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

Well, the Chinese OEM were a tad slow and have been beaten to the punch by Samsung, with the South Korean giants officially launching the Galaxy A9 (2018) today-four rear cameras in tow. The Geekbench listing has now confirmed the existence of the vertically staged four rear camera setup on the back of the device.

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. Next is a 10-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and an f/2.4 aperture. Following, a 5 MP f/2.2 camera for more depth of field. There is also a 24-megapixel sensor on the front of the A9.

The 6GB Galaxy A9 will cost €599 ($691) in Europe and the phone will be available in three color options, including Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. No word yet on pricing or availability for the U.S. market. The new Galaxy will be aimed squarely at the "Instagram generation" when it goes on-sale in mid-November for £549 (roughly $720), Samsung says. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? It sports a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2220 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

However, before the official launch, the Galaxy A9 (2018) is spotted on the Geekbench listing.

Along with the injuries, he also beefed with then-head coach Jeff Hornacek, and was essentially exiled from the team. The former Defensive Player of the Year was still owed $38 million over the next two seasons.

The Galaxy A9 is not a flagship phone, though it's no slouch either.

There's also a fingerprint scanner on the back and support for Samsung's artificially intelligent assistant, Bixby.

"As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung recently launched its range of Galaxy J and A series phones at competitive price points and not the forget the most affordable triple-lens camera phone - Galaxy A7 (2018). It has a 3,800mAh battery and runs Android 8.0. The camera is also equipped with features such as Scene Optimizer, AI Scene Recognition to deliver professional quality photos, even in low-light conditions.
