Yesterday, at an event in China Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy A9s and Galaxy A6s smartphones. The former one comes with the quad-camera set up – the company’s first device to pack quad cam. And the later one is the first ‘ODM’ phone.
So, what does ODM means?
ODM basically means that the device is made in the factory belonging to another company (Wintech in this case).
Samsung Galaxy A9s
The Galaxy A9s comes with quad rear camera setup. Starting with the main module – it’s the 24MP (f/1.7) sensor, then there’s the 8MP 120° ultra-wide angle sensor (f/2.4), then 10MP 2x telephoto sensor (f/2.4) and, finally, an 8MP depth sensor.
Front side there’s only one 24MP sensor for taking beautiful selfies. The display section includes a 6.3” Super AMOLED screen with 1080p+ resolution (18:9 aspect ratio).
Under the hood there resides a Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
To keep the lights of the device on, the company has embedded a decent 3,800mAh battery with fast charging over USB-C. The device is already up for pre-order in the country for CNY 3,500 ($505/€440). The Galaxy A9 (2018) costs €600.
Samsung Galaxy A6s
The ODM Galaxy A6s comes with a Super AMOLED 6″ 1080p+ display screen and is also powered by Snapdragon 660 processor. The memory section of this unit includes 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB storage options.
Camera section includes a dual-rear camera setup – 2MP main module plus 2MP depth sensor – not that impressive, albeit. The front side includes a 12MP selfie cam.
The Galaxy A6s comes with 3,300mAh battery, USB-C, and 3.5mm headphone jack. As far as the pricing goes the device will come with a CNY 1,800 ($260/€230) price tag.
