The story of the Galaxy A9 (2018) starts and arguably ends with the four cameras around back.

When is the Samsung Galaxy live stream?

Speaking at the event, DJ Koh, president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung Electronics, said that with the Galaxy A7 and A9, the company was "showcasing Samsung's commitment to serve everyone".

Technical glitch hobbles Hubble Space Telescope
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope entered safe mode Friday evening after one of its three active gyroscopes failed. The failed gyroscope has already been showing end-of-life behavior for about a year, NASA said on its website.

You do lose out on a feature or two, such as wireless charging and the main camera only featuring one aperture.

Photography fans may be interested to know that the A9 offers *deep breath* a 24-megapixel camera with a regular f / 1.7 lens, an 8-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 wide-angle lens (up to 120˚ field-of-view), a 10-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 telephoto lens for optical zoom functionality and a 5-megapixel camera with f / 2.2 depth lens.

The horizontal camera system has a main 24-megapixel f/1.7 main camera at the top of the alignment, which is the sensor that will be used for generic images and low-light shots. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung's Experience UX. A fingerprint scanner is present on the backside of the phone. It's not entirely clear what this actually means in practice but a good camera is certainly necessary to capture decent images to upload to the Insta and it seems Samsung believes four cameras is the way forward for this device. The front camera of the phone supports face unlock feature. Two of which - Bubblegum Pink and Lemonade Blue - feature a fun colour gradient, while the third - Caviar Black - is a dead serious solid black.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is set to go on sale in November this year starting at £549 - retailing over £200 less than the Galaxy S9.
