Samsung launches world’s first four-camera smartphone

They include a 24-megapixel main lens, an 8-megapixel 120-degree wide angle lens, a 5-megapixel depth lens and a 10-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy A9 here in Malaysia.

In the United Kingdom it will cost £549, though we don't yet know the U.S. or Euro price of the phone. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also packs decent mid-range hardware- Snapdragon 660 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM, Super AMOLED display and a massive 3800mAh battery.

Aligned vertically in the corner of the phone's body, each lens is optimised for a different type of photo, hopefully resulting in one of the most versatile camera setups around.

The company is aiming to do one better with the Galaxy A9, the world's first quad camera phone. There is now no pricing information available for the device.

Measuring 162.5 x 77 x 7.8mm, the Galaxy A9 is actually slightly taller and wider than the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which has a fractionally bigger 6.4-inch display. Theoretically, Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 will be capable of delivering photos that will cover more real estate, have clarity and sharpness and bokeh mode.

Rare illness strikes down U.S. kids
It's so rare that less than one in a million will get AFM, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention . CDC has tested many different specimens from AFM patients for a wide range of pathogens (germs) that can cause AFM.

Moving on from the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy A9 comes with an unknown octa-core processor that's clocked at 2.2 GHz.

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

Speaking about the new A9, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, said: "As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication".

The Korean company's new phone will also feature mobile payment capabilities and expandable storage of up to 512GB. Don't forget to also check out our coverage on the first phone to feature four rear cameras at the links below. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience skin on top.

Finally, a 3,800mAh battery should be enough to see this coast past the 24-hour mark on typical usage, and we wouldn't be surprised if plenty of people see it last a couple days on the trot.

As for a release date, the Galaxy A9 will be releasing in select markets sometime in November.
