Evan Blass has spoiled a bit of Samsung's surprise ahead of the event, showing off a single image of the rear of the Galaxy A9 complete with its four cameras, which are arranged vertically in-line. A 3,800mAh battery powers the phone. Putting two and two together and coming up four makes us fairly positive that the leaks are legitimate.
When is the Samsung Galaxy live stream?There is also a 24-megapixel sensor on the front of the A9.
The quad camera definitely looks interesting, but we'll have to wait and see how useful it is in real-world usage conditions.
The phone will come with plenty of storage, at 128GB (6GB RAM) and up to 512GB of expandable memory. Finally, the last camera in the set-up packs an ultra-wide 10-megapixel sensor that provides a 120-degree field of view and should let you capture tall landmarks and big group shots without too much hassle.
Google drops out of Pentagon’s $10 billion cloud competition
The contract has a massive ceiling value of $ 10 billion over a period of 10 years, one of the largest of its kind in history. That work will not include JEDI, which seeks to improve the Pentagon's cloud capabilities.
Next up, there's an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor that should improve the quality of your zoomed photographs, similar to the 2x optical zoom found on the iPhone Xs.
Below it is the 24-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung's Experience UX.
There's no water resistance nor full Samsung Pay support, but you do get Bixby Voice and Dolby Atmos support (over wired and Bluetooth audio). A fingerprint scanner is present on the backside of the phone. Below that, there's a depth-sensing 5-megapixel lens created to gather all the depth information needed to add an artificial bokeh blur to the background in Samsung's adjustable Live Focus feature. The A9 also comes in striking new gradient colors.
Samsung states that the Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets starting from November but did not care to divulge the pricing details right now.
