Samsung Galaxy A9 is the First Quad-Camera Phone

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

At the front, the Galaxy A9 2018 handles selfies with a massive 24MP f/2.0 sensor, which also benefits from Samsung's camera features. Do you think we could see something similar in small, compact cameras? But will that be the reality?

Users can unlock the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) using the software-based Face Unlock functionality.

The Galaxy A9 allows you to capture photos effortlessly with its 24MP f/1.7 main camera on the rear.

Until March 2018 when Huawei launched the P20 Pro, we had no idea we needed three cameras on the back of a phone - and the jury is still out on that one. Numbers are not everything, however, so let us dive a bit further into the cameras and how the magic happens.

Taking advantage of the four cameras are 19 image enhancement modes. If you're willing to pay extra, you can also have this bad boy shipped in a slew of other countries. Samsung has already launched the "flagship" Galaxy S9 and the plus-size Note 9 this year. The new Galaxy will be aimed squarely at the "Instagram generation" when it goes on-sale in mid-November for £549 (roughly $720), Samsung says.

Whether the four cameras can produce respectable pictures, however, is another story.

Samsung has launched its new Galaxy A9 smartphone, which sports the world's first mobile quad-camera system.

Again, four cameras. That is all. Bezels around the sides are kept to a minimum, and there is no notch in sight. Below the hood, the A9 is powered by an Exynos chipset featuring octa-core processors (2.2GHz quad + 1.8GHz quad) and clubbed with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. After recently launching the Galaxy A7 (2018) with three cameras at the back, the South Korean company has taken things to the next level with the Galaxy A9 (2018). It offers 2x optical zoom. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung's Experience UX.

The company is aiming to do one better with the Galaxy A9, the world's first quad camera phone. Coming to the pricing, it will be retailing from Euro 599 in Europe. The Galaxy A9 (2018) starts at €599 in Europe and £549 in the United Kingdom (~$725).
