Samsung Electronics unveiled the “Galaxy A9,” which is the world’s first smartphone with four rear cameras, at the "A Galaxy Event" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on October 11 (local time).
The Galaxy A9 features a 24-megapixel standard lens, a telephoto lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a depth lens.
The 10-megapixel telephoto camera with optical 2x zoom allows users to capture even the smallest detail of a subject from a distance. The 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera has a 120-degree angle of view, which is similar to humans’ viewing angle. Users can capture wider panorama in one picture, and it is easier to take group pictures.
The 24-megapixel camera and the 5-megapixel depth camera allow users to use the “live focus” function and apply bokeh effects before and after taking a picture. With the artificial intelligence-based intelligent camera technology, the camera automatically takes a picture in the best color by using an appropriate picture mode.
The four cameras can absorb more light by combining pixels into a single pixel in low illuminance. The 24-megapixel front camera allows users to take a high-quality selfie even in the dark.
The Galaxy A9 will be sequentially available in the world, starting in November.
