Gives you a wide-open view

The 8MP Ultra Wide Camera offers a 120° view that captures almost as much as your eyes can see. So what you see is what you'll shoot. And when you want to snap even more of the scene, the Ultra Wide camera makes panorama shots easier, too.

Shoots clear and bright, day or night

The 24MP Main Camera on Galaxy A9 adapts to low light and bright daylight with ease. Take crisp shots in a bright environment without getting washed out. And at night or in the dark, the camera pulls in more light and minimizing noise to keep the details sharp.

Get alerted when the picture's not perfect

The rear camera also tells you how to fix your photos. Flaw Detection is like an intelligent photo adviser, catching eye blinks, facial blurs and backlighting, then notifying you when something's off in your photo. So you can rework and reshoot before the moment's lost. 3, 4, 5, 6
