Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

Samsung goes camera crazy with the Galaxy A9 and A7

As expected, this is a mid-range smartphone, even though it belongs in the upper-mid-range sector.

This is yet another camera feature that makes the Galaxy A9 appealing. This is one of Qualcomm's most powerful mid-range processor, and it's made using a 10nm manufacturing process.

If you need more, you can pop a microSD card into the dedicated slot on the A7's triple SIM tray for up to 512GB of extra space. For battery back-up it comes with a 3,800mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The 8 megapixel wide-angle lens has a wider viewing angle.

At the front, the Galaxy A9 2018 handles selfies with a massive 24MP f/2.0 sensor, which also benefits from Samsung's camera features.

It measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs 183 grams.

You'd normally expect to see such a suite of snappers on Sammy's flagship Galaxy handsets, but the Galaxy S9 only has two rear cameras, as does the Note 9. There appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, though some are reporting it's on the side. Samsung has instead chose to debut this quartet of cameras on a handset aimed at the mid-range market. It will come in three color options: Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink.

Last night, thanks to an all-around disaster, the Yankees were pushed to the brink of elimination by the Red Sox. New York Yankees fans aren't exactly covering themselves in glory this postseason.

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

Blass's image includes some info about what each lens is for, although it doesn't go very far to convincing us that more cameras = better photos. However, the company did say that the phone would launch sometime during mid-November in an unknown number of markets.

Love it or hate it, Samsung's Bixby assistant is here to stay.

Samsung has been generous with onboard storage too. It could face competition by the end of the month, however, as the OnePlus releases its iterative 6T upgrade - still, the four-camera setup is incredibly tempting.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 will be available in the United Kingdom for £549 (~$724) in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink starting in November 2018.

It'll go on sale in the United Kingdom in November, starting at £549. "Possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely, it will expand". If the phone makes its way to the United States, its price tag will probably be around $599.
