Samsung Galaxy A9 launched with four rear cameras: Specifications, features

The Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 has been officially unveiled and it boasts an intriguing world's first - four rear cameras. Hopefully, customers who plan to upgrade to the Galaxy A9 will not have to wait too long for the device to be updated to Android 9 Pie. Do note that you can expand that existing storage up to 512GB via microSD card slot but we are certain that it will take up a single SIM card slot. Leaks have suggested that the four camera lenses will be placed in a vertical arrangement with a LED flash below them.

LG now hold the record for the most cameras on a smartphone with the V40 ThinQ and its seems Samsung has chose to take it a step further.

Photography fans may be interested to know that the A9 offers *deep breath* a 24-megapixel camera with a regular f / 1.7 lens, an 8-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 wide-angle lens (up to 120˚ field-of-view), a 10-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 telephoto lens for optical zoom functionality and a 5-megapixel camera with f / 2.2 depth lens. There's a 24-megapixel front camera up front for selfies and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. That will be situated on top of the depth camera at the very bottom, one that has 5MP, F2.2, and feature "live focus". Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November.

The 3,800mAh battery charges over USB-C and Samsung continues to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Along with all of these smartphone snappers Samsung has also included some clever software to help users make the a lot of them.

It's a sign of the times that it's nearly more surprising to see a single camera on the back of Google's flagship Pixel 3 than it is to see quad cameras on this Samsung device, with many other handsets on the market now including two or three lenses on the back.

Yep, the brand new Samsung Galaxy A9 is a mid-range phone that provides "more ways to express yourself than ever before", according to the South Korean company.
