Let's start with the snapper specs: the rear array comprises a 24MP f/1.7 aperture lens, a 10MP f/2.4 2x telephoto lens, an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth sensing.
This allows for a variety of different shooting modes, as well as customised shots using features like artificial bokeh effects. We guessed it might be referring to a 4x rear camera array equipped device, and that is indeed what was revealed in Kuala Lumpur earlier today as the Samsung Galaxy A9 was launched. The glass-bodied phone (no wireless charging though, sadly) is available in your choice of Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue or Bubblegum Pink - the latter two of which take a leaf out of Huawei's book with some really stunning gradient finishes.
Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone was launched in October 2018.
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. The smartphone runs Android 8.0 Oreo, and ships with a 3800 mAh battery that draws power from a USB Type-C port. It will be especially interesting to compare the A9's camera against the A7 and the upcoming Galaxy S10.More news: Markets hammered after USA stocks rout
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?
The Korean company's new phone will also feature mobile payment capabilities and expandable storage of up to 512GB.
Inside the Galaxy A9 you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM (varies depending upon operator/region). Interestingly, The Google Pixel line, the newest Pixel 3, just announced a few days ago still retains a single camera on the rear, focus more of their efforts on software to achieve high-quality results.
The Galaxy A9 boasts a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display that has a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. The company's United Kingdom branch did tell us that the device will hit the United Kingdom in November, and that it will cost £549, but we do not have any specific info for other markets.
