Samsung launches phones with quad, triple cameras

Samsung Galaxy A9 gets leaked Geekbench results

After having launched Galaxy A7 with triple rear camera set up, Samsung on Thursday unveiled Galaxy A9 (2018) with whopping four cameras on the back.

For now, let's find out what the rest of the Galaxy A9 (2018) offers. Do note that you can expand that existing storage up to 512GB via microSD card slot but we are certain that it will take up a single SIM card slot.

The story of the Galaxy A9 (2018) starts and arguably ends with the four cameras around back. However, the switch to quad cameras could come faster than we thought. The first sensor is an ultra wide sensor with 120-degree field of view, f/2.4 aperture, and 8-megapixel resolution.

Next up, there's an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor that should improve the quality of your zoomed photographs, similar to the 2x optical zoom found on the iPhone Xs.

The Galaxy A9 also features virtual assistant Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health.

Weve had megahertz wars, megapixel wars and now camera count wars.

There's also a 24MP camera at the front.

Samsung states that the Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets starting from November but did not care to divulge the pricing details right now.

Samsung mobile divisions chief DJ Koh introduces the new Galaxy A9. Three colorways are available: Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink, with the latter two presenting eye-catching Huawei-style gradient finishes. With the introduction of quad-camera setups, Samsung is also rumored to include a new cooling system that improves heat dissipation in the camera area. It's not entirely clear what this actually means in practice but a good camera is certainly necessary to capture decent images to upload to the Insta and it seems Samsung believes four cameras is the way forward for this device.
