Samsung Announce Galaxy A9
Samsung have just announced their latest smartphone, the Galaxy A9, which they are stating “it’s built for those who love to explore, capture the moment and share it as they see it”, so you mean bloggers, vloggers, Instagram lovers? As expected, Samsung are pushing the boundaries further than anyone else with the A9, and it will include a whopping four rear cameras, FOUR! Here is what we know so far…
“As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we’re introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation. We’re excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9.”
The rear quad camera will include 2X optical zoom, ultra wide lens with Scene Optimiser, depth of field for those bokeh shots and a 24MP main lens, great for bright & low light conditions.
It will also include a 3,800mAh battery, which will hopefully last long enough for a days outing, plus a 128gb storage, with upto 512gb expandable memory.
It will be available in three colours, Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue & Bubblegum Pink and will include a 3D glass curved back.
The Galaxy A9 will be available in the UK from November and starts at a mere £549, £200 cheaper than the yet released iPhone XR.
