Samsung Galaxy A9 aims to be ultimate phone for the Instagram generation

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

The device, which is expected to be marketed as the Galaxy A9, will be the world's first smartphone to feature four rear-facing cameras. Dubbed as the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), it comes with a total of five cameras- four on the rear side and one on the front side. The flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB) is available at a discounted price of Rs 42,990 instead of Rs 62,500 during the festive season sale.

The device will come with 6GB of RAM along with 128GB internal storage expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card.

The Galaxy A7 will be available in the Philippines starting October 27 at a suggested retail price of P17,990. The phone's main lens is a 24 megapixel shooter. The device is backed by a 3,800mAh non-removable battery and support adaptive fast charging.

Let's start with the snapper specs: the rear array comprises a 24MP f/1.7 aperture lens, a 10MP f/2.4 2x telephoto lens, an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth sensing.

She is now believed to be receiving psychiatric care somewhere on the east coast. Her message referred to the hurtful impact of "negative comments".

The Galaxy A9 isn't out yet, and in fact you've got a little while to wait.

There's a trio of colours with silly names to choose from as well: Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black, and Bubblegum Pink. Like most Samsung flagships and premium mid-range models, the device also comes with an always-on display which can show the current time and notifications while the screen off.

With all those cameras, Samsung was very clear that it's targeting the A9 at the Instagram-obsessed, so it's no surprise to see it's put some work into making sure the phone itself looks the part too.

Samsung describes the Galaxy A9 as the world's first "quad-camera" phone. With all these four rear cameras, the device can capture photos with 2x optical zoom, 120-degree wide-angle view, and ideal bokeh shot. We've reached out to Samsung for clarification. And there's a headphone jack as well as a USB-C connection. No word yet on pricing or availability for the USA market. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience skin on top.
