Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) packs a 24-megapixel (f/1.7) + 10-megapixel (f/2.4) + 8-megapixel (f/2.4) primary camera on the rear and a 24-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

Samsung Galaxy A9 features a 6.3-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080x2220 pixels.

The highlight of the upcoming Galaxy A9 (2018) will no doubt be its quad-camera setup at the back. Samsung has already launched the "flagship" Galaxy S9 and the plus-size Note 9 this year.

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.

Powering the phone is a 3,800mAh which Samsung says should provide all-day power and the device comes with 128GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card.

South Korean girl group AOA demonstrate the camera capabilities of the new A9.

Galaxy A9 arrives in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

Samsung's quad-camera smartphone is capable of taking ultra-wide, 120-degree panoramic shots and also boasts 2x optical zoom.

The technology world is falling over itself to see who can load their smartphones with the most gimmicks.

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation".

Mr Koh told Channel NewsAsia last month that transferring technology to cheaper models would help to attract budget-constrained millennials seeking innovative products, while differentiating its devices in a saturated smartphone market.
