The first phone to have a rear camera with four lenses, the Galaxy A9, was recently revealed by Samsung, the South Korean company.
The phone will be available for purchase in one storage size, 120 GB, but its memory can be expandable up to 512 GB using a microSD card.
This Samsung phone will not lack the Bixby virtual assistant, the Samsung Health fitness tracker or the Samsung Pay payment service. It will be available in three colors such as Lemonade Blue, Bubblegum Pink, and Caviar Black. We are quite sure that the blue and pink will e more appreciated. The difference between these two colors and the black is that they have an ombre effect finish, similar to the design of Huawei P20 Pro in Twilight. This ombre effect streaks the market for the first time, and that is mesmerizing.
Samsung Galaxy A9 Edges
You can find a curve at the edges of A9’s rear including a square fingerprint sensor mounted in the middle, being the element that introduces the Galaxy A9 in the mid-range phones category. The four-lens camera is located on the top left of the phone while in the front you can see a small bezel at the top and one at the bottom but not as subtle as S9 Plus’ or S9’s. The edges are not so curved because the A9 does not seem to feature an Infinity Display even though e would have wanted it to.
The president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh, says that the smartphone innovation is very important for Samsung as they are a global leader. Besides that, they also understand the request for it, and they are doing what they can to give it to people. In addition to that, he also said that the camera system is evolving and improving as well so they will spread the next-generation technology across their entire collections of Galaxy phones so everybody can come in contact with the innovation even though they are on a budget.
A few months ago Koh said, according to CNBC, that the South Korean tech giant does not plan to give the innovations to the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series first. Galaxy A9 will get what is new at the moment. Alongside with this phone, this year the foldable smartphone will be released.
As we said, the technology is developing day by day, so people interested of it do not mind spreading rumors and leaks about it. A picture made its way to the internet on Wednesday having as subject the rear of the phone.
Samsung Galaxy A9 Cameras
The quad camera system has part of it a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom for detailed close-ups and long shots, a depth lens aimed at letting users manage a photo’s depth of field and focus, an ultra-wide lens with scene optimization and artificial intelligence-powered scene recognition, and a main rear camera with 24 megapixel resolution and autofocus. What is great about having these many cameras is that you can alternate between different lenses to the photo will be taken in different effects such as shots taken from a long distance or panoramic ones.
The first phone to include a triple-lens camera on the back was an A7 model. Now with the Galaxy A9, Samsung is bringing significative changes to the table, but it is not the only one. LG and Huawei did not miss the chance to release phones equipped with three-lense cameras.
Samsung has announced the existence of Galaxy A9 after its most expensive high-end phone, Galaxy Note 9, was released in August at the price of $1,249.99 with extended storage and $999.99 for the standard version.
The global smartphone market looks like it has slowed down and that could be seen in the earnings guidance released by the company. They have anticipated 34 percent less sale compared to last year.
There is a continuous competition going on between phone manufacturers on the digital market. When it comes to its flagship phones, Samsung gets face to face with Apple. The company has rivals in the mid-range category as well with Chinese competitors such as Xiaomi, ZTE, and Huawei.
