  • Samsung Galaxy A9 Quad-Camera Mid-Range Phone Image And Benchmarks Leak

Samsung has made the Galaxy A9 official, the world's first smartphone to feature four rear cameras.

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

Moving on, the Galaxy A9 2018 sports a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, which has a maximum resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels.

For performance, the Galaxy A9 will rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB of the base model.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is set for release in November and comes in three colours, caviar black, bubblegum pink and blue lemonade, and will cost £549. Using all four cameras, one can obtain professional shots with Scene Optimizer.

Above you'll see a Samsung-branded concept phone that didn't exactly materialize.

Camera number one is a 24mpx "main camera", camera two is actually a 5mpx depth sensor, the third camera is a 10mpx "telephoto" camera with upgraded optical zoom, and the final camera has an ultrawide, 120-degree lens. Powered by artificial intelligence, Scene Optimizer is capable of recognizing 19 different scenes and then adjusting the settings accordingly to get you the ideal shot. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9?

Samsung recently confirmed that it will be focusing more on the mid-range smartphone line up and will bring some features that are yet to debut in the flagship Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C and NFC. Moreover, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will also feature a similar camera setup and so will the Galaxy S10 next year. Interestingly, The Google Pixel line, the newest Pixel 3, just announced a few days ago still retains a single camera on the rear, focus more of their efforts on software to achieve high-quality results. There is now no pricing information available for the device.
