Samsung Galaxy A9 quick review: Four cameras for the masses

12 October, 2018, 10:29 | Author: Patty Hardy
  • Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

The Galaxy A9 features a gorilla glass design and has a large, 6.3in Full HD Super AMOLED screen.

The Galaxy A9 will launch in November priced at £549 in the United Kingdom, which is about $726 in USA currency. And with the 5MP Depth Camera, you can make the background of a portrait look sharp, or fuzzy. The camera is what people will really buy it for.

The A9's unique selling point is undoubtedly its camera hardware.

The report, courtesy of Korean outlet ETnews, claims Samsung will drop the 3.5mm headphone port from all devices launched after autumn 2019. AI Scene Recognition is baked in to identify the subject and adjust settings accordingly for the best photo. But that's only because we don't expect to see the Samsung A9 (2018) released in the U.S.

'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, ' said Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh to mark the launch.

Kanye: 'Trump hat made me feel like Superman'
The club shared an image of the typically straight faced Kanye West , with the caption: 'The worldwide break has got us like'. And not only did he greet Trump with a big, affectionate cuddle, he also dubbed himself a "crazy motherfucker".

The Galaxy A9 will be available here soon.

Ever find it hard to get the entire subject in the frame without having to get into positions that make you wish you did yoga? It will be especially interesting to compare the A9's camera against the A7 and the upcoming Galaxy S10. The first sensor is an ultra wide sensor with 120-degree field of view, f/2.4 aperture, and 8-megapixel resolution. We loved it on the Galaxy A7 as well and the feeling remains on this device. Now, as part of that UI, you'll be getting a number of Samsung's apps, like Samsung Pay and Bixby, whether you like it or not. Bixby Voice enables you to do nearly anything that you can do by tapping on the screen with voice commands.

It's gotta happen, it's just a matter of hitting the mark at the right time - (and that the mark is the right product, of course.) The foldable Galaxy smartphone won't necessarily be the Galaxy S10, but it won't be just a tiny launch, either.

These comments provide clarity on the features that Samsung foldable phone will host. The LG V40 ThinQ has five, but for those who need something a little more affordable, Samsung's new midrange Galaxy A9 has four rear cameras. With all these cameras on board, the camera app becomes quite populated with features.

KitGuru Says: I often find myself gravitating towards the flagship variants, but Samsung has crafted a compelling mid-range offering with the Galaxy A9. While the company is not wrong about incorporating premium flagship features on mid-range handsets, we would also like to see the same effort from them when it comes to software updates.
