Samsung Galaxy A9 launched with four rear cameras: Specifications, features

Samsung has launched its new Galaxy A9 smartphone, which sports the world's first mobile quad-camera system. The Infinity Display design allows the notch-free screen of the Galaxy A9 to deliver an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The phone is powered by an octa-core processor with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB storage, which is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card slot.

The upper bezel of the Galaxy A9 (2018) houses a 24-megapixel selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

The story of the Galaxy A9 (2018) starts and arguably ends with the four cameras around back.

Samsung Galaxy A9's quad-camera setup. Sitting at the top is an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.

The Galaxy A9 also features virtual assistant Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health.

The third sensor is the main camera with 24-megapixel resolution and f/1.7 aperture. The primary camera is a 24MP RGB sensor, and it is coupled with a 10MP telephoto camera that is able to provide 2x lossless zoom function for taking images without losing quality. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung's Experience UX.

There's also a 24MP camera at the front. It will eventually be available in three unique colors; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink so stay tuned for more updates regarding its pricing.

Other key features of the phone include rear-facing fingerprint scanner, software-based Face Unlock feature, and connectivity options like Bluetooth and Quick Charge 2.0 support.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is set to go on sale in November this year starting at £549 - retailing over £200 less than the Galaxy S9.

Though Samsung has not officially confirmed which phone it will announce, the Galaxy A9 is the subject of a whole barrage of recent rumours.
