Samsung launches phones with quad, triple cameras

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7 three weeks ago, with the phone becoming the first from the South Korean manufacturer to feature three cameras at the back. Last week, a report claimed that Samsung was working on a phone with four cameras, and all of them on the back. Another camera offers an ultra-wide lens for wide shots.

Let's start with the snapper specs: the rear array comprises a 24MP f/1.7 aperture lens, a 10MP f/2.4 2x telephoto lens, an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth sensing.

There's another new Samsung Galaxy phone trying to grab your attention and this one comes with a very unique feature. The glass-bodied phone (no wireless charging though, sadly) is available in your choice of Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue or Bubblegum Pink - the latter two of which take a leaf out of Huawei's book with some really stunning gradient finishes.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 will be available in the United Kingdom for £549 (~$724) in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink starting in November 2018. Prices are yet to be announced and models and prices will vary in different global market.

With that being said, for selfies and video calls, you get a 24 MP single camera on the front having f/2.0 aperture. Those four rear cameras are the real star here, representing the first time any smartphone has packed four lenses in one spot.

Connecitivity-wise, the Galaxy A9 2018 comes with a USB Type-C port and, to our surprise yet again, a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The cameras are also aligned on the left side of the phone, similar to that of the new Apple iPhone iPhone XS - but definitely much bigger.

The Galaxy A9 will be available here soon.

Moving on to the main attraction, the rear of this smartphone features four camera sensors round the back, as you can see in the pictures.

All in all, the camera hardware on the A9 (2018) is impressive. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience skin on top.
