Samsung presents the Galaxy A9 (2018) with quad camera

Samsung has formalized in Milan its first smartphone with 4 camera sensors: the Galaxy A9 (2018 Edition). This model obviously focuses on photography and video. Samsung presented the world’s first quad camera smartphone ahead of Huawei and its Mate 20 Pro that will be presented next week.

This time, it’s Samsung’s turn to overtake Huawei by introducing its first smartphone with four cameras in the back. It was thought that this feature would be reserved for the future Galaxy S10 but it seems that the South Korean manufacturer has decided to offer the most innovative technologies on the market for its “mid-range” smartphones.

The new Galaxy A9 (2018) embeds 4 photo sensors:

  • 24 megapixel main sensor f / 1.7
  • Telephoto lens 10 megapixels f / 2.4 (optical zoom x2)
  • 8 megapixel f / 2.4 (120 °) wide-angle lens
  • 5 megapixel depth sensor f / 2.2

Funny thing about this Galaxy A9, Samsung has decided to offer the fingerprint reader in the back and not on the side of the device as was the case for the Galaxy A7.
