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

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

The smartphone industry is doing a Gillette, it seems: first we had dual rear-camera phones, then Huawei came out with the three-rear-cam P20 Pro, and now Samsung has one-upped them with the Galaxy A9, which according to a new leak will have FOUR of the blighters.

Next up is an 8MP, 120 degree wide angle lens allowing you to get more into each shot, followed by a 5MP depth-sensing camera which collects data used in Samsung's Live Focus background blur mode.

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. Let us know in the comments.

Imaging features include 2x optical zoom, scene optimizer, manual depth of field adjusting, and much more.
