Samsung launched the Galaxy A9 Pro (SM-A9100) in India last month for Rs. 32,490. We already brought you the unboxing and benchmarks of the smartphone, here we have camera samples from the smartphone. The Galaxy S9 Pro has a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, optical image stabilization (OIS), single LED flash and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/1.9 aperture.
The camera UI is similar to any other Samsung smartphone running Android Marshmallow such as Effects ( No effect, Faded colors, Cartoon, Vignette, Grayscale, Moody, Vintage, Tine and optional effects to download for free), Timer (2 to 10 seconds), flash toggle, picture size along with aspect ratio (16MP/8MP at 4:3, 12MP/6MP/2.4MP at 16:9 or 8.9MP at 1:1), Gallery, video record and image capture toggles, selfie camera toggle and several modes (Auto, Pro (to adjust white balance, ISO and exposure manually), Panorama, Continous shot, HDR, Night and optional Sports shot, Beauty face, Animated GIF and rear-cam selfie modes to download for free). The front-facing camera has beauty mode for selfies.
Settings option lets you choose resolution, toggle location tag, option to quickly launch the camera by pressing Home key twice, use the volume keys to take pictures and more.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shot are good most of the times, but it is dull in cloudy conditions. Macro shots are good, thanks to the f/1.9 aperture, HDR shots are good as well. Low-light shots doesn’t have a lot of noise. Images with flash are pretty good since the single LED flash is not overpowering even in macro shots. The front-facing camera is good for selfies and the details are crisp. It is also good for video chats since it can capture 1080p videos.

It can record videos at 1080p full HD resolution at 30 fps. Video quality is good with vibrant colors and is mostly stable, thanks to OIS. Audio is also crisp, thanks to the secondary microphone. Sadly it doesn’t have slow motion recording. Check out the video sample below.
We will bring you the complete review of the phone soon.
