Last week, there were reports of Lenovo's plans to release the first quad-rear camera ever. The handset has an 8-megapixel Ultra-Wide Angle lens with a 120-degree field of view. The second sensor is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, f/2.4 aperture and 10-megapixel resolution.
How many cameras are enough on a smartphone? Next is where the main camera sits with a 24MP f/1.7 lens and lastly is a 5MP f/2.2 lens built for sensing depth. And for good measure, the front camera boasts a 24-megapixel sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
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 flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB) is available at a discounted price of Rs 42,990 instead of Rs 62,500 during the festive season sale. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? The company revealed that the Galaxy A9 utilises an octa-core chip offering speeds between 1.8GHz and 2.2GHz depending on the task. It comes with 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, expandable with microSD cards with up to 512GB of space. What separates it from other devices in its class is the camera arrangement.
The Galaxy A9 is the first product to spring from this plan, which could help fend off mid-range rivals like Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, while boosting mobile revenues dragged down by sluggish Galaxy Note 9 sales.
The Galaxy A9 (2018) starts at 599 euros in Europe and 549 pounds in the U.K. One model features 6GB of RAM, while another features 8GB of RAM. For comparison's sake, the OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch fullHD+ OLED panel, and a 3,300mAh battery, so it's battery lacks in capacity (by 500mAh) compared to the Galaxy A9's unit.
We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full. It will run Google's Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the company's Experience UI skin on top.
Samsung Galaxy A9 colors are great to look at. It's unclear if it will come to the U.S. at this point. The 5 MP camera comes with depth sensor that lets you take photos with bokeh effect, while also letting you manually adjust the amount of bokeh.
The third lens is a 120° wide-angle attached to an 8Mp sensor.
Don't worry, there is still a front-facing 24mp camera, bringing the total to five.
