Samsung goes camera crazy with the Galaxy A9 and A7

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A9 today which is world's first smartphone with quadruple camera setup on the back. The announcement of the Galaxy A9 has come soon after the launch of Galaxy A7 (2018) which is the company's smartphone with triple rear cameras.

For performance, the Galaxy A9 will rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB of the base model. This dual-SIM smartphone comes laden with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It also has a 10MP f/2.4 sensor with a 2x optical zoom feature, an ultra wide 120-degree 8MP f/2.4 lens and a 5MP sensor (f/2.2) for depth.

Samsung has not revealed anything about the A9 (2018) but had teased about it on social media with an image that shows "4X Fun" written on it along with "Let the fun times begin".

Above you'll see a Samsung-branded concept phone that didn't exactly materialize. The Ultra-Wide Angle feature of the Galaxy A9's camera makes it much easier to do that. Samsung is also including AI Scene Recognition for identifying the subject and adjusting settings instantly for a better photo.

What are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9? Depth perception should also not be a problem for the Galaxy A9 (2018), as it sports a dedicated depth camera. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side and the four cameras are stacked vertically on the top left.

What's interesting about the Galaxy A9 is that it has plenty of decent features. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB Type-C, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Now it's 2018, and phones have more cameras on them than buttons - at least that's the case with a new Samsung Galaxy phone.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) receives power from 3,8000mAh battery. The Galaxy A9, which is due on sale in November, will cost a comparatively affordable £549.

"As a global leader in the smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for innovation in a world driven by visual communication", DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, told reporters here.
