Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

That's right: there are four separate cameras on the back of the camera for capturing different types of photos. Samsung also demonstrated the feature on stage.

So what do you miss out on and what do you gain if you buy the A9 over one of the flagship S devices? The selfie camera tends to smoothen facial features even with beauty mode turned off.

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.


The Galaxy A9 features digital assistant Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health. While the looks can be subjective to some, the quality appears great. Samsung did not opt for a notched display on the A9 (2018) which means the South Korean company is yet to launch a smartphone with a notch. The front and back glass is quite slippery and attracts smudges very easily.

Samsung's Galaxy A9 is certainly a fine phone, and I have no doubt that it will be a fan-favorite when it comes out in a few weeks.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in three colours: Bubblegum Pink, Lemonade Blue, and Caviar Black. Koh has said earlier that the device would ship this year, with many expecting it to appear at next month's Samsung Developer Conference.


The Galaxy A9 will arrive with Android 8.0 Oreo as standard, adorned as always with the Samsung Experience skin. Have Samsung's tech boffins taken things a step too far? There's also the option for 6GB or 8GB of RAM. There appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, though some are reporting it's on the side. The company's United Kingdom branch did tell us that the device will hit the United Kingdom in November, and that it will cost £549, but we do not have any specific info for other markets. The device is backed by a 3,800mAh non-removable battery and support adaptive fast charging. The build quality is top-notch and i really liked the overall premium feel of it.

Last week, there were reports of Lenovo's plans to release the first quad-rear camera ever. As of now, there is no clue regarding when it will be launched in India and its pricing.

Kuala Lumpur: Taking on camera-centric Chinese smartphone players head on, Samsung on Thursday introduced Galaxy A9 - its first smartphone with quadruple primary (rear) camera system.
