Samsung Galaxy A9 – Quad camera

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is looking to allow you to capture all kinds of photos while you’re on the move. 

  • The Telephoto lens allows you to get close without any loss of detail using 2X Zoom. 
  • The super star ultra-wide lens lets you shoot more with lesser effort
  • The depth lens allows you to get those ‘bokeh’ images and adjust the blur to your liking. 
  • Last but not least, the main camera is a 24MP (f1.7) lens which is said to allows great photography in day as well as night
  • The ‘scene optimiser’ introduced in the Note 9 makes it way to the mid-ranger as well. 

Samsung Galaxy A9 – First Look

In a world where flagship devices cost over Dh4000 ($1088.98), the Samsung Galaxy A9 is definitely a mid-ranger at Dh2149. Considering the fact that Samsung is very clear about who this phone was made for, it seems to offer everything they would need.

A quad-camera for a versatile photography, a Super AMOLED display, lots of storage capabilities and a huge battery should be a lot for any social content creator out there today. Unfortunately, the device comes with Android 8.0 Oreo. 

Whether all this works well, we’ll only know after the review. For now what do you think? Does the Galaxy A9 interest you?
