Samsung A9 has four rear cameras

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 ultra-wide camera (120°) has an 8MP sensor and f/2.4 lens and finally there's a 5MP depth sensor for bokeh effects.

So we get to the real raison d'être of the Galaxy A9: the four cameras. Buyers will be able to choose from color options include Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink. The recommended retail Galaxy A9 price is set at €599 for the base model with 6GB of RAM in Europe.

Samsung's Galaxy A series has rarely yielded exciting phones - they're mostly mid-range devices with last year's S or Note specs in a more budget-friendly design. Don't forget to also check out our coverage on the first phone to feature four rear cameras at the links below. 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. Imaging features include 2x optical zoom, scene optimizer, manual depth of field adjusting, and much more.

True to rumours that leaked in the lead-up to the event, the A9 builds on the A7's triple rear camera system by going one better, with four rear cameras lined up vertically down its back.

Just as importantly, Samsung has thrown an impressive 6GB of RAM into the phone, so it should ace multitasking, while 128GB of storage makes the price more understandable - after all, the 128GB version of the OnePlus 6 sits at £569 in the United Kingdom, £20 more than the A9. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9?

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9".

There's another new Samsung Galaxy phone trying to grab your attention and this one comes with a very unique feature. Read on to find out everything about this new Samsung smartphone. "It boasts a 3,800mAh battery, and has a 6.3" Full HD+, Super AMOLED display. Samsung said the phone will be available in select markets from November.
