Who wants one camera when you can have four? Samsung is launching the new Galaxy A9 locally in December 2019, and it is the cameras on this smartphone that truly set it apart from the rest.
The Galaxy A9 comes with many of the same features as the Samsung Galaxy S6, albeit with a larger 6.3-inch display, making it the ideal device for gamers or users that often consume media on their phones. The bigger overall size of the phone means it also houses a more powerful 3,800mAh battery, with some reviews believing the battery could last well beyond 24 hours with average use. The premium mid-range smartphone has a Full HD+ AMOLED screen, with what Samsung refers to as “Immersive Display”.
The Galaxy A9 boasts not one, but four rear cameras, and comes with a range of shooting options, sometimes tailored for a specific lens. The quadruple lenses on the Galaxy A9 are made up of a 24MP lens that serves as the primary lens, backed up by a 5MP depth lens to assist in the creation of portrait images with the blurred bokeh effect in the background. A third 10MP ultra-wide lens and a fourth 8MP telephoto lens with x2 optical zoom round off the rear cameras, but a fifth front-facing 24MP lens will ensure that your selfies are top-notch – various selfie features allow users to further edit photos taken with the front-facing camera.
The four cameras on the Samsung Galaxy A9 promise to bring a photographic experience that is a cut above the rest, as the device is able to shoot in 4K normally, in slow motion or in super slow motion, and the various shooting modes that are available will delight users who pride themselves on high-quality Instagram posts.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 launches globally in mid-November, and will be available to South African consumers in December of this year. Keep an eye on Smartcom’s website and Facebook page for announcements of when you can start ordering the device. It is available in three colour options: Lemonade Blue, Bubblegum Pink and Caviar Black.
