Samsung Galaxy A9 gets leaked Geekbench results

The new Samsung Galaxy A9 was revealed in all its quad camera glory at the company's Samsung A Galaxy Event, held at the W Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, putting to rest speculation that had been growing ever since the tech giant teased its "4x fun" event last month.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world-leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9".

The upper bezel of the Galaxy A9 (2018) houses a 24-megapixel selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture. It is followed by 10-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. It offers a 2x optical zoom compared to the main camera.

The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs. And the fourth one is the depth camera with 5-megapixel resolution and f/2.2 aperture. Samsung has included Intelligent Scene Optimizer feature that relies on AI for enhancing shots in different scenes.

Probably the biggest highlight of the Galaxy A9 is its quad-camera setup on a single side. Samsung has gone all-out in the memory department because the highest specifications version of the newly announced smartphone features up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory, though this variant is going to be limited to certain markets. Both RAM variants include 128 GB of storage. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung's Experience UX. It also supports Samsung Pay via NFC. The phone is backed by a 3,800mAh battery. A fingerprint scanner is present on the backside of the phone.

It will remain to be seen as to whether the Galaxy A9 Star Pro will be making its way to our shores but we will be reaching out to Samsung Australia after the launch for local availability and pricing.

Galaxy A9 arrives in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.
