Background and Identification
The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) provides notable upgrades from the previous 2016 model, including a slightly larger display, significantly more RAM (6/8 GB of RAM in the 2018 version), and facial recognition. The most notable upgrade, however, is the increase in both camera number and quality. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) has 4 rear-facing cameras (24 MP, 10 MP, 8 MP, 5 MP) compared to just one 13 MP rear-facing camera in the Galaxy A9 (2016). The 2018 version’s front-facing camera is also significantly better, offering 24 MP compared to just 8 MP in the 2016 version.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016) is a thin (7.8 mm), rectangular touchscreen device. It has a 6.3-inch screen that extends almost the full length of the smartphone, with only slivers of screenless areas at the top and bottom of the device. The Samsung logo is visible on the back of the encasing. It comes in three colors: lemonade blue, bubblegum pink, and caviar black.
