Samsung launches A9, world's first smartphone with four rear cameras

Samsung goes camera crazy with the Galaxy A9 and A7

Samsung's brand new Galaxy A9 to take mid-premium smartphone market by storm

The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB of RAM.

It'll take some proper processing power to make the most of those four lenses, and while the A9 is hardly packing top-of-the-line specs, it should hold its own. The phone features a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, while it comes with Bluetooth 5 and an NFC chip.

The Galaxy A9 will be sold for 599 euros. Thanks to this construction the A9 measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs in at 183g but should feel comfortable in the hand with its 3D Glass curved back. Currently, it is running the Android 8.0 Oreo update and it uses a Type-C USB port for charging purposes. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue.

Samsung Galaxy A9's four camera setup aims to club all possible kinds of sensors and combine them to deliver better quality photos. Sitting at the top is an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.

The cameras are also aligned on the left side of the phone, similar to that of the new Apple iPhone iPhone XS - but definitely much bigger. Now, the phone's battery can be recharged fast, as the company bundles in a quick charger, but do keep in mind that we're looking at Quick Charge 2.0 speeds here, nothing earth-shattering.

Samsung's new Galaxy S9 upgrade ad tries to capitalize on Apple's iPhone "battery slowdown" controversy. Needless to say, the Galaxy A9 impresses quite a lot in the specifications and features department, so Samsung is actually staying true to its word that the Korean giant will incorporate high-end features on its mid-range lineup. If you need more, it can support microSD card expansion of up to 512GB on its dedicated slot.

There's not long to go now before the official unveiling of the Galaxy A9 - what else do you reckon it'll have in store? Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets fromNovember.

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.
