Samsung unveils first smartphone with four rear cameras

"It boasts a 3,800mAh battery, and has a 6.3" Full HD+, Super AMOLED display. Sitting at the top is an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.

If four rear cameras are a little too many for you, Samsung Malaysia just announced the availability of the Galaxy A7 (2018), and this smartphone only has three rear cameras.

'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.

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November. In front, you've got a 24MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture lens.

Weve had megahertz wars, megapixel wars and now camera count wars. Underneath, Samsung has added the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset to the smartphone, which works in tandem with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM.

The feel-good nature of her resignation was markedly different from other departures from the Trump Cabinet. There has been frequent speculation that Haley harbors her own presidential ambitions.

With four cameras on the rear glass case, Samsung is touting this device as the ideal offering for the Instagram generation.

Samsung has only unwrapped the Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone, but it hasn't disclosed its pricing. It comes with 128GB storage which can be further expanded up to 512GB. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB Type-C, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India).

Samsung will make the Galaxy A9 available in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

Ru Bhikha, mobiles expert at, said Samsung's decision to launch the A9 may be a response to the upcoming release of the year's third iPhone - the XR - and lower-than-expected sales of its S9 earlier this year. 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.
