Samsung’s new phone has more camera lenses than buttons

Samsung’s new phone has more camera lenses than buttons

There's also the option for 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

Oh, and there's an equally impressive 24-megapixel front-facing camera that will certainly satisfy demanding selfie queens and kings.

Late last month, South Korean tech giant Samsung announced Galaxy A7 (2018) - its first smartphone with triple rear cameras.

There's a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, face recognition support and a 3800mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The primary camera is a 24MP RGB sensor, and it is coupled with a 10MP telephoto camera that is able to provide 2x lossless zoom function for taking images without losing quality.

A 5MP f/2.2 Depth-camera is there to enable bokeh effects (where the background is blurred out) and can be manually adjusted either before or after you take the shot. On the front, it has 6.28-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution. It includes a USB Type-C port at the bottom center edge along with a 3.5mm audio jack and down-firing speaker grill.

Samsung announced on Thursday its Galaxy mid-range device.

Samsung's Galaxy A9 is certainly a fine phone, and I have no doubt that it will be a fan-favorite when it comes out in a few weeks.




All in all, the camera hardware on the A9 (2018) is impressive. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ comes with a dual rear camera. Samsung said the phone will be available in select markets from November.

For smooth processing, there is an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC which is combined with 3,800 mAh of battery life. According to a leak from Evan Blass and AllAboutSamsung, they are planning to release the Galaxy A9 Star Pro with four rear cameras. You can pick this device up at all authorised Samsung retailers and you also get to choose from between four different colourways: Blue, Gold and Black.

That's your lot. As far as I can tell, there's really not that much to it, and Samsung doesn't appear to be offering anything any other manufacturer hasn't already brought to the table countless times before. This is one of Qualcomm's most powerful mid-range processor, and it's made using a 10nm manufacturing process.

Samsung has also embedded a low light mode with the cameras.

It's somewhat odd for Samsung to launch a phone with world-first features that's not a flagship, but the A9 is plenty powerful. We loved it on the Galaxy A7 as well and the feeling remains on this device.

Internals are comprised of 4GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB and 512GB on board storage.
