Samsung has once again managed to cram the Galaxy A series up after appearing to be tidying up in early 2018. The smartphone behemoth launched the Galaxy A8 (2018) duo which led us to conclude that there would not be many more models this year. However, we’re in October and Samsung is poised to launch a quad-camera device widely believed to be the Galaxy A9 (2018). The same handset has seemingly appeared on Geekebench today with model number SM-A9200.
Now, most of the buzz surrounding the phone is not due to the components you will find revealed in the Geekbench test. The quad-camera is what everyone is looking forward to. Nonetheless, the Galaxy A9 (2018) features a Snapdragon 660 SoC with 6GB of RAM. This should be one variant while we could also see others. It runs Android Oreo, which if it is in actuality, would be a bit disappointing. The scores are much better than the triple camera Galaxy A7 (2018) which tells us that it will be a better performer.
As for the quartet of cameras, a leak earlier last week revealed some key information regarding the sensors. The leak suggested a regular 24MP primary sensor would be accompanied by an 8MP (120-degree wide-angle) lens, a 5MP depth sensor, and finally a 10MP zoom lens. This is sure to spruce up mobile photography with a lot of freedom for new shots which would not be possible earlier. However, all this comes from the realm of leaks and we wouldn’t advise caution before taking this info too seriously.
The launch is tomorrow, so you won’t have to wait a lot to see the first quad-camera smartphone from Samsung. Stay tuned in to Mr. Phone for more awesome content.
