The Galaxy A9 will be available in the Philippines on December 1, with a suggested retail price of P32,990.
To recap, this smartphone features a 6-inch Super AMOLED display pushing a Full HD+ resolution of 2220×1080 pixels. Below that, a 2x optical zoom-enabled telephoto camera will enable users to get closer to their subjects. The last module is the depth-sensing camera with a 5MP sensor and f/2.2 aperture. The device sports aluminum body with the 3D curved back body.
LG now hold the record for the most cameras on a smartphone with the V40 ThinQ and its seems Samsung has chose to take it a step further.
At the front, the Galaxy A9 2018 handles selfies with a massive 24MP f/2.0 sensor, which also benefits from Samsung's camera features. A 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture that adds depth to the captured images follows the main sensor. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C and NFC.
The quad camera definitely looks interesting, but we'll have to wait and see how useful it is in real-world usage conditions.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is made out of metal and glass, same as some of the company's more expensive offerings, like the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and Note 9. There's also 128GB of in-built storage and a sizeable 3,800mAh battery, which Samsung claims is more than enough to keep the handset running throughout the day.
We won't detail too much about the phone specs but here are the main features.
In their announcement the firm's president of mobile communications, DJ Koh, said: "As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication".
