New quadruple-camera Samsung Galaxy A9 is designed for Instagram fans

Samsung Galaxy A9 gets leaked Geekbench results

Let's just hope that Samsung doesn't launch a Galaxy A11 phone with five cameras on the back next month.

There's not long to go now before the official unveiling of the Galaxy A9 - what else do you reckon it'll have in store?

Given Huawei and LG have both whacked a trio of cameras on their flagship phones' backsides, Samsung seems to have gone one better, but we'd have to give the cameras a test before we can see if they are anything more than a marketing gimmick. Coming to the cameras, the Galaxy A9 (2018) sports a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.

It is expected that Samsung will reveal the device at its upcoming Galaxy phone launch event on October 11th (later tonight Australian time), which, according to the invites sent out, did hint and promise "4X fun". Powering up the phone is, surprisingly, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 6GB RAM, and pretty sizeable 3800mAh battery. Do note that you can expand that existing storage up to 512GB via microSD card slot but we are certain that it will take up a single SIM card slot.

On the front Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 has an 8-megapixel camera.

To recap, this smartphone features a 6-inch Super AMOLED display pushing a Full HD+ resolution of 2220×1080 pixels.

How much those four cameras are worth it to you will likely come down in price.
