Samsung Unveils Midrange Galaxy A9 With Four Cameras

How many cameras are enough on a smartphone? The LG V40 ThinQ has five, but for those who need something a little more affordable, Samsung’s new midrange Galaxy A9 has four rear cameras.

The South Korean tech giant stuck a 24MP f/1.7 main camera, a 10MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, a 120-degree 8MP f/2.8 ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth on the back of its latest smartphone.

In an interview with CNBC, Samsung Mobile CEO Koh Dong-Jin said that “In the past, I brought the new technology and differentiation to the flagship model and then moved to the mid-end. But I have changed my strategy from this year to bring technology and differentiation points starting from the mid-end.”

Beyond the camera, the smartphone has a 3,800mAh battery, a fast-charging USB-C port, 128GB of storage (that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card), and runs Android 8.0. There’s also the option for 6GB or 8GB of RAM. As Android Authority reports, the phone runs a Snapdragon 660 and includes a headphone jack for old’s time sake.
