While leakers seem to have got the name of the smartphone wrong - it's just called the Galaxy A9 - Samsung officially announced the device today, and the company has confirmed numerous rumors. The highlight of the smartphone is its quad rear camera setup, the company's response to Huawei's P20 Pro which comes with a tripe rear camera setup.

In the wee hours of the morning Patently Apple posted a report titled "Rumor Claims Samsung's new mid-tier A9 Smartphone will come with Four Backside Cameras". The 10 MP camera comes with telephoto lens offering 2x optical zoom. It would've been even better if there was a monochrome sensor instead of a depth sensor since Samsung can certainly pull off portrait mode shots with the main camera using the software. A 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture that adds depth to the captured images follows the main sensor. There is also a 24-megapixel sensor on the front of the A9.

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A9. Is this practical or just a marketing ploy? The Galaxy A9 (2018) has a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. The image shows the camera setup in detail along with the most minute specifications.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) bears 128GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB). Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own. Under the hood, the smartphone gets powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor bundled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
