Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) with 4 cameras announced: Specifications, features

Samsung goes camera crazy with the Galaxy A9 and A7

Launched late last month, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is the South Korean electronics giant's first triple camera smartphone. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 710 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. Both have a microSD slot that supports up cards with 512GB of storage to stuff with photos.

The cameras are also aligned on the left side of the phone, similar to that of the new Apple iPhone iPhone XS - but definitely much bigger.

The Galaxy A7 meanwhile features a 8MP 120 degree ultra wide lens, a 24MP lens, and a depth lens.

Moving on to the main attraction, the rear of this smartphone features four camera sensors round the back, as you can see in the pictures. Thanks to this construction the A9 measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs in at 183g but should feel comfortable in the hand with its 3D Glass curved back. The device features rounded display corners, while its power / lock and volume up / down buttons are placed on the right. The device got announced in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink color variants. If you're willing to pay extra, you can also have this bad boy shipped in a slew of other countries.

The story of the Galaxy A9 (2018) starts and arguably ends with the four cameras around back. On the front, it has 6.28-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution. Numbers are not everything, however, so let us dive a bit further into the cameras and how the magic happens.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) with 4 cameras announced: Specifications, features

Samsung recently confirmed that it will be focusing more on the mid-range smartphone line up and will bring some features that are yet to debut in the flagship Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series. Samsung's Android UI also looks considerably different compared to stock Android, so keep note of that too.

You do lose out on a feature or two, such as wireless charging and the main camera only featuring one aperture.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November.

It'll go on sale in the United Kingdom in November, starting at £549.

It's a sign of the times that it's nearly more surprising to see a single camera on the back of Google's flagship Pixel 3 than it is to see quad cameras on this Samsung device, with many other handsets on the market now including two or three lenses on the back.
