We guessed it might be referring to a 4x rear camera array equipped device, and that is indeed what was revealed in Kuala Lumpur earlier today as the Samsung Galaxy A9 was launched.

The Korean company's new Galaxy A9 device is aimed at the "Instagram generation", Samsung said on Thursday, and will go on sale in the United Kingdom in November, starting at £549.

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. Apparently, the four-camera Samsung will feature a main sensor of 24MP, with F1.7, capable of great low-light performance.

Samsung recently confirmed that it will be focusing more on the mid-range smartphone line up and will bring some features that are yet to debut in the flagship Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series.

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). In terms of storage, the phone will have an internal storage capacity of 128GB, which can be expanded via microSD by an additional 512GB. 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. It will be especially interesting to compare the A9's camera against the A7 and the upcoming Galaxy S10.

The new module is the 10MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 lens.

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A9 with a rear camera system comprised of four sensors. It's an excellent smartphone for all those who're looking for a decently specced mid-ranger from Samsung.

There's a rear fingerprint scanner too, plus a headphone jack and USB-C port on the base of the A9.

There's a trio of colours with silly names to choose from as well: Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black, and Bubblegum Pink. Samsung did not opt for a notched display on the A9 (2018) which means the South Korean company is yet to launch a smartphone with a notch. Coming to the pricing, it will be retailing from Euro 599 in Europe.
