Say hello to the Samsung Galaxy A9.
The four cameras are lined up in a row along one side of the phone (unlike Lenovo’s upcoming quad-camera phone, which is expected to arrange them in a square).
Here’s a run-down of the features for each camera
- 24MP primary camera with an F/1.7 aperture
- 10MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and F/2.4 aperture
- 8MP wide angle camera with 120 degree field of view and F/2.4 aperture
- 5MP depth camera with “live focus” and F/2.2 aperture
In other words, the cameras can be used together to let you use lossless optical zoom to get closer to the action without moving your phone, take shots where the subject remains in focus while the background is blurred, capture wide-angle shots, or just shoot standard photographs.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced the phone yet, but the company is holding an event in Malaysia tomorrow, so confirmation of the camera setup could be hours away.
Specs haven’t been revealed yet, but rumor has it that we can expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor.
