Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018): Price, Features & Reviews

by on

The most important feature of the Samsung Galaxy A9 Smartphone is the 4 rear cameras given in it. We spent a little time with the Samsung phone in the launch event and see what the phone looks like when it first uses it. You also know how it feels to use us for the first time.

It will not be wrong to say that the camera of the phone came in full with the fact that the world of photography changed completely. Beginning with the VGA camera, this journey has now reached four rear cameras simultaneously with a single rear camera, dual rear camera, triple rear camera. Samsung launched its Quad Camera Smartphone Galaxy A9 (2018) in India on Wednesday. Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is the world’s first smartphone that comes with four rear cameras. The phone has 8 GB RAM, 128 GB storage, 18.5: 9 aspect ratio with Infinity Display and many other features. We told a little time with the Samsung phone in the launch event and see how it looks in the first glimpse.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018): Camera is the most prominent feature

Samsung says that the phone’s four rear cameras make it the most special. According to the South Korean tech company, the new Galaxy A9 (2018) will have the best experience with photography. The quality of the phone is the quad camera setup given in it. 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with aperture F / 2.4 and 120-degree lens with 24-megapixel primary sensor, aperture F / 2.4 and 2x optical zoom, with aperture F / 1.7 in the phone and aperture F / 2.2 Along with 5-megapixel depth sensors have been given. All sensors come with LED flash.

The company says that the 24-megapixel primary camera uses Artificial Intelligence in Seine Optimizer mode to detect 19 scenes. The phone has been claimed to have the best images in low-light. Also, Galaxy A9 has a depth sensor for Bokeh mode. With this, the background can be blurred even after photographing. We used the phone’s camera for a while and we got the result right. But we will decide about its performance only after our detailed review.

For the amateurs of Selfie, the company has given a 24-megapixel front camera in the phone, which also acts as a face unlock. We took photos from the selfie camera in the indoor and we liked it. However, we can not make any decision about their quality and front camera performance and we will give the final decision only after the detailed review.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018): Design & Display

For the first time, the phone has a Galaxy A7 (2018) look. The phone has a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display on the front, which is calling the Samsung Infinity Display. But this is not the same as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The phone is fully captured by the front and the display is not in any way. The handset has 3D curved glass and metal frame on the back. Overall, the Galaxy A9 (2018) looks premium and is handy in hand.

Samsung’s quad camera will be available in the smartphone Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Laminated Blue Color. We like the colors of the phone and we have seen in these colors in phones like Oppo F9 Pro, Huawei P20 Pro, Honor 10.

The power and volume buttons are given in the phone on the right, although they have to work hard to run. Galaxy A9 (2018) has a Bixby button on the left, which allows the voice assistant of Samsung to be activated. Galaxy A9 has a fingerprint scanner on the rear and we have no problem using it.
