While the blueprint to the triple-camera setup on the Galaxy A7 hasn’t gone dry, Samsung is readying up to jump on the quad-camera territory with the upcoming Galaxy A9s.
The previously leaked Galaxy A9 Star Pro could most likely be the same device which is now modelled as the Galaxy A9, whose specs sheet has surfaced online. A German site All About Samsung has shined some light on the upcoming Galaxy smartphone with detailed specifications that includes the processor, memory and battery capacity of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy A9s will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. The phone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung’s Experience UI on top and will be fuelled by a 3,720mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 2.0.
|Samsung Galaxy A9s|
|Display||6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED Infinity Display|
|Memory||6GB RAM, 128GB storage|
|Camera||24MP (main) + 10MP (telephoto) + 8MP (wide-angle) + 5MP (depth)|
|OS||Android 8.1 Oreo, Samsung Experience UI|
There will be 6.28-inch AMOLED Infinity Display on the front with a screen resolution of 2200 x 1080 pixels. The phone will be built on an all-glass body which houses the four-camera setup and the square-shaped fingerprint scanner at the back.
Speaking of the cameras, the leak reveals that the primary of the four cameras is a 24 MP sensor with a f/1/7 aperture. Other than the main lens, Samsung will use a 10MP (f/2.4 aperture) telephoto lens that zooms to up to 2x, an 8 MP wide-angle (f/2.4 aperture) lens and a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy A9s on October 11 during the “4X fun” Galaxy event in Malaysia. While a four-camera setup is definitely on the cards, Samsung is also developing a triple-camera configuration on the upcoming flagship Galaxy S10.
