At its "Galaxy Unpacked" launch event in Kuala Lumpur, Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy A9, also called the "World's first quad camera smartphone". According to a leak from Evan Blass and AllAboutSamsung, they are planning to release the Galaxy A9 Star Pro with four rear cameras.

This allows for a variety of different shooting modes, as well as customised shots using features like artificial bokeh effects. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue. Samsung is yet to announce pricing and availability of the Galaxy A9, and if the South Korean giant gets the segment right, we feel people will have a great camera to look forward to. We do know that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will launch in Europe and the U.K. The U.S.is unlikely to be a launch market.


Samsung wants to offer you a variety of ways to capture a photograph on one device. There's also 128GB of in-built storage and a sizeable 3,800mAh battery, which Samsung claims is more than enough to keep the handset running throughout the day.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) flaunts a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display on the front which carries a resolution of 1080×2220 pixels and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the recently launched Galaxy A7, the new Galaxy A9 still sports a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. With all these four rear cameras, the device can capture photos with 2x optical zoom, 120-degree wide-angle view, and ideal bokeh shot.


Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A9. "In a world like this, everyone deserves access to the technology that delivers the most value in their eyes". Below it is a 10MP telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom that sits above the 24MP main camera.

Finally, the phone has a 5-megapixel portrait lens that shoots images with a low depth of field.


Now for those in the states, we have some good news and some bad news. The smartphone runs Android Oreo 8.0 out-of-the-box and comes with a triple card slot.
