Official image of the world's first four-camera phone leaks, now where's the monochrome, Samsung?
The Galaxy A9s is shaping up to be the world's first with four cameras. After years of skipping the dual-camera trend, Samsung will apparently go straight ahead of the pack by packing all Four Horsemen of sensor/lens combos that others have been using, into one single device.
The top shelf of the vertical quadro-camera placement is reserved for the 8MP Ultra Wide-angle camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 120 degrees field of view. Immediately after comes the 2x zoom telephoto camera with 10MP resolution and the same aperture.
A 24MP main sensor will take care of the low-light shots with a wider, f/1.7 aperture, while below the deck is the 5MP sensor for extra depth measurement for those Live Focus and portrait shots. That leaves nothing for the brand that will first introduce a penta-camera phone, unless it slaps an extra monochrome sensor there as well.
Shhht, we'll stop giving them ideas now, but can't wait to test what is shaping up to be the most versatile camera setup after the one on the LG V40.
