Galaxy A9 specs and quad-camera details
The Galaxy A9 specs reportedly include a 6.28-inch FHD+ (2220×1080) sAMOLED display with slim bezels. There’s an 8-megapixel front camera above the display with f/1.7 aperture and autofocus. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
It has support for microSD cards of up to 512GB. There’s a fingerprint sensor at the back and support for facial recognition. There’s a 3,720mAh battery keeping the lights on. Quick Charge 2.0 will enable rapid charging over USB Type-C. That’s all well and good. It’s a bona fide mid-range device on paper but that’s not what you’re here for.
What you want to know are the quad-camera details. The Galaxy A9 will be Samsung’s first smartphone with a four camera system at the back. The report mentions that the main 24-megapixel sensor features optical image stabilization and f/1.7 aperture. The second is a 5-megapixel depth sensor with live focus and f/2.2 aperture. Next comes an 8-megapixel 120-degree wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture. A 10-megapixel f/2.4 sensor with 2x optical zoom caps the quad camera system.
The camera software will be crucial in getting the best out of these cameras. Samsung will likely offer some AI-based features, as a result, to further enhance the imaging experience. It has already brought the Scene Optimizer from the Galaxy Note 9 to the Galaxy A7.
No word as yet on the pricing and availability information for this device. Samsung is going to officially unveil the new Galaxy A9 on October 11 in Malaysia. We’ll be on the ground in Kuala Lumpur to bring you all of the latest updates from the event.
