Samsung Intros Galaxy A9 (2018), World’s First Quad Camera Smartphone

Share

And now today, Samsung has went a step ahead by announcing Samsung Galaxy A9 - world's first smartphone with a whopping four rear cameras. Let's just hope that Samsung doesn't launch a Galaxy A11 phone with five cameras on the back next month. At the top is an ultra-wide 8-megapixel camera with 120 degrees of visibility and an f/2.4 aperture. The second is a 10MP f/2.4 telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom. For $725, that's quite a good feature list, especially if the camera matches up to Samsung flagship standards! On the front side, the phone has a 25MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture. Consumers will be able to choose from three color options including Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. Samsung's been working on next-generation displays for the past several years, having brought devices with curved displays to market since 2013 and "bended" displays (like the Galaxy S9 with its Infinity Display edges) to market since 2014. The Oppo R17 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A7, and LG V40 ThinQ that launched in recent weeks all sport such cameras. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? I have been impressed with the wide-angle lens on the Galaxy A7 and my feeling remain the same for the Galaxy A9 as well.

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

The A9 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display.

Flu season: doctors told how not to catch the flu
One of the most controversial beliefs about the flu vaccine is that the ingredients are "poisonous", and can make you sick. MU Health Care and Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services are mobilizing for the upcoming flu season.

Samsung focuses on mid-range, amid talk it's making a phone, that's not the Galaxy S10, with four rear cameras.

The price is a step up from the Galaxy A8, which was around £100 cheaper, but the new features could make this easily justifiable. Despite the large battery inside, the Galaxy A9 didn't feel too heavy to hold. It also comes with RAM options of 6GB and 8GB. At the launch event Samsung revealed some panorama shots taken with the Ultra-Wide camera and they did look very impressive.

We will update this feature when we have reviewed the A9 in full.

There's also a 24MP camera at the front.
