Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) Quad-camera Phone to Launch in India Today

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is the first consumer smartphone in the world to feature four rear-facing cameras. Apart from the ability to capture regular images, these four cameras on the back allow users to take wide-angle, telephoto, and portrait photos. The smartphone also keeps the selfie performance in check with its 24MP camera at the front. The smartphone comes packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and it runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS with Samsung’s Experience 9 UI. The device is available in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, both of which have 128GB of storage. 

Pros: The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) offers immense versatility with its quad camera setup. The phone offers a large and vibrant AMOLED, and its battery is also quite good.

Cons: Sadly, the quad camera performance is quite inconsistent and completely falls apart in low-light situations. The performance is unimpressive and the software feels a bit laggy.

Summary: In the race to stand out in this competitive market, Samsung has debuted the Galaxy A9 (2018) which boasts a quad camera setup at the back. While this setup does open a great degree of possibilities, the resulting images are simply not up to the mark. The battery on this phone is quite good, but the lacking performance makes it hard to justify the phone's price.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018): How Does It Compare Against Other Similar Priced Smartphones in India?

With the starting price of Rs. 36,990, the Galaxy A9 (2018) competes directly with the OnePlus 6T and the Asus Zenfone 5Z. Although the Galaxy A9 (2018) offers more and well thought out software features, it falls behind both the smartphones in terms of processing power. The camera hardware on the Galaxy A9 (2018) however looks better than that of its competitors, but even then I think, as an overall package, the OnePlus 6T and the Zenfone 5Z make more sense, at least on paper. We can however only say once we test the device.
