innovation of the Galaxy A9 that was revealed yesterday in Malaysia is without a doubt its rear quad camera, an industry first. Coming to the cameras, the Galaxy A9 (2018) sports a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.

The second which is the telephoto camera features a 10MP lens with an f2.4 aperture with 2 times optical zoom. A 24-megapixel, f/1.7 unit, it's pretty much the same as every other smartphone camera on the market, and isn't all that groundbreaking.
