Samsung Galaxy A9 Is The World’s First Smartphone with 4 Cameras

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

"That's why the Galaxy A9 is packed with Samsung's best camera innovations, to enable all consumers to achieve more, experience more and unlock more possibilities every day", Samsung says. Now it's 2018, and phones have more cameras on them than buttons - at least that's the case with a new Samsung Galaxy phone. The handset has an 8-megapixel Ultra-Wide Angle lens with a 120-degree field of view. Next is a 10-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and an f/2.4 aperture.

The quad-lens system on the Galaxy A9 is made up of a main 24-megapixel sensor for generic shots and low light images, and a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor for blurred backgrounds, otherwise known as bokeh effect. Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own.

Samsung Galaxy A9 sports a 3D glass curved back available in three colour options of "Caviar Black", "Lemonade Blue" and "Bubblegum Pink".

Samsung hasn't revealed the price of the device yet but has confirmed that it will be available in selected markets starting November.

Connecitivity-wise, the Galaxy A9 2018 comes with a USB Type-C port and, to our surprise yet again, a 3.5mm headphone jack. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? It will be especially interesting to compare the A9's camera against the A7 and the upcoming Galaxy S10.

It nearly marks the most points scored by an SEC opponent since Ole Miss barely lost to the Tide 48-43 in September 2016. Alabama, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, did what was expected Saturday against Arkansas.

Memory hirs 4GB of RAM and storage starts at 128GB onboard, which can be upgraded to 512GB with a microSD card.

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. That said, the 24 MP camera is the primary camera with regular lens.

Despite being "optimised for the Instagram generation", there are plenty of other noteworthy features, which may have you wondering whether you need to spend £1000 on a phone.

The 4x fun device is the Galaxy A9 and it appears to be an improved version of the Galaxy A8 Star. The smartphone comes in two different configurations - 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. It could face competition by the end of the month, however, as the OnePlus releases its iterative 6T upgrade - still, the four-camera setup is incredibly tempting. Hopefully, customers who plan to upgrade to the Galaxy A9 will not have to wait too long for the device to be updated to Android 9 Pie. In terms of design, the Galaxy A9 looks similar to the Galaxy A7 (2018). It's unclear if it will come to the USA at this point. The main camera will be a 24MP sensor coupled with a large f/1.7 aperture.

The third lens is a 120° wide-angle attached to an 8Mp sensor.
