Samsung recently revealed its first-ever triple camera device called the Galaxy A7 (2018) a few days back. Now that its triple camera mystery has finally been solved, Samsung is launching a first-ever quad-camera smartphone on October 11th rumoured to be called Galaxy A9 Star Pro. Most of the attention will go to the camera composition of the handset and a new leak has surfaced sharing with us what it might actually look like on paper.
As per the leak, the Galaxy A9 Star Pro will get a 24MP (f/1.7 aperture) primary sensor much like the A7. An 8MP wide-angle lens with a 120-degree of view will be added to the mix along with a 5MP depth sensor with live focus and f/2.2 aperture. Finally, there will be a 10MP zoom lens with a f/2.4 aperture that will offer up to 2x optical zoom. Like it? Well, at least on paper, it opens up a lot of new use case scenarios.
The leak comes from a German blog – AllaboutSamsung – and it also sheds light on the other internal aspect of the handset. If that’s true we can expect to see a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The Galaxy A9 Star Pro will likely be driven by a Snapdragon 660 SoC with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Traditionally, the Galaxy A9 has had huge batteries, so we could see 4000+ mAh juice packs but this leak suggests a 3,720mAh battery. We don’t expect to see Android Pie just yet on the handset so Android Oreo is the likely option here. Take all this with a pinch of salt though as there’s no way to confirm how authentic the report is.
There’s also a render of the handset but it is a concept and not based on the real device. The Galaxy A9 Star Pro will be released on October 11th.
