Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) camera details leak alongside key specs

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) camera details leak alongside key specs
Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) concept render based on leaks and rumors

Earlier this week, Samsung announced its first triple-camera smartphone. But on October 11, the South Korean giant is expected to take things even further by unveiling the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) which will be both Samsung and the world’s first quadruple-camera device.

There has been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the individual sensors – Samsung could easily just place four low-quality ones on the rear and reap the marketing benefits – but today some of the details have finally been revealed. From the looks of things, it seems the company will be including a main 24-megapixel camera on the rear panel. This will then be coupled with an 8-megapixel sensor complete with a super wide-angle lens of 120º field of view. Furthermore, and in a rather interesting move, two zoom cameras of 10 and 5-megapixels respectively also appear to be included. On a separate note, a 24-megapixel selfie camera will also be present up front.

In regards to other specifications, the smartphone will come equipped with a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display. Under the hood, despite previous mentions of the Snapdragon 710, it looks as though Samsung has ultimately settled for the Snapdragon 660. Presumably, this will then be coupled with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and the choice of 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Regardless, a 3,720mAh battery will be included, as will Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box.

As can be seen in the concept image above, the Galaxy A9 Pro is set to adopt a Galaxy A7-like design, albeit with a rear fingerprint scanner. However, the design depicted is still based on rumors so it’s worth waiting for the official confirmation on the day of Samsung’s event.

A bit of overkill perhaps for mainstream phones but I truly hope that at the least we get a 16 or 24mp main rear shooter on future flagships. Not sure why we dropped back to 12mp. All of the newer phones do much better in low light but in outdoor, good lighting many of the older phones have far better zoom/crop ability. I look back at outdoor picts I took with my GS6 and am blown away by how good the detail is even when xooming in - especially considering how old it is.

It's simply ridiculous. Probably not one of those cameras has OIS, so basically the setup is just to tick some marketing boxes.

I hope this thing really takes good pictures, with all the cameras it has. Otherwise it'll just be a total waste of materials. I'd like to get the Nokia 7 plus, but if this A9 Pro can produce some crazy night shots a la P20 Pro I could be tempted.

Man! I think Sammie lost it. Copying others with kids like phones by putting cameras on the left or right instead of the middle and with whole lot cameras instead of at least 2 rear and 1 front with real sophisticated cameras and flash and stay unique.....I'm upset and lost of words right now Sad

Use your brain dude.. If they place 4 cameras in horizontal/ vertical line in center of phone, there will be a huge and long cutout running in the middle of motherboard, there won't be enough space to make connection line between components on the thin part of that mother board. (and if they use square 2x2 camera layout, you'll say they they're copying huawei) There's a limitation using just 2 camera on the back, it can't do telephoto, wide, and ultra-wide. You'll need more than 2 cameras to do that. And it's okay to try something new, it's not like they use your money to make it anyway. There's no reason for you to upset and sad over something that you dont care, lol..

What do you think I'm using? You are looking at it the other way round why I'm looking at it the professional way how Samsung can be and stay unique. Maybe you in fact underestimating Samsung capabilities and potentialities of what Samsung can do anything to get it right/done; I don't. In like minor you failed to understand and therefore underestimate Samsung of their capabilities is just the same you have failed to understand that I am a potential customer, a consumer and is part and parcel of my money, they also use; in simple term, because of people like us they products are made for, and it's a big Yes!, is my money....
