Samsung Unveils The First Smartphone With Four Cameras

Samsung Galaxy A9 gets leaked Geekbench results

At an event in Malaysia, Samsung has unveiled the world's first smartphone with four cameras on the rear side.

There's not long to go now before the official unveiling of the Galaxy A9 - what else do you reckon it'll have in store?

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. The first sensor is an ultra wide sensor with 120-degree field of view, f/2.4 aperture, and 8-megapixel resolution.

The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. For more storage, there is a microSD card slot on the device.

Many buildings have no roofs. "We are in new territory", National Hurricane Center Meteorologist Dennis Feltgen wrote on Facebook. Linda Albrecht, a councilwoman in Mexico Beach , spoke to the network about leaving her home with only a few essential objects.


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

The latest addition to the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones comes hot off the heels of the Galaxy A7 announced just weeks ago.

If you think this is the phone for you then there's more good news as the A9 lands in your pocket for a very reasonable £549 - £190 less than the Galaxy S9.

The new module is the 10MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 lens.

Did Crown Prince Order Murder of Saudi Journalist?
Social media sleuths identified another man from the squad as a senior crimes scene investigator in Saudi Arabia. News channel 24 aired the video Wednesday, suggesting that Khashoggi was inside of the black Mercedes Vito.


The primary camera is a 24MP offering which is the default option in auto mode, and the one which will give you best low light performance. As Android Authority reports, the phone runs a Snapdragon 660 and includes a headphone jack for old's time sake.

On the subject of availability, Samsung says that the Galaxy A9 2018 will be available at all Samsung Galaxy Experience stores and authorised resellers in November, but fell short of providing a specific date, or even a launch price.

South Korean girl group AOA demonstrate the camera capabilities of the new A9. So far it looks to be shaping up to be a solid mid-range Android phone and with a retail price of £549 it looks to be offering some nice features without hitting the insane flagship price tags. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also supports Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health apps as seen on other high-end Galaxy devices.
