  • Samsung goes camera crazy with the Galaxy A9 and A7

Samsung has just introduced its very first smartphone with four rear-facing cameras, the Galaxy A9 (2018). Notably, the camera is able to recognise the distortion and will offer you the option to correct it, which is a helpful little feature. Samsung is not the first to take this route, many smartphones have offered multiple cameras including those from Huawei which featured monochrome sensors to enhance the image from the main camera and provide depth effects.

Big tech companies, like Samsung and Apple, have recently come under fire to release lower-priced devices, especially since Apple launched their premium hand-set phone, the iPhone Xs for £999.

Samsung did not give a specific launch date for the new Galaxy A9. With this update, there would be hardly much of a difference in the camera features of the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9/S9 Plus.

There is no denying that the Galaxy A9 is a tall phone thanks to a 6.3-inch FHD+ (1080x2160) Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with a curved back, but it does not sport a curved display, even though curved glass is included on top of that display. These are Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. The bottom sees a speaker grille, USB Type-C port and a headphone jack. The device is backed by a 3,800mAh non-removable battery and support adaptive fast charging.

Speaking to Cnet at the launch, Koh said, "When we deliver a foldable phone, it has to be really meaningful to our customer". Both models sport a microSD card slot supporting up to 512GB of additional storage, should 128GB prove not to be enough. It comes standard with 128 GB of storage, although buyers have a choice to supplement that with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. The company revealed that the Galaxy A9 utilises an octa-core chip offering speeds between 1.8GHz and 2.2GHz depending on the task.

Last week, there were reports of Lenovo's plans to release the first quad-rear camera ever. This is to "soak in the light and create brighter images".

At the top of the vertically aligned camera is an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle lens with a 120-degree view. More lenses doesn't automatically mean better experience though. That said, the 24 MP camera is the primary camera with regular lens.

Before looking more closely at the photography credentials of this device, let us check over the supporting specs of this mid-to-high end smartphone. Keep an eye out for our full review to see how they do. At the front of the A9 is a huge 24 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture. By our count that makes five.

Users can unlock the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) using the software-based Face Unlock functionality. Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets fromNovember. The A7 has a release date of 11 October and will cost £309 in the United Kingdom for the 64GB model.

It's unclear when the USA models will be available, or the pricing, but we expect both to be announced very soon. The device sports two 12MP modules out of which one is a telephoto lens and other is a wide angle lens. The main camera will be a 24MP sensor coupled with a large f/1.7 aperture.
