So three cameras on the back of a phone doesn't cut it anymore. After all, it's been nearly seven months since the first phone with a triple camera setup was released. Move over, Huawei P20 Pro. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) has four cameras on the back. The handset was unveiled today by Samsung, and we can tell you that on the rear of the device you'll find an 8MP Ultra Wide Camera, a 10MP Telephoto Camera, a 24MP Primary Camera, and a 5MP Depth Camera.
Samsung also released today its first television commercial for the device, showing how the owner of another smartphone needs to bend backward like Gumby to capture the image of a wide building. But the 120-degree Ultra Wide lens on the Galaxy A9 (2018) allows you to take the picture without twisting yourself into a pretzel. The 10MP Telephoto lens allows you to get close, and even closer to your subject. And with the 5MP Depth Camera, you can make the background of a portrait look sharp, or fuzzy. The 60-second spot shows plenty of images that call to mind the number four such as four umbrellas and four lifesavers. Even the song in the background works perfectly with the ad.
Now for those in the states, we have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you won't have to worry about this ad interrupting your favorite television shows like Manifest, Impractical Jokers and The Good Doctor. But that's only because we don't expect to see the Samsung A9 (2018) released in the U.S.
