The four cameras

The four camera setup is a combination of a 24MP primary camera, an 8MP 120-degree wide angle lens, a 5MP depth-sensing camera, which collects data used in Samsung’s Live Focus bokeh mode, and a 10MP telephoto lens to allow 2X zoom over the primary camera. 

The phone uses the primary camera to capture in auto mode and is also the best for low-light situations. The wide angle lens allows you to capture a wider frame, whereas the 5MP depth-sensing camera works with the primary lens to create background blur effect in the pictures.

Round the front, there's a 24MP selfie camera for selfies and video calling.


Samsung is equipping the latest Galaxy A9 with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, microSD slot, Android 8 Oreo and a 3,800mAh battery with fast charge support.
