Samsung to launch the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) with a four-camera setup on 11 October

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) will be the first to come with a four-camera setup at the back.

Looks like smartphone companies are in a race these days to launch devices with more and more camera units on the rear. Wonder if that will help increase the camera quality any bit, but for what it's worth, Samsung seems to be on top of this game. Last week the company launched the first smartphone to come with a triple-camera setup at the back, the Galaxy A7 in South Korea. Now, the company is launching the first smartphone with a four-camera setup at the back, the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) on 11 October.

This is the 2018 version of the first Galaxy A9 Pro that was launched in India two years ago on 16 September 2016.

Up front, the device has a 24 MP Sony IMX 576 sensor for selfies.

The smartphone is expected to feature a 6.28-inch Full HD Plus AMOLED display and be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. In terms of storage, the device might come in a 4 GB or 6 GB RAM along with 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage.
