Samsung Launching World’s First Quad-Camera Phone.

Samsung Launching World's First Quad-Camera Phone.

Earlier this month we saw a Samsung teaser, promising “4x fun”, without revealing much about the upcoming device. A smartphone with four cameras was an obvious assumption, but we though it would be a case of two on the back and two on the front, or a Galaxy A7 (2018)-like one/three split. Yet, according to a German source, we are in for a proper surprise.

The guys behind All About Samsung claim that it will be called Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro and will have four cameras on the back and a 24 MP selfie snapper. They even released a concept render, showing a vertical setup. Mind you, the images are not official ones, so slight differences from the final product are to be expected.

The phone is expected to have 8 MP wide-angle camera with 120-degree field of view, a 24 MP main camera, 10 MP telephoto lens, another 5 MP telephoto lens, while the selfie shooter will have a Sony IMX576 sensor.

The article also says the A9 Star Pro will have 6.28” AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and Snapdragon 660 chipset. The battery is said to have 3,720 mAh capacity, but strangely enough, no fast-charging support.

If the rumor about a quadruple camera setup is true, the “4x” moniker in the poster might mean lossless 4x optical zoom, which would be a first for a modern smartphone (no offense, Galaxy Camera) and a step ahead of the 3x zoom Huawei offers with the P20 Pro. The unveiling is on October 11 and we can’t wait to see what that’s about.
