Samsung recently presented the Galaxy A7 as the newest addition to the popular A-series. This is the first Galaxy smartphone that has three cameras at the rear. We are seeing this trend with more and more models, for example the recently introduced LG V40 ThinQ and the Huawei P20 Pro. New information indicates that Samsung is also working on a phone with four cameras on the back, the Galaxy A9.
Samsung Galaxy A9 with four cameras
Upcoming Thursday, on 11 October 2018, Samsung is organizing an ‘A Galaxy Event’. You can assume that a new Galaxy A smartphone will be presented during this event, presumably this will be the Galaxy A9. Only one sentence was mentioned on the teaser; ‘4x fun’. Since then, the international media has assumed that Samsung will unveil its first mobile phone with four digital cameras on the back next week.
In the meantime, information about the camera setup has also been published. The advanced middle-class smartphone is supposedly equipped with a 24 megapixel camera with a regular f / 1.7 lens, an 8 megapixel camera with f / 2.4 wide-angle lens (120˚ FOV), a 10-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 telephoto lens and a 5-megapixel camera with f / 2.2 depth lens. In addition to optical image stabilization, it is also possible to zoom in 2x optically. In addition, the depth sensor ensures that you can make beautiful Live Focus recordings. Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy A9 seems to have a 24 megapixel selfie camera, this sensor is manufactured by Sony.
Other specs of the Galaxy A9 2018 model
The new Samsung smartphone probably gets a 6.28-inch Full HD + AMOLED display. The 2018 model will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor with 6 GB RAM memory and 128 GB storage memory. In addition, it will be possible to expand the memory with a microSD card, up to a maximum of 512GB.
The fingerprint scanner appears to be at the back of the Galaxy A9. This is somewhat remarkable because Samsung has opted for the latest models – including the Galaxy A7 – to place the fingerprint sensor on the side of the device. Probably it is also possible to unlock the Samsung A9 with your face, for this facial recognition technology is implemented. However, the most secure method remains unlocking via your finger.
Furthermore, the new Galaxy A-series model seems to be equipped with a 3.720 mAh battery, which can be recharged extra quickly with a USB Type-C cable and Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

Note: If there is more than one download option, that likely means that you need to download and install the Bug Fix Update for your smartphone or tablet device before you can actually update to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Step 1:Before you go trying to update your device, you should check which version of Android you are running. You might already be on the latest version. It's easy to check so follow this guide up to step four. This screen will have a section called 'Android version'. If it doesn't, click 'Software information' to find out.
Step 2:Scroll down the Settings menu and click on 'About Phone' or 'About Tablet'. If you have a tabbed settings menu then this will appear in the 'general' section.
Refer to Android developer page to choose which version of Android your phone or tablet is running. I.e, 4.0.4 corresponds to Ice Cream Sandwich, an old version of Android that was released in 2013.
Step 3:Note: Your phone or tablet may require a Wi-Fi connection to search for an update. We suggest you to download the software Droid Over Wi-Fi because the file size can be large.
Choose and click the "Software Update" option. Next it will search available update for your phone or tablet. If update is available, you will be asked if you want to install it. Select "yes" and it will install the new operating system in your device. If you want to install it later, you can download the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow file first.
