The company today announced the Galaxy A9, the world's first "quad-camera" phone.

SAMSUNG'S CLEARLY GOT A CHUBBY for smartphone cameras given it's revealed the Galaxy A9 with four cameras stuck on to its backside. Underneath, Samsung has added the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset to the smartphone, which works in tandem with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. It comes with 128GB storage which can be further expanded up to 512GB.

It will remain to be seen as to whether the Galaxy A9 Star Pro will be making its way to our shores but we will be reaching out to Samsung Australia after the launch for local availability and pricing. Samsung's been working on next-generation displays for the past several years, having brought devices with curved displays to market since 2013 and "bended" displays (like the Galaxy S9 with its Infinity Display edges) to market since 2014. Customers can pick up the device in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink.

The latest addition to the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones comes hot off the heels of the Galaxy A7 announced just weeks ago. Another camera offers an ultra-wide lens for wide shots. AI Scene Recognition is baked in to identify the subject and adjust settings accordingly for the best photo. It has a 3,800mAh battery and runs Android 8.0. Connectivity options include Cat.9 LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C port. Although there's no confirmation from Samsung, reliable tipster Evan Blass has given some details on the camera features of the handset just before the launch.
