The Samsung Galaxy A9 2018 has been officially unveiled and it boasts an intriguing world's first - four rear cameras. Smartphones are processing more and more cameras in the back of their devices.

Then there's a telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom and ultra wide 120 degree 8-megapixel camera which allows users to get more detail packed into their pictures.

Speaking about the camera system during the Galaxy A9 launch event, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh said: "Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation". We do know that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will launch in Europe and the U.K. The U.S.is unlikely to be a launch market. The device has no less than four cameras on the back.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a dual SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM.

Russian officials said all manned space flight missions would be suspended until investigators figure out what went wrong . But the landing engines and parachute system are said to have done their job as normal, getting them back alive to Earth.

This comes after Samsung recently released a firmware update for its older flagship Galaxy S8 to add exclusive camera features which are available only in the latest Galaxy S9, S9+ and Galaxy Note 9.

The Galaxy A9 boasts a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display that has a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels.

The phone will come with plenty of storage, at 128GB (6GB RAM) and up to 512GB of expandable memory. While the front side houses a single 24MP selfie camera, the backside is where all the magic takes place. It's available in Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black, and Bubblegum Pink-all of which are a tad pretentious for color names but we don't judge over here. This one also comes with an 8MP front snapper. Those include the Snapdragon 710 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM, and a 3,800 mAh battery. The company's United Kingdom branch did tell us that the device will hit the United Kingdom in November, and that it will cost £549, but we do not have any specific info for other markets. This smartphone packs all the modern connectivity and sensors you might expect including LTE Cat.9, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz), VHT80 MIMO, Bluetooth v 5.0, ANT+, USB Type-C, NFC (Samsung Pay compatible), Location (GPS, Galileo, Glonass, BeiDou), Accelerometer, Fingerprint Sensor, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Hall Sensor, Proximity Sensor, RGB Light Sensor.
