Why has Samsung put four cameras on the Galaxy A9?

We guessed it might be referring to a 4x rear camera array equipped device, and that is indeed what was revealed in Kuala Lumpur earlier today as the Samsung Galaxy A9 was launched.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 6.3-inch fullHD+ (2220 x 1080) Super AMOLED Infinity display.

The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB of RAM. Coming to the software, the Galaxy A9 offers Android 8.0 Oreo, and knowing Samsung, the Pie update isn't likely to roll out until 2019. It has a 24MP f/1.7 main camera, 10MP f/2.4 telephone camera with 2X optical zoom, 8MP f/2.4 ultra-wide camera and a 5MP f/2.2 depth camera. The device will launch in the United Kingdom and other select markets in November. This camera gives you the ability to manually control depth of field and focus on the subject. Samsung is yet to announce when the phone will make its way to India.

The Galaxy A9 and it appears to be an improved version of the Galaxy A8 Star.

The latest smartphone from Samsung also features Bixby, Samsung Pay, Samsung Health and several multi-tasking advantages. Connectivity options include Cat.9 LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C port.

It's somewhat odd for Samsung to launch a phone with world-first features that's not a flagship, but the A9 is plenty powerful.

The Galaxy A9 has been priced at 599 euros (approx Rs 51,300). The Oppo R17 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A7, and LG V40 ThinQ that launched in recent weeks all sport such cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a dual SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM.

"We live in a world where phones are central to who we are and how we interact in the world", he said. A "long lasting" 3,800mAh battery is fitted.

Aside from the eye-catching camera set-up, the new phone comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, contactless mobile payment capabilities, and expandable storage of up to 512GB - all features common to high-end smartphones.
