When Huawei introduced the P20 Pro with a triple-camera system, it was expected to be the new standard for smartphone photography. Samsung apparently had other plans because its upcoming Galaxy A9 smartphone won't come with just three cameras, it'll come with four.
The confirmation comes from noted leaker Evan Blass who published the first image of the four-camera system that Samsung will reportedly include in the Galaxy A9.
According to the image, the four-camera system will stand vertically and consist of a 24MP main shooter, an 8MP wide-angle shooter with a 120-degree field of view, a 10MP telephoto shooter with 2x optical zoom and a 5MP depth camera. The first three cameras are similar to the triple camera systems we've seen from the Huawei P20 Pro and LG V40, but the 5MP depth camera is the new inclusion here.
Other details that can be extracted from the leaked image is that the Galaxy A9 will sport a glass back and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Previous reports have suggested the A9 will come with a 6.38-inch display, Snapdragon 660 processor and 3,720mAh battery. It'll still fall in the category of mid-range devices even though it'll include the sophisticated new camera system.
Whether this will become the norm for future Samsung devices remains to be seen, but we're very curious to see how sophisticated the new system is. We'll find out when Samsung announces the A9 later this month.
