Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone launched with world's first 4-lens 47MP rear camera

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November.

Evan Blass has spoiled a bit of Samsung's surprise ahead of the event, showing off a single image of the rear of the Galaxy A9 complete with its four cameras, which are arranged vertically in-line. The phone packs 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is powered by octa-core (4x2.2GHz + 4x1.8GHz) processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM.

The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs.

The latest addition to the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones comes hot off the heels of the Galaxy A7 announced just weeks ago.

Next up, there's an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor that should improve the quality of your zoomed photographs, similar to the 2x optical zoom found on the iPhone Xs. The first camera is an 8MP f/2.4 120° ultra-wide angle sensor.

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation".

Samsung has also included a number of flagship features in its Galaxy A9 device, such as its Infinity Display, Bixby assistant, and support for Samsung Pay. It measures 162.50 x 77.00 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 183.00 grams.

In addition, Samsung said the phone's AI scene recognition feature is able to identify photo subjects and adjust settings accordingly for the best photo.
