Samsung unveils first smartphone with four rear cameras

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

While leakers seem to have got the name of the smartphone wrong - it's just called the Galaxy A9 - Samsung officially announced the device today, and the company has confirmed numerous rumors. Samsung also confirmed the cameras on the A9 (2018) uses pixel binning technology in low-light conditions which will result in better performance. But the 120-degree Ultra Wide lens on the Galaxy A9 (2018) allows you to take the picture without twisting yourself into a pretzel.

Get close without compromise with 2x Optical Zoom for incredible and detailed close-up shots even from far away.

The Galaxy A9 is the latest mid-range smartphone to come from the Korean technology firm and it features the world's first quadruple camera system. Finally, the fourth camera is a 5-megapixel depth camera with an f/2.2 aperture. On the front side, the phone has a 25MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture. It will be available in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink color options with gradient finish. The UK price is set at £549 for the solitary 128GB model, but how much USA customers will have to pay is still to be revealed.

Samsung is trying hard to promote its mid-range Galaxy A smartphones more so now than ever before. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy?

Internals are comprised of 4GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB and 512GB on board storage.

Samsung has once again forgone the notch in favour of trim but not-quite-edgeless bezels, framing a 6.3in FHD+ 1,080×2,220 Super AMOLED screen. Notably, the camera is able to recognise the distortion and will offer you the option to correct it, which is a helpful little feature.

What's interesting about the Galaxy A9 is that it has plenty of decent features. It comes standard with 128 GB of storage, although buyers have a choice to supplement that with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM.

We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full. Android 9 Pie-based Experience UI is in development, and it will be coming to the company's flagship phones soon, and the Galaxy A9 (2018) will receive it at some point as well, hopefully before the end of the year, but who knows. It's unclear if it will come to the USA at this point. The device sports two 12MP modules out of which one is a telephoto lens and other is a wide angle lens. Around the front is another 24Mp camera for selfies.
