Samsung's foldable phone will double up as a tablet

  • Samsung launch industry first quadruple-camera smartphone

Another camera has a wide-angle module of 8 MP with aperture of F/2.4 and a coverage of 120°. The 10-megapixel sensor with the telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom is next in line. All this is backed by an LED flash.

You're looking at an official image of the Samsung Galaxy A9 - a new, mid-range smartphone boasting not one, not two, not three, but four rear-facing cameras. You are also guaranteed to love the GIF-creating feature, taking fabulous pictures with the long exposure "drama shot" feature, and erasing unwanted objects from the background with the blur technology. The Galaxy Note 9 also comes with a dual 12MP+12MP camera, along with an 8MP selfie unit at the front.

It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset that clocks in at 2.2GHz.

This could be a great achievement in the tech world but let's wait and see how far it can go as it's going to be an improved technology that is changing everything we call mobile tech.

The smartphone will be available starting from November in the select global market. It has an internal storage of 128GB which is expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.


The starting price of the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is Euro 599 (about 251,000 Naira) and GBP 549 (about 263,000 Naira). It also comes with Bixby Assistant and Samsung Pay. However, the report adds, the USB Type-C to 3.5mm converter will be present in the retail box.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is now exclusive to the Asian market.

But the device is in the works, and we could catch a glimpse of it at Samsung's Developer Conference next month. Samsung has customised the UI heavily and it is slightly different than stock Android. The way that smartphones are being developed and how cameras are improving is quite incredible.

Samsung has priced the Galaxy at Euro 599 (which is roughly Rs. 51,300) and GBP 549 (roughly Rs. 53,700). In low-light conditions, the phone's main camera combines 4 pixels into one using pixel binning.

The South Korean smartphone maker is expected to launch Galaxy S10 either at CES 2019 in January or at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in February.
