First Galaxy A9 (2018) commercial touts the quad camera

The Galaxy A9 (2018) is the world’s first smartphone with a quad camera. Samsung is obviously going to tout this. It has become the only come to launch such a device. The new Galaxy A9 was unveiled at an event in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. With the launch out of the way, Samsung can now get down to the business of selling this device.

It has released the first Galaxy A9 TV commercial. As expected, the quad camera is the star of the show. The entire commercial is dedicated to the camera’s capabilities with no mention of any of the handset’s other abilities.

You’ll buy it for the camera after all

The device itself isn’t all that different from other mid-range Samsung handsets. It’s similar in more ways than one to the Galaxy A8 Star. The only thing that sets it apart is the quad camera system. The Galaxy A9 (2018) arrives not long after the new Galaxy A7, Samsung’s first smartphone with a triple camera.

The quad camera system is what this TV commercial focuses on. It starts off by highlighting the 8-megapixel Ultra-Wide lens that has a 120-degree FOV. The 10-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom gets its moment to shine as well. The 5-megapixel Depth lens allows for Live Focus photos, adding bokeh (blur) effect to images. The primary 24-megapixel lens is a solid shooter in its own right. Check out our samples from all four of the Galaxy A9’s cameras.

We mentioned in our Galaxy A9 hands-on that the quad camera system on this device works as advertised. There are some handy software features as well to enhance the imaging experience. Other than that, it’s a run of the mill mid-ranger from Samsung.

Samsung said yesterday that the Galaxy A9 will launch in mid-November. We have already told you how much the Galaxy A9 (2018) will cost.
