It seems that companies are in a race to launch the phone with more camera, a leak suggested that Nokia is planning to launch the phone with 5 cameras and now Samsung came up with four camera smartphone, the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018).
Wonder if that will help increase the camera quality any bit, but for what it’s worth, Samsung seems to be on top of this game. Last week the company launched the first smartphone to come with a triple-camera setup at the back, the Galaxy A7 in South Korea. Now, the company is launching the first smartphone with a four-camera setup at the back, the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) on 11 October.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) was launched at the “4x Fun” event in Kuala Lumpur. It is the second smartphone in succession from Samsung to feature more than two cameras and is the first smartphone in the world to have four cameras. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) has three cameras.
The phone sports a 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2220×1080. Powering the device is an unnamed octa-core processor with four performance cores running at 2.2GHz and other four running at 1.8GHz. The phone comes in two RAM variants of 6GB and 8GB with a single internal storage option of 128GB that can be expanded up to 512GB via a MicroSD card. The device runs Android Oreo 8.0 and is backed by a 3,800mAh battery.
The smartphone, as mentioned earlier, has four cameras. They are present in a vertical formation at the back of the device. The setup consists of a regular “primary camera” with a 24MP sensor and a “secondary” camera with 5MP depth sensor on top of which lie the telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and ultra-wide camera with 120-degrees field-of-view.
