Samsung unveils Samsung Galaxy A9 with four cameras on the backside

If four rear cameras are a little too many for you, Samsung Malaysia just announced the availability of the Galaxy A7 (2018), and this smartphone only has three rear cameras.

Why anyone needs four entire lenses on one side of a phone remains to be seen, but since the leak came from prolific thing-finder Evan Blass, it seems very likely to be accurate.

Then there's a telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom and ultra wide 120 degree 8-megapixel camera which allows users to get more detail packed into their pictures.

Samsung focuses on mid-range, amid talk it's making a phone, that's not the Galaxy S10, with four rear cameras. We do know that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will launch in Europe and the U.K. The unlikely to be a launch market. The camera also gets an AI scene optimised feature that will recognise your environment and automatically adjust the setting to capture the best photo.

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A9 with a rear camera system comprised of four sensors.

LG now hold the record for the most cameras on a smartphone with the V40 ThinQ and its seems Samsung has chose to take it a step further. On the front of the phone is a 24-megapixel f/2 selfie camera. Whether the phone's other aspects match up to the imaging experience is something we will tell you in our Galaxy A9 review in the coming weeks. The octa-core Snapdragon 660 is a solid mid-range chip that should deliver strong performance across the board, and help the A9 keep up with just about anything you throw at it. The device comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants with 512GB of internal storage. 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's new Galaxy S9 upgrade ad tries to capitalize on Apple's iPhone "battery slowdown" controversy. For comparison's sake, the OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch fullHD+ OLED panel, and a 3,300mAh battery, so it's battery lacks in capacity (by 500mAh) compared to the Galaxy A9's unit. This one also comes with an 8MP front snapper.
