Today, the company has finally launched the all-new Galaxy A9 (2018) as the world's first smartphone with quad camera setup on the rear. As expected, this is a mid-range smartphone, even though it belongs in the upper-mid-range sector.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone was launched in October 2018.

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 is powered by an octa-core chipset, but the nature of this processor is still unknown. It offers a 2x optical zoom compared to the main camera. But the 120-degree Ultra Wide lens on the Galaxy A9 (2018) allows you to take the picture without twisting yourself into a pretzel. At the front of the A9 is a huge 24 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

The Galaxy A9 isn't out yet, and in fact you've got a little while to wait. A fingerprint scanner is located on the back of this phone, and Samsung's logo lies right below it. Below the module is a LED flash. A 3.5mm headphone jack is included on the bottom of the device, along with this phone's loudspeaker, and a charging port.

The rear cameras are a 13MP f/2.0 main module with a 5MP depth sensor while the front facing camera is a fixed-focus 8MP shooter. In addition to Nokia 6.1 Plus, HMD has said that it will be rolling out the Android Pie update for Nokia 6.1 as well in October.

Along the sides, you'll find power and volume buttons, but no Bixby switch. It can be availed in color gradient options such as Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

So we get to the real raison d'être of the Galaxy A9: the four cameras.

Don't worry, there is still a front-facing 24mp camera, bringing the total to five. It's an excellent smartphone for all those who're looking for a decently specced mid-ranger from Samsung. Samsung's Android UI also looks considerably different compared to stock Android, so keep note of that too.

Samsung is yet to roll out Android 9.0 Pie update to its flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones and rumours suggest that Samsung would also add AI-features exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 along with the Android Pie upgrade.

True to rumours that leaked in the lead-up to the event, the A9 builds on the A7's triple rear camera system by going one better, with four rear cameras lined up vertically down its back. Samsung said the phone will be available in select markets from November. Like most Samsung flagships and premium mid-range models, the device also comes with an always-on display which can show the current time and notifications while the screen off. Coming to the pricing, it will be retailing from Euro 599 in Europe.
