Samsung has made the Galaxy A9 official, the world's first smartphone to feature four rear cameras. The leak contained images and hardware information about the device, suggesting it would be a mid-range smartphone with a whopping four cameras.
The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. This is instead of the recent trend of smartphones featuring edge-to-edge screens with notches to fit the front-facing camera and other sensors. At the front of the A9 is a huge 24 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 is set for release in November and comes in three colours, caviar black, bubblegum pink and blue lemonade, and will cost £549.

It is expected that Samsung will reveal the device at its upcoming Galaxy phone launch event on October 11th (later tonight Australian time), which, according to the invites sent out, did hint and promise "4X fun".
The Galaxy A9 is basically a mid-range phone with some higher end features. Apparently there will be a primary 24-megapixel sensor, a secondary 10-megapixel sensor with 2x optical zoom, a depth sensor with 5-megapixel resolution and live focus, and an ultra-wide, 8-megapixel sensor with a 120-degree lens. Today, this device is finally available for purchase in Malaysia and it can be yours for RM1,299. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) price starts at Euro 599 (approx Rs. 51,300) and GBP 549 (approx Rs. 53,700). The phone has 3D Glass back and an aluminum frame that makes it look gorgeous, especially with the two Gradient color options. And the 3,800 mAh battery would put even the Galaxy S9+ to shame. Under the hood, there's the powerful Snapdragon 660 SoC along with 128 GB of internal storage coupled with either 6 or 8GB of RAM.
