Up until now some of these features have been provided by software, but Samsung claims the move to hardware will garner better results. And now today, Samsung has went a step ahead by announcing Samsung Galaxy A9 - world's first smartphone with a whopping four rear cameras. There appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, though some are reporting it's on the side.

With four cameras on the rear glass case, Samsung is touting this device as the ideal offering for the Instagram generation.

There's an ultra wide eight-megapixel (MP) camera at the top.

Next up, there's an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor that should improve the quality of your zoomed photographs, similar to the 2x optical zoom found on the iPhone Xs. The bottom lens is for a 5MP depth camera. On the front, it has 6.28-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution. There's also the option for 6GB or 8GB of RAM. And just in case that's not enough, you can add on up to another 512GB via microSD card.

The 3,800mAh battery charges over USB-C and Samsung continues to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9?

Samsung withheld a good deal of information when it comes to the Galaxy A9 (2018)'s release date, pricing, and availability. It's available in Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black, and Bubblegum Pink-all of which are a tad pretentious for color names but we don't judge over here. The Galaxy A9 comes with 128GB built-in flash storage.

'As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication, ' he said.

Louth hit with Orange weather WARNING
Issued at 11:00am this morning, this warning will be valid from 11:00pm tomorrow night through to 9:00am on Friday morning. An orange weather warning will be in place for all coastal counties from 10pm, and will be valid until tomorrow morning.

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A9. Needless to say, the Galaxy A9 impresses quite a lot in the specifications and features department, so Samsung is actually staying true to its word that the Korean giant will incorporate high-end features on its mid-range lineup.

Aligned vertically in the corner of the phone's body, each lens is optimised for a different type of photo, hopefully resulting in one of the most versatile camera setups around.

Exhausted of your iPhone X?

Big tech companies, like Samsung and Apple, have recently come under fire to release lower-priced devices, especially since Apple launched their premium hand-set phone, the iPhone Xs for £999.

Samsung's new Galaxy S9 upgrade ad tries to capitalize on Apple's iPhone "battery slowdown" controversy.

Whole photo galleries are being sent to contacts by Samsung Messages via SMS, some Galaxy owners report.

With the launch of the next iPhone now days away, the leaks, rumors, and analyst chatter is reaching fever pitch. What do you think of the Galaxy A9 so far?
