Samsung unveils Galaxy A9 with 4-rear camera, in India next month

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

But three cameras might not be enough for Samsung, as the company just launched a new phone that has four cameras on the back. 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 rear cameras are arranged vertically.

The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. But the fourth lens is a dedicated "depth" camera created to give you the adjustable background blur. Additionally, it features a 10MP sensor with a f/2.4 telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom and there's also a 5MP depth-sensing camera with f/2.2 aperture. The Galaxy A9 will come in Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink gradient color options, as well as a more classic Caviar Black.

No India price or availability in India has been announced yet.

Samsung welcomes the Galaxy A9 to the line-up. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? The display isn't going to be as good as the Quad-HD+ Super AMOLED panel on the Note 9 but is better than most of the mid-range phones out there in the market right now.

Sudden jump in United States interest rates prompts Wall Street stock plunge
The benchmark USA stock index hadn't suffered a five-day losing streak since November 2016, just before the presidential election. The Nasdaq composite , which has a high concentration of technology companies, had its biggest loss in more than two years.

Time will tell if a four-lens camera like the A9 can beat the performance of the single-lens camera on the Pixel 3.

Samsung also released today its first television commercial for the device, showing how the owner of another smartphone needs to bend backward like Gumby to capture the image of a wide building. In terms of design, the Galaxy A9 looks similar to the Galaxy A7 (2018).

The company has revealed that Galaxy A9 offers 128GB of internal storage which can be further expanded to 512GB. The high-end Glaxy A9 is equipped with some other exciting features such as big display, powerful SoC and a large battery. Another report mentioned the camera placement of the new smartphone was leaked.

At the front, the Galaxy A9 2018 handles selfies with a massive 24MP f/2.0 sensor, which also benefits from Samsung's camera features.
