New Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) video shows all four camera sensors in action

Back on October 11th, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A9 (2018). While a mid-range phone, it does sport a quad-camera setup in the back. Also on the 11th, Samsung released an official television commercial for the Galaxy A9 (2018), which of course focused on the four sensors on the rear of the handset. There is an 8MP Ultra Wide Camera, a 10MP Telephoto Camera, a 24MP Primary Camera, and a 5MP Depth Camera.

The phone is expected to launch on November 15th in select markets, which does not include the U.S. With its release two weeks away, Samsung today released a new video featuring the Galaxy A9 (2018), the world's first quad camera smartphone. The video shows what kind of a difference the 120-degree field-of-view ultra wide-angle lens makes on a photo. Images taken with the other three sensors are also displayed.

Even with the Galaxy A9 (2018) not scheduled to be made available in the U.S., you just might want to take a peak at the video to see what the next generation of smartphone cameras might offer. You'll find the clip embedded right at the top of this article.

When you can't make 2 great camera and you have to add 4 mediocre ones for marketing purposes. Samsung, the new Apple.

iPhones actually have great sensors. The XS Max's score on DXOMark is second only to the Huawei P20 Pro.

So can expect the S10 to have an improved version of these cameras.

Probably.. They already did the software processing part in this phone. All they need is use better camera sensor and newer ISP.

It’s great how multiple camera’s could be used to take a great shots despite having small sensors.
