Entire Samsung Galaxy A9s spec sheet gets detailed in latest leak
Samsung Galaxy A9s concept render based on leaked information

After a number of leaks and with just over one week to go until its official announcement, the entire spec sheet of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9s has leaked out.

Kicking things off with a bang, Samsung’s upcoming device will come fitted with Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 660. Just as expected, this will then be coupled with a very respectable 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card slot. Completing the internal setup will be a relatively large 3,720mAh battery and Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box complete with the Samsung Experience UI customizations on top.

Moving on to the external characteristics, the front panel is dominated by a 6.28-inch AMOLED Infinity Display complete with a resolution of 2200 x 1080p. This is combined with a premium all-glass construction. Over on the rear, it’s clear that the Galaxy A9s is inspired by the Galaxy A9 Star that debuted earlier this year. After all, it adopts a square-shaped fingerprint scanner and a rather odd-looking square-shaped vertical camera setup in the corner which is now home to four cameras. 

Speaking of which, the main one brings a resolution of 24-megapixels and a f/1.7 aperture, alongside OIS. The second camera boasts a megapixel count of five at a f/2.2 aperture and acts as a depth sensor that is used for live focus. Similarly, another telephoto camera is included with double the resolution and twice the optical zoom length. Lastly, an 8-megapixel 120º wide-angle camera is present too. Up front, an 8-megapixel selfie sensor is also included.

The Samsung Galaxy A9s is currently set to go official on October 11 alongside the Samsung Galaxy A6s, with sales of the two presumably commencing later on this month.

So what is the point of having a depth sensor if it already has a telephoto lens.....

It's not really a depth sensor, it's just act like one. If you want to make bokeh effect you'll need secondary sensor for parallax and calculate object distance, since this phone have 3 other sensors aside the main camera, secondary sensor can be any of these 3 sensor. But since the secondary camera has the same vocal length as the first, it's the best choice for this case. (normally other phone use telephoto as the main camera, and main camera as depth sensor when taking bokeh. since main camera have wider FoV the phone can crop it and make parallax with the image from telephoto), if it's use telephoto as depth sensor, it won't work well because telephoto only capture the middle portion of the main camera, and it can't make parallax with it, But if your point is why didn't they remove that second sensor, and use telephoto as depth sensor instead? Most likely because they'll need to make excuse to be the first to make a smartphone with 4 back cameras.

Indeed that's really unfortunate, but it is the truth.
