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

Nichole VegaOct 12, 2018

The device, which is expected to be marketed as the Galaxy A9, will be the world's first smartphone to feature four rear-facing cameras. The four-camera highlight is first of kind for the smartphone tech. Today, this device is finally available for purchase in Malaysia and it can be yours for RM1,299.

Moving on to the main attraction, the rear of this smartphone features four camera sensors round the back, as you can see in the pictures.

The Galaxy A9 features a gorilla glass design and has a large, 6.3in Full HD Super AMOLED screen. Powering up the phone is, surprisingly, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 6GB RAM, and pretty sizeable 3800mAh battery. If you need more, it can support microSD card expansion of up to 512GB on its dedicated slot. Lastly, on the front of the phone, there is a selfie camera: 24MP, f/2.0.

It wouldn't be a phone launch without a headline-grabbing feature, and despite the new Samsung Galaxy A9 sitting in the middle of Samsung's formidable phone range - "premium midrange" is the preferred description - it still gets an eye-catching new spec. The primary camera is a 24MP RGB sensor, and it is coupled with a 10MP telephoto camera that is able to provide 2x lossless zoom function for taking images without losing quality.

The rear cameras are arranged vertically.

What are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9? The quad camera setup at the back on the Samsung Galaxy A9 consists of one 8 MP camera, one 10 MP camera, one 24 MP camera, and one 5 MP camera (top to bottom).

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. Samsung is yet to announce when the phone will make its way to India. The device is expected to arrive in the rest of Europe as well, while the U.S. may be a potential market for it as well, but nothing has been confirmed just yet, but rumors are claiming that the phone's pricing will start at €599 in Europe, which makes sense compared to the phones United Kingdom price.
