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

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

While the phone is effectively a direct successor to the original Galaxy A9 that first launched in 2016, the new Galaxy A9 tops its predecessor as the first smartphone fitted with a quad-camera main array. Notably, the camera is able to recognise the distortion and will offer you the option to correct it, which is a helpful little feature.

This is yet another camera feature that makes the Galaxy A9 appealing.

Samsung also released today its first television commercial for the device, showing how the owner of another smartphone needs to bend backward like Gumby to capture the image of a wide building. For reference, the Galaxy A9 will be priced at £549 ($724 USD) when it launches in the UK. For comparison's sake, the OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch fullHD+ OLED panel, and a 3,300mAh battery, so it's battery lacks in capacity (by 500mAh) compared to the Galaxy A9's unit. Thanks to this construction the A9 measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs in at 183g but should feel comfortable in the hand with its 3D Glass curved back. Three colorways are available: Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink, with the latter two presenting eye-catching Huawei-style gradient finishes. Sensors on the phone include Face unlock, Fingerprint sensor, Compass/ Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.

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

Microsoft Explains Why Windows 10’s October 2018 Update Was Deleting People’s Files
At just two days into the rollout when we paused, the number of customers taking the October 2018 Update was limited. This is the feature that lets you move a known folder like C:\Users\Name\Downloads to D:\Downloads, for example.

Apart from the four-camera setup, Galaxy A9 2018 offers mid-range level specifications.

The rear cameras are arranged vertically.

The Galaxy A7 meanwhile features a 8MP 120 degree ultra wide lens, a 24MP lens, and a depth lens. He added that it is not viable to deliver products which don't provide a good user experience. That said, the 24 MP camera is the primary camera with regular lens.

A 5MP f/2.2 Depth-camera is there to enable bokeh effects (where the background is blurred out) and can be manually adjusted either before or after you take the shot.

New finance minister Mboweni faces same old problems
Both Zuma and the Guptas - who are at the heart of the inquiry into so-called "state capture" - have denied any wrongdoing. President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced Tito Mboweni as the new Minister of Finance.

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.

We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full. By our count that makes five.

The Galaxy A9 comes shipped with Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box. To be fair, this once annoying overlay has become a much nicer environment in recent iterations, shedding its garish colours and insane amount of options for something more refined.
