World’s first smartphone with a quad camera setup on the back


Samsung has announced the Galaxy A9 with a rear camera system comprised of four sensors. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9? The 128GB of storage is impressive, with the microSD card slot able to tack on up to an additional 512GB.

But let's be honest, the Galaxy A9 is all about that quadruple camera. It's also been tipped to feature four rear cameras, and this is after all "A" Galaxy Event.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a dual SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM.

The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. It offers a 2x optical zoom compared to the main camera. Apparently, the four-camera Samsung will feature a main sensor of 24MP, with F1.7, capable of great low-light performance. Oh and of course there's also a 20MP selfie shooter up front with an f/2.0 aperture lens. We also get Android 8.1 Oreo, which is inexcusable given Android 9 Pie's availability.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) even outdoes some of its more powerful siblings with its 3,800mAh battery, which should deliver solid longevity given the processor choice and display resolution. Two of which - Bubblegum Pink and Lemonade Blue - feature a fun colour gradient, while the third - Caviar Black - is a dead serious solid black.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November. Below that, there's a depth-sensing 5-megapixel lens created to gather all the depth information needed to add an artificial bokeh blur to the background in Samsung's adjustable Live Focus feature.

Other features include a fingerprint scanner on the back, face unlocking in front, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC for Samsung Pay (doesn't work with MST).
