Samsung Galaxy A9 is the First Quad-Camera Phone

First, there was the megapixel war. Next up: the camera count wars. Less than a month after unveiling the world’s first triple-camera smartphone in the Galaxy A7, Samsung has just announced the new Galaxy A9 as the world’s first quad-camera phone.

That’s right: there are four separate cameras on the back of the camera for capturing different types of photos.

“With four lenses, experience even more ways to unleash your creativity and capture, create and share stunning images,” Samsung says.

There’s a 24-megapixel f/1.7 main camera, a 5MP f/2.2 depth camera (for portrait mode), a 10MP f/2.4 telephoto camera (with 2x optical zoom), and an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle camera (with a 120-degree field of view). On the front of the phone is a 24-megapixel f/2 selfie camera.

Assisting the cameras is a new AI-powered Scene Optimizer that uses Scene Recognition to understand what you’re photographing and adjust your settings for an optimal capture.
