Samsung Galaxy A9 aims to be ultimate phone for the Instagram generation

Less than a month after unveiling the world's first triple-camera smartphone in the Galaxy A7, Samsung has just announced the new Galaxy A9 as the world's first quad-camera phone. We guessed it might be referring to a 4x rear camera array equipped device, and that is indeed what was revealed in Kuala Lumpur earlier today as the Samsung Galaxy A9 was launched.

The first-ever smartphone with four rear cameras is here.

The top camera features a120 degrees 8MP lens ultra-wide camera with an f2.4 aperture.

The 24-megapixel main lens captures clearer and brighter images in both bright and low-light conditions, while the ultrawide lens and the scene optimizer allow users to shoot scenes more like a professional. The main camera is a 24MP sensor (f/1.7) which promises detailed shots in Auto mode. Except for the rather plain Caviar Black, Samsung gives the Galaxy A9 colors some cute names, like Bubblegum Pink and Lemonade Blue.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy A9 here in Malaysia. The Oppo R17 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A7, and LG V40 ThinQ that launched in recent weeks all sport such cameras. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? Samsung bases the design around a notchless 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2220 pixels resolution.

Apart from the four-camera setup, Galaxy A9 2018 offers mid-range level specifications. The device sports aluminum body with the 3D curved back body. Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own. In terms of storage, the phone will have an internal storage capacity of 128GB, which can be expanded via microSD by an additional 512GB.

Korean smartphone makers have released smartphones with three or more rear cameras in line with rising demand from the industry for handsets with premium photography features.

Further information is available on Samsung's website here. It comes standard with 128 GB of storage, although buyers have a choice to supplement that with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) price starts at Euro 599 (approx Rs. 51,300) and GBP 549 (approx Rs. 53,700). It's powered by a 3,800mAh battery, complete with fast charging.
