Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy A9 model which would be the first smartphone in the world with four cameras on its back. The company announced the new device earlier and also revealed that the handset would come out in one variant with 128 Gb of internal storage.
Among other features, Samsung Galaxy A9 would boast the Bixby virtual assistant, payment service Samsung Pay and fitness tracker Samsung Health.
“As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication,” stated DJ Koh, president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications at Samsung Electronics. “Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we’re introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation,” he added.
Also, earlier this year Koh told CNBC that Samsung is planning on including cutting-edge technologies in its mid-range smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy A9 Model To Be The First Smartphone With Four Cameras On Its Back
According to the recent news on Galaxy A9, the device would be the first smartphone with four cameras on its back in the world. As reported, the Galaxy A9 handset would boast one 24-megapixel sensor with autofocus, a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom for detailed close-ups, an ultra-wide lens, and a depth lens that permits users to manage the photo’s focus and field.
Accordingly, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 is the updated version of the Galaxy A7 device which was the first from Samsung to pack triple-camera system on its back.
On the other hand, Samsung joins the competition of enhanced cameras systems launched by Huawei and LG. Now, however, Samsung, along with Apple, its biggest rival in the smartphone industry, is also facing the competition coming from China, such as Xiaomi and ZTE, both struggling to release more performant devices.
