The first-ever smartphone with four rear cameras is here. On Thursday, Samsung has officially unveiled the A9, a photography-oriented mid-ranger with a total of four rear cameras. It’s somewhat odd for Samsung to launch a phone with world-first features that’s not a flagship, but the A9 is plenty powerful.
It has a 6.3-inch, 2,220×1,080 pixel, AMOLED screen and is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chip. It comes with 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, expandable with microSD cards with up to 512GB of space. It has a 3,800mAh battery and runs Android 8.0.
The A9 closely follows Samsung’s A7, a triple-camera phone that was launched in September. An overall more powerful phone and likely a good indication of where Samsung’s Galaxy flagships will go next. The Samsung A9 will launch in black, blue and pink in November, but there’s no word on the price yet.
