Samsung Galaxy A9 with four back cameras launched: Specifications, features

Up until now some of these features have been provided by software, but Samsung claims the move to hardware will garner better results.

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

SAMSUNG'S CLEARLY GOT A CHUBBY for smartphone cameras given it's revealed the Galaxy A9 with four cameras stuck on to its backside.

There's an ultra wide eight-megapixel (MP) camera at the top. While the front side houses a single 24MP selfie camera, the backside is where all the magic takes place. The bottom lens is for a 5MP depth camera. Samsung has plonked a 6.3in FHD+ 1,080x2,220 Super AMOLED display into a rather neat and rounded chassis with gentle curves to the body but no wrap-around screen.

Beyond the camera, the smartphone has a 3,800mAh battery, a fast-charging USB-C port, 128GB of storage (that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card), and runs Android 8.0. Both RAM variants include 128 GB of storage.

But let's be honest, the Galaxy A9 is all about that quadruple camera. Samsung said the phone will be available in select markets from November. "But I have changed my strategy from this year to bring technology and differentiation points starting from the mid-end".

The Galaxy A9 is the first product to spring from this plan, which could help fend off mid-range rivals like Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, while boosting mobile revenues dragged down by sluggish Galaxy Note 9 sales. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also supports Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health apps as seen on other high-end Galaxy devices.

Samsung on Thursday added another new Galaxy A phone to its portfolio, and it is by far the company's most unique one to date.

Exhausted of your iPhone X?

'The manufacturer will undoubtedly also be anxious about the trio of iPhone launches, which look set to win new fans in all areas of the market - having said that, an affordable but promising mid-tier showing from Samsung has the potential to upset the apple cart, ' he said.
