Samsung has announced its new Galaxy A9 handset, which includes a quadruple camera system capable of nearly every smartphone photography trick in the book.

What do you think about the new Galaxy A9's price? The phone packs 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card.

But, the most eye-catching thing about this smartphone has to be its ridiculously long camera module which houses all four sensors, each with its own goal.

The quad camera definitely looks interesting, but we'll have to wait and see how useful it is in real-world usage conditions.

The Galaxy A9 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen that Samsung is branding an "Immersive Display", which as far as we can tell is marketing term to differentiate between the dual-curved "Infinity Display" technology found on the flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9. The third camera is the main 24MP sensor with a wide f/1.7 aperture, while the fourth camera is a 5MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture.

The phones mirror an industry trend toward lusher, bigger screens and add twists on the camera for better pictures. The Pixel line-up is known for its AI-enabled camera performance and Pixel 3 and 3 XL take it a bit further.

The primary camera is a 24MP offering which is the default option in auto mode, and the one which will give you best low light performance. A 3,800mAh battery powers the phone. Oh and of course there's also a 20MP selfie shooter up front with an f/2.0 aperture lens.

As for a release date, the Galaxy A9 will be releasing in select markets sometime in November.

Other features include a fingerprint scanner on the back, face unlocking in front, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC for Samsung Pay (doesn't work with MST). It's not entirely clear what this actually means in practice but a good camera is certainly necessary to capture decent images to upload to the Insta and it seems Samsung believes four cameras is the way forward for this device.

It will come in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.
