Sure enough, the South Korean giant announced the Galaxy A9 (2018), with great emphasis on its four rear cameras, the first in a mainstream smartphone. With it enabled, a "Samsung Quad camera" watermark will be applied automatically to all photos captured using the device. Don't forget to also check out our coverage on the first phone to feature four rear cameras at the links below. The Galaxy A9 (2018) comes equipped with 24-megapixel (f/1.7 aperture), 10-megapixel (f/2.4 aperture, wide-angle lens), 8-megapixel (f/2.4 aperture, 120-degree wide-angle lens), and 5-megapixel (f/2.2 aperture, depth sensor) rear-facing cameras.
Finally there's a 10MP telephoto lens providing a 2x optical zoom over the primary camera, allowing you to get closer to the action. Smartphones are processing more and more cameras in the back of their devices. While the front side houses a single 24MP selfie camera, the backside is where all the magic takes place.
An all-glass body is standard fare for 2018, and the Galaxy A9 is available in three attractive colours which benefit from Samsung's advanced anodising process. The device will launch in the United Kingdom and other select markets in November. The Galaxy A9, which is due on sale in November, will cost a comparatively affordable £549. Theoretically, Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 will be capable of delivering photos that will cover more real estate, have clarity and sharpness and bokeh mode. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? Depth perception should also not be a problem for the Galaxy A9 (2018), as it sports a dedicated depth camera. The phone packs 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card.
The Galaxy A9 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is a pretty powerful mid-range processor.
Samsung has once again forgone the notch in favour of trim but not-quite-edgeless bezels, framing a 6.3in FHD+ 1,080×2,220 Super AMOLED screen.
What's interesting about the Galaxy A9 is that it has plenty of decent features.
The Galaxy A9 allows you to capture dynamic and lovely photos effortlessly. Another camera offers an ultra-wide lens for wide shots. It comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. A lot of them are camera-related and that was to be expected from this device. It will run Google's Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the company's Experience UI skin on top.
We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full. It's unclear if it will come to the U.S. at this point.
