Intro

A while back, Samsung announced two new phones that focuses on the flexibility of the cameras. Samsung announced both the Galaxy A7 (2018) and also the Galaxy A9 (2018). The Galaxy A7 (2018) that we reviewed here has a total of 3 cameras – a main camera, an ultrawide angle camera, and a depth sensor. The Galaxy A9 (2018) ups the ante by introducing a total of 4 cameras – a main camera, an ultrawide angle camera, a depth sensor, and another 2x zoom lens.

Of course, Samsung upgraded other aspects as well – like the core specs, screen size, and the battery. So let’s take a dive into the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) and see what it is all about.

Unboxing

Upon receiving the new Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) and looking at the box ourselves, we realized that the packaging design is somewhat different from the Galaxy A7 (2018) that we reviewed here. The A9’s packaging is much fancier, showing the back of the phone with a large debossed “A9”.

Opening up the box reveals the accessories box right away. Inside this box is where we can find the included TPU case and also some documentations alongside with a SIM ejector tool.
