Samsung Galaxy A9 “First Mobilephone 4 Rear Camera in the World”
In addition to introducing the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 as the first Samsung phone with 3 rear cameras, it turns out that Samsung is also introducing another reliable cellphone, the Samsung Galaxy A9 2018. Unmitigated this model has 4 rear cameras at a time, more than the Galaxy A7. What exactly is the function of this rear camera? Just so you know, each camera in the Galaxy A9 has their respective functions. There are those who can only work on their own while others work to help other cameras produce the desired effect. The following functions are each of the back camera of Galaxy A9 2018:
1. 8 MP Ultra Wide Angle Camera
Starting at the very top is an 8 MP ultra wide angle camera. The main function of this camera is to capture images with a wider angle of view. Standard cellphone cameras generally only have a 77 degree viewing angle. While the ultra wide angle camera has a 120 degree viewing angle. A wider viewing angle allows you to take photos with a larger catchment area.
You can easily take photos of objects and the scenery behind them fuller than a standard cellphone camera. Here is an example of a comparison of standard HP cameras and ultra wide angle cameras:
2. 10 MP Telephoto Camera
Continuing to the order of the second camera from the top is a 10 MP resolution telephoto camera. This camera has an optical zoom capability of up to 2x. What is optical zoom? What is the difference with ordinary zoom? Cellphone cameras in general are only able to enlarge images with the digital zoom method. Digital zoom is actually a method of cropping from existing images. When doing digital zoom, there is no moving lens element, therefore the results of digital zoom are not optimal, blurry, and faded.
Unlike the standard cellphone camera that only relies on digital zoom, the Samsung Galaxy A9 camera with Optical Zoom is able to magnify images optically. When doing optical zoom some lens elements move to enlarge the intended object. Because the image is magnified optically, the optical zoom image looks sharper. The resulting resolution size remains the same even though you've zoomed up to 2x.
3. Main Camera 24 MP
Next in the third place is the high resolution main camera. The main camera acts as the default camera when you take pictures. When you don't select the Ultra Wide or Telephoto option, the cellphone automatically has the main camera when taking pictures. The high resolution of the main camera is also supported by the wide lens opening F1.7, allowing more light to enter the camera. Because a lot of light coming in, the results of photos in the day and night (low light) look more clearly.
4. 5MP Depth Sensor Camera
The 4th camera is a camera with a depth sensor. The function of this camera is to add a bokeh or depth of field effect. This camera can recognize objects and separate them from the background. After objects and backgrounds are separated, Samsung's mainstay Live Focus feature will work to help you adjust the bokeh (background blur) effect as desired.
6.3 inch Super AMOLED screen
The Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 has a 6.3 inch wide Infinity screen. The screen is fairly relieved and the resolution is Full HD + so it's more comfortable to use watching or playing games. Interestingly, the type of screen used is the famous Super AMOLED which has soft light quality and sharp colors. In addition, the Galaxy A9 also has an Always On Display feature that allows the screen to display notifications, times, or calendars when the screen is turned off. There is also an App Pair feature so you can display 2 different application pages on 1 screen.
