Samsung plans to bring 4 cameras to its Galaxy A9 Star Pro

As well as a bunch of snappers on the back, it's also got a Super AMOLED 6.3-inch screen (no notch), 128GB of storage space and a fairly hefty 3,800mAh battery.

The Galaxy A9 is the latest mid-range smartphone to come from the Korean technology firm and it features the world's first quadruple camera system.

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation".

The Samsung Galaxy A9 will be released in selected markets from November 2018. Interestingly, there is only one front facing 8MP camera.

This new photography feature includes a main 24-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel lens for depth effects.

Inside the Galaxy A9 you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM (varies depending upon operator/region). Dubbed as the Samsung Galaxy A9, it comes with a four-lens rear camera setup which offers a total of 47MP.

The new phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, mobile payment capabilities and expandable storage of up to 512GB - all features common on high-end smartphones. If the Galaxy A7 (2018) is anything to go by, having access to an ultra-wide camera and a zoom lens on a single phone should make the Galaxy A9 quite attractive. Theoretically, Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 will be capable of delivering photos that will cover more real estate, have clarity and sharpness and bokeh mode.

The phone will sit beneath Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9 phones released earlier this year as the best of its mid-range devices. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9? Connectivity options on the handset include Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port. It can be availed in color gradient options such as Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.
