  • Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Pro

The device, which is expected to be marketed as the Galaxy A9, will be the world's first smartphone to feature four rear-facing cameras.

Samsung has also included a number of flagship features in its Galaxy A9 device, such as its Infinity Display, Bixby assistant, and support for Samsung Pay. The phone's cameras are vertically-aligned, while an LED flash sits right below them.

Weve had megahertz wars, megapixel wars and now camera count wars. Finally, the fourth camera is a 5-megapixel depth camera with an f/2.2 aperture. Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own. And, it has been launched in Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black and Bubblegum Pink color variants. In an email to HEXUS, Samsung said that the Galaxy A9 will become available in the United Kingdom from November priced at an RRP of £549. The Galaxy A9, which is due on sale in November, will cost a comparatively affordable £549. Samsung is not the first to take this route, many smartphones have offered multiple cameras including those from Huawei which featured monochrome sensors to enhance the image from the main camera and provide depth effects. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? The Ultra-Wide Angle feature of the Galaxy A9's camera makes it much easier to do that. If you wish to expand it further, then there is a provision of 512GB microSD card expandability option on offer.

In terms of specs, it also runs on a Snapdragon 660 processor as the Galaxy A8 Star but it is said to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For comparison's sake, the OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch fullHD+ OLED panel, and a 3,300mAh battery, so it's battery lacks in capacity (by 500mAh) compared to the Galaxy A9's unit. Unfortunately for tech enthusiasts, the A9 will not feature wireless charging. Despite the large battery inside, the Galaxy A9 didn't feel too heavy to hold. The smartphone comes in two different configurations - 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage.

We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full. This dual-SIM smartphone comes laden with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It's unclear if it will come to the United States at this point.

I was able to try out the cameras in a limited setting for a brief amount of time.in doors and with adequate lighting, photos look sharp thanks to a fast shutter speed and f/1.7 aperture.

The third lens is a 120° wide-angle attached to an 8Mp sensor.

Along with all of these smartphone snappers Samsung has also included some clever software to help users make the majority.
