Samsung describes the Galaxy A9 as the world's first "quad-camera" phone. Do you think we could see something similar in small, compact cameras? Coming to the software, the Galaxy A9 offers Android 8.0 Oreo, and knowing Samsung, the Pie update isn't likely to roll out until 2019. The camera app will let you switch between the regular sensor to a wide angle sensor with just a tap or switch between 2X optical zoom lens and depth sensor without needing additional third-party accessories. The fourth camera at the rear will be a 5MP depth-sensing module for Live Focus, paired with an f/2.2 aperture. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue.

The Galaxy A9 will be available here soon.

The Galaxy A9 has a large 3800 mAh battery, which is bigger than those aforementioned flagships, so we should be looking at a phone with an impressive battery life.
