The smartphone is powered by Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 processor and a large 3800 mAh battery with fast charging capability that gives you the high speed performance you need, all day, every day.
Galaxy A9 is packed with Samsung’s latest, path-breaking camera innovations that enable consumers to do more, experience more and unlock more possibilities, every day. Galaxy A9 is the perfect companion for Instagram hungry millennials, letting them shoot in ways they could never do before.
“As a leader in smartphone technology, we are all about meaningful innovation. For the first time ever, we have brought the rear quad camera with Galaxy A9. With ultra-wide, optical zoom, low light capabilities and live focus, Galaxy A9 has a camera designed for every moment in the life of the young millennial,” said Aditya Babbar, General Manager, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
World’s first rear quad camera
Galaxy A9’s camera comes with a telephoto lens capable of 2x optical zoom that allows you to take crisp, detailed shots, even from a distance. This is perfect for macro-photography, wildlife photography and any situation where you need to get up-close to the action.
With Galaxy A9’s 24MP main lens, you can capture clear and bright images in both bright and low light conditions. In low light conditions, the A9 intelligently merges pixels to allow more light so that you get the best pictures in the day or at night.
Galaxy A9 helps you express your creativity with the Depth Lens, giving you the freedom to manually manage the photos’ depth of field and focus on the subject for stunning, professional looking images. Thanks to Live focus, every picture you take is now display picture worthy.
Galaxy A9’s Ultra-Wide Angle camera allows you to capture not only your subject, but the whole scene. Presently, where most smartphones capture 77 degrees in their field of view, Galaxy A9 is able to capture 120 degrees; this lets you capture more expansive photos, just like what your eyes see. This comes in handy when you need to capture landscapes, city scape, group shoots or in any situation where you need to fit a lot into a single frame.
Galaxy A9 automatically recognizes 19 kinds of scenes and optimizes colour settings to suit the content—whether it’s a nightscape, a field of flowers, or a plate of food. Now you don’t need to worry about tedious details like colour saturation, white balance, and brightness. Enjoy the scenery, and let the Galaxy A9 do the hard work. Galaxy A9 also intelligently detects when there is a flaw in an image you just clicked (like closed eyes, facial blur or back-light) and notifies you so that you can capture the picture perfect moment.
Galaxy A9 also comes with 24MP selfie camera with selfie focus and pro-lighting for clear selfies with studio quality lighting. For those who like to have fun on social media, Galaxy A9 lets you discover a new you with AR emoji. You can now create up to 36 animated emojis of yourself to add more expressions to your chats.
