Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 | Samsung A9 Review

Samsung is the biggest name in Android phones that launches a wide range of smartphones which may be the perfect fit depending on customer needs and budget. The Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 is the world’s first quad-camera smartphone that can capture pictures like never before. It sports astounding design with a 3D rear glass back panel and a lot more for a premium feel. The main focus of the Samsung A9 is its quad-camera setup on the back. But with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB storage (plus microSD slot) and a 3800mAh battery it offers up a decent array of specs.

Design and Display

The Samsung A9 has a premium design with a metal frame and a glass front and rear, ensuring the phone looks and feels the part. It’s available in three colours, with the most eye-catching options being lemonade blue, caviar black and bubblegum pink. The rear mounted fingerprint scanner falls under forefinger nicely, while the power/lock and volume keys on the right. It packs a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display which is bright, clear and colourful. The design language of Samsung’s flagship infinity display spilling over to the Galaxy A9 can be seen. But it’s not quite as edge-to-edge here, with slightly thicker boarders all the way around the device.

Camera

The primary camera is a 24MP which is the default option in auto mode that gives best low light performance. Next is an 8MP, 120-degree wide angle lens which allows to get more into each shot, followed by a 5MP depth-sensing camera used in Live focus background blur mode. And a 10MP telephoto lens providing a 2x optical zoom over the primary camera allowing to get closer to the action. In the front camera there is a 24MP sensor featured by a f/2.0 lens.

Performance

Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 comes with Snapdragon 660 chipset along with 6GB of RAM. Android does runs smoothly on the Galaxy A9 with slick performance and fast app load.

Battery

The phone is backed with a non-replaceable Li-ion battery of 3800mAh, the battery backup looks dependable. There isn’t any wireless charging included here, but the Samsung Galaxy A9 does support fast charging which allows to quickly top up the battery.

Samsung A9 price in Nepal – Rs. 60,390.
