Details of unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018)’s four rear cameras revealed

Samsung Galaxy A9, the world's first quadruple camera smartphone has marked its debut in Malaysia.

On Thursday, Samsung has officially unveiled the A9, a photography-oriented mid-ranger with a total of four rear cameras.

Given Huawei and LG have both whacked a trio of cameras on their flagship phones' backsides, Samsung seems to have gone one better, but we'd have to give the cameras a test before we can see if they are anything more than a marketing gimmick. The third camera is the main 24MP sensor with a wide f/1.7 aperture, while the fourth camera is a 5MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The 128GB of storage is impressive, with the microSD card slot able to tack on up to an additional 512GB. And the phone has a 3,800mAh battery.

Samsung, along with rival smartphone maker Apple, has come under increased pressure from lower-priced but premium-made handsets from the likes of OnePlus, Honor and other Chinese manufacturers including Xiaomi, forcing it to create a larger range of devices that house technologies normally reserved for flagship launches. Today, the company has finally launched the all-new Galaxy A9 (2018) as the world's first smartphone with quad camera setup on the rear.

The new module is the 10MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 lens. Samsung is offering you a lot more ways to capture photos that one may otherwise be unable to do with regular dual cameras. Currently, it is running the Android 8.0 Oreo update and it uses a Type-C USB port for charging purposes.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in the Philippines on December 1, with a suggested retail price of P32,990.

The Galaxy A9 will cost between €550 and €599 ($635 and $690), according to AllAboutSamsung. Similar to the P20 Pro, the Galaxy A9 (2018) features a gradient around back that goes from pink, blue, or black at the bottom to a lighter hue of those colors at the top.

As for the display, the A9 boasts of a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1080×2220 pixels. Coming to the pricing, it will be retailing from Euro 599 in Europe. While Samsung confirmed that it would be bringing the A9 (2018) to India, it did not reveal any specific launch date.
