We have been hearing about a Samsung event called “4x Fun” for quite some time. Although we expected a smartphone with four cameras, we were quite impressed to learn that all of the sensors are actually on the back, lined in a vertical setup. The phone will be called Galaxy A9 (2018) and will be launched in Kuala Lumpur later today, and you can follow the event live.
The new phone, also rumored to be called Galaxy A9s, will have a Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The screen is likely to be AMOLED with 18:9 ratio, similar to the Galaxy A8 (2018) and the Galaxy A8+ (2018) with flat panel and tiny bezels on the side.
The four cameras will all have a different purpose – there’ll be an ultra-wide snapper, a telephoto lens, the main camera is 24 MP f/1.7, and there is also a 5 MP shooter for good measure. Oh yeah, and the selfie snapper is also expected to be 24 MP, but with a f/2.0 aperture. Tune in at 5 PM MYT / 11 AM CEST to follow the event and to learn everything about the devices, including pricing and availability.
