Samsung's New Phone Has FOUR Rear Cameras, Says Leak

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

This is one of Qualcomm's most powerful mid-range processor, and it's made using a 10nm manufacturing process. I spent a very brief amount of time with the Galaxy A9 at the launch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and here are my initial thoughts.

Samsung's Galaxy A9 has finally entered the mid-range ring.

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

The Galaxy A9 is a glass/metal sandwich like most premium phones launching today.

Its screen is a 6.3-inch Full HD+ panel (for a 2,220 by 1,080 resolution). 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 phone comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and face recognition support. Samsung has also included a nice 3,800 mAh battery to power this puppy.

Internals are comprised of 4GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB and 512GB on board storage. Depending on your region, this will be accompanied by either 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

'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. Samsung's Android UI also looks considerably different compared to stock Android, so keep note of that too. The main camera is a 24MP sensor (f/1.7) which promises detailed shots in Auto mode. This is to "soak in the light and create brighter images".

The other thing you'll miss out on opting for the A9 over the S9 or S9+ is mobile HDR compatibility. As for the quality of the screen, it's just as good as any of Samsung's other Super AMOLED panels on first impression, and I expect contrast ratios and colour accuracy will be effectively ideal when I finally turn our colour calibrator loose on a review unit. Last but not least, we have a 5MP depth camera with f/2.2. Next, we have a 10MP (f/2.4) sensor which is a telephoto lens.

Third is the main 24-megapixel, f/1.7 aperture sensor. By our count that makes five. 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. To be fair, this once annoying overlay has become a much nicer environment in recent iterations, shedding its garish colours and insane amount of options for something more refined. The Galaxy A7 (2018) had three on its back, but Samsung is just getting started.
