Samsung's brand new Galaxy A9 to take mid-premium smartphone market by storm
12 October, 2018, 04:41
Samsung's latest Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone comes with fourcameras at the back. Of course, the last camera being a 5 MP depth sensor sounds like a cop-out just to ensure the A9 has the honor of being the first quad-rear camera device in a world where more sensors seem to be the norm.
The Korean company's new phone will also feature mobile payment capabilities and expandable storage of up to 512GB. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience skin on top.
The 6GB Galaxy A9 will cost €599 ($691) in Europe and the phone will be available in threecolor options, including Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink.
You may be wondering why the need for multiple cameras on a smartphone. But the 120-degree Ultra Wide lens on the Galaxy A9 (2018) allows you to take the picture without twisting yourself into a pretzel.
Assisting the cameras is a new AI-powered Scene Optimizer that uses Scene Recognition to understand what you're photographing and adjust your settings for an optimal capture.
"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9". Interestingly, there is only one front facing 8MP camera.
There's a rear fingerprint scanner too, plus a headphone jack and USB-C port on the base of the A9.
The phone will sit beneath Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9 phones released earlier this year as the best of its mid-range devices. And the phone has a 3,800mAh battery. As of now, the pricing is unknown and considering that it has Snapdragon 660 SoC, i assume it could be priced a little above the Galaxy A7 when it launches in India next month. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also supports Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health apps as seen on other high-end Galaxy devices.
