It seems and is an upward race. Samsung today announced Galaxy A9. The novelty is a quad camera back that definitely surpasses in number the triple camera of the Huawei P20 Pro that at the time had surprised a bit ‘all. All located on the back of the phone include a 24 MP main camera (F1.7), a telephoto lens with a 10 Mp 2X optical zoom (F2.4), an ultra-wide angle at 120 degrees by 8 MP (F2.4) ) and a 5 Mp depth-of-field sensor (F2.2). The photographic-muscular force demonstration is impressive, a four-eyed phone had never been seen before. But what are four sensors for?
According to Korean engineers, four lenses offer “unlimited perspectives”: for example, you can take advantage of the 2x optical zoom both from near and far and use the ultra-wide-angle lens. The depth objective promises to achieve a better bokeh effect thanks to the live focus function. Finally, the main 24 MP lens promises superior performance in terms of brightness and color dynamics. The use of these four cameras will be analyzed in the field. However, it is clear that the smartphone in the intentions of Samsung is increasingly a phone disguised as a camera. Opposing choice instead seems to Google that has its own two days ago launched Pixel 3 with a single camera but super-intelligent and enhanced with machine learning algorithms. It will be interesting to understand which of the two will take better pictures.
