Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

The cameras are also aligned on the left side of the phone, similar to that of the new Apple iPhone iPhone XS - but definitely much bigger.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9".

The Galaxy A9 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen that Samsung is branding an "Immersive Display", which as far as we can tell is marketing term to differentiate between the dual-curved "Infinity Display" technology found on the flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9. Or perhaps it just wanted to be the world's first four-camera smartphone. For more storage, there is a microSD card slot on the device.

Starting from top to bottom when the phone is vertically-positioned, the first camera is an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.

Speaking at the event, DJ Koh, president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung Electronics, said that with the Galaxy A7 and A9, the company was "showcasing Samsung's commitment to serve everyone".

The new module is the 10MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 lens.


The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs.

The 3,800mAh battery charges over USB-C and Samsung continues to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Other features include a fingerprint scanner on the back, face unlocking in front, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC for Samsung Pay (doesn't work with MST).

And that's not where the cameras end, since there is a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 for all selfies and video calls. It will eventually be available in three unique colors; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink so stay tuned for more updates regarding its pricing.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) release date is set for November, with the full list of markets still to be confirmed.
