Samsung Intros Galaxy A9 (2018), World’s First Quad Camera Smartphone”

Samsung Electronics on Thursday (Oct 11) unveiled its latest smartphone which has four rear cameras - a first for the company as well as the industry, in a bid to reinvigorate growth in its mobile division. The device sports aluminum body with the 3D curved back body. The Galaxy A9 (2018) brings a quad-camera system that includes a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. Of course, the last camera being a 5 MP depth sensor sounds like a cop-out just to ensure the A9 has the honor of being the first quad-rear camera device in a world where more sensors seem to be the norm.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in the Philippines on December 1, with a suggested retail price of P32,990. The Galaxy A9 (2018) is not only Samsung's first smartphone with four rear-facing cameras, but first in general. The device is expected to arrive in the rest of Europe as well, while the USA may be a potential market for it as well, but nothing has been confirmed just yet, but rumors are claiming that the phone's pricing will start at €599 in Europe, which makes sense compared to the phones United Kingdom price.

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.

As for software, the A9 ships with Android 8.0 (overlaid with "Samsung Experience", the company's proprietary Android skin), but Samsung reps said that an over-the-air update to Pie 9.0 is "on the way" - though couldn't give a more precise estimate than that. Samsung also confirmed the cameras on the A9 (2018) uses pixel binning technology in low-light conditions which will result in better performance.

The Galaxy A9 allows you to capture photos effortlessly with its 24MP f/1.7 main camera on the rear. The phone packs 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card. A 3,800mAh battery powers the phone.

Today, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy A9 (2018).

According to earlier reports, the new Galaxy phone will sport a 6.28-inch full HD+ sAMOLED display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November.
