Samsung is all geared up to introduce its new beast Galaxy A9 in the Indian market this month. The Galaxy A9 comes a couple of weeks after the Galaxy A7—company’s triple camera setup phone. The Galaxy A9 is conceivably more eye-catching being the world’s first smartphone with four rear cameras. For 599 euros, Galaxy A9 was first heralded in Malaysia last month.
Of course, the array of four cameras vertically set on the rear panel is the biggest highlight about the Galaxy A9, thus the expectation bars are set quite high. Samsung has been introducing unique and new features on its Galaxy A series phones to help it stand out of the crowd in a highly competitive market and boost its sales graph.
The Galaxy A9’s quad camera squad comprises of a 24MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture, and a 5MP depth sensor. And additionally, a zoom lens to allow a sharper zoomed in photographs. With technology at this stage, it is very important that the cameras serve their purpose and not merely serve as a gimmick.
Checking out the cameras of the phone in last month’s launch event, we can infer that the photos look quite bright and sharp in the indoor settings too. The cameras are loaded with several features like Scene Optimizer, Live Focus, Super Slow-Mo, and Beauty. They further allow you to switch between the standard lens, 2X optical zooming lens, and wide-angle lens by simply tapping the leaf icon on the bottom.
The quad-camera system isn’t the only unique feature that Samsung is working on. This novelty comes with a unique gradient colour scheme on the back that comes in Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink. It certainly makes the device look a lot different than what we have seen all the while offered by Samsung phones. The gradient colours for sure remind us of Honor 10 or Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Without questioning Samsung’s gig to attract a youthful demographic has been acclimated to gradient designs from rival brands.
The new design expression for sure makes the Galaxy A9 look way more attractive. In addition, the glass on the back curves and edges and hooked on the metal frames give the users Galaxy S9-like in-hand feel and premium comfort. It is very common to spot these model elements in premium mid-range phones. The OnePlus 6T and Honor 10 both offer gradient colours and all-glass bodies. Therefore, it will be interesting to see the customer’s reaction to the Galaxy A9.
Samsung’s latest model the Galaxy A9 was launched last month possessing and octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset. This is an awesome mid-range chipset that we have seen in power and runs smoothly on handsets like Realme2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi A2 and the Nokia 7 Plus. As long as Samsung decides to opt for Exxon’s chip for the Indian market, the Snapdragon 660 SoC should probably offer a swift experience all over.
The company has been slowly losing its grip in the emerging markets like India due to its inability to squeeze its price competingly. This is the reason why Samsung is introducing novel features like quad-camera system. Everything eventually zeroes down on the fact that how good the four cameras on the Galaxy A9 are when compared to the mainstream dual camera phones or even Samsung’s own triple-camera phone Galaxy A7.
