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

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

There appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, though some are reporting it's on the side.

There's an ultra wide eight-megapixel (MP) camera at the top.

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. The bottom lens is for a 5MP depth camera. Samsung has plonked a 6.3in FHD+ 1,080x2,220 Super AMOLED display into a rather neat and rounded chassis with gentle curves to the body but no wrap-around screen. Samsung has gone all-out in the memory department because the highest specifications version of the newly announced smartphone features up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory, though this variant is going to be limited to certain markets. For more storage, there is a microSD card slot on the device. The device is backed by a 3,800mAh non-removable battery and support adaptive fast charging. It is being dubbed Galaxy A9 (2018), Galaxy A9 Pro, Galaxy A9 Star. Buyers will be able to choose from color options include Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. "In a world like this, everyone deserves access to the technology that delivers the most value in their eyes".

The Galaxy A9 allows you to capture photos effortlessly with its 24MP f/1.7 main camera on the rear.

Exhausted of your iPhone X?

The latest addition to the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones comes hot off the heels of the Galaxy A7 announced just weeks ago. The good news is that you won't have to worry about this ad interrupting your favorite television shows like Manifest, Impractical Jokers and The Good Doctor.

Nokia 6.1 Plus gets Android 9 Pie beta
The leaked images of the device suggest a metal chassis sandwiched between two glass slabs and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Thankfully, this time, we get the Helio P22 chipset which is a decent performer as the same SoC powers the Xiaomi Redmi 6 .


Google and Samsung have committed to RCS interoperability between Android Messages and Samsung Messages.

Whole photo galleries are being sent to contacts by Samsung Messages via SMS, some Galaxy owners report.

Big tech companies, like Samsung and Apple, have recently come under fire to release lower-priced devices, especially since Apple launched their premium hand-set phone, the iPhone Xs for £999. With this update, there would be hardly much of a difference in the camera features of the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9/S9 Plus.

With the launch of the next iPhone now days away, the leaks, rumors, and analyst chatter is reaching fever pitch.

The ultrapricey Note 9 is one of the year's best phones.
