Samsung A9 has four rear cameras

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation' Galaxy A9 UK release and price - New budget phone has one an advantage over the Galaxy S9

The company is aiming to do one better with the Galaxy A9, the world's first quad camera phone. Unlike the recently launched Galaxy A7, the new Galaxy A9 still sports a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. I couldn't test the Face Unlock during my limited time with the device, but Samsung has been delivery quality in A series of phones, so we don't expect it to go wrong there. No word yet on pricing or availability for the USA market. Coming to the pricing, it will be retailing from Euro 599 in Europe.

The upper bezel of the Galaxy A9 (2018) houses a 24-megapixel selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

Let's cut straight to the chase.

That's a lot of cameras for one device but it certainly does peak a lot of interest to see how they would exactly work in real life. It took the industry a while to switch from single cameras to dual cameras. We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9.

"With these new phones we are reinventing the way we introduce breakthrough technologies to the people we serve".

There are at least a few more tech specs and features worth mentioning. The second sensor is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, f/2.4 aperture and 10-megapixel resolution. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor along with Adreno 512 GPU.

The phone comes 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.

Lastly, the Galaxy A9 packs a 3,800mAh battery with support for fast charging.

On the front Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 has an 8-megapixel camera.

The Galaxy A9 features a gorilla glass design and has a large, 6.3in Full HD Super AMOLED screen. Do you think Samsung will be able to pull it off? Measuring 162.5x77x7.8mm, and weighing 183g, this isn't a phone for small hands, though it's still comfortable to hold. With Depth Lens, you can manually manage the photos' depth of field and focus on the subject.

It will come in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink. And there's a headphone jack as well as a USB-C connection. There's also both NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 under the hood.

Without actually getting the chance to properly put those four lenses through their paces, it's impossible to assess the A9.
