Samsung has gone all-out in the memory department because the highest specifications version of the newly announced smartphone features up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory, though this variant is going to be limited to certain markets.

The first-ever smartphone with four rear cameras is here.

Don't worry, there is still a front-facing 24mp camera, bringing the total to five.

The phone will sit beneath Samsung's flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9 phones released earlier this year as the best of its mid-range devices. Putting two and two together and coming up four makes us fairly positive that the leaks are legitimate.

For its size, the Galaxy A9 sports a generous 3,800mAh battery and is running Samsung's custom UI. Whether or not the quad cameras justify the price tag will remain to be seen after a more detailed review. Do you think Samsung will be able to pull it off?

The Galaxy A9 will cost between €550 and €599 ($635 and $690), according to AllAboutSamsung.

On the front, the phone has a 24-megapixel, F2.0 selfie camera.

After having launched Galaxy A7 with triple rear camera set up, Samsung on Thursday unveiled Galaxy A9 (2018) with whopping four cameras on the back. Samsung is not the first to take this route, many smartphones have offered multiple cameras including those from Huawei which featured monochrome sensors to enhance the image from the main camera and provide depth effects. Powering up the phone is, surprisingly, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 6GB RAM, and pretty sizeable 3800mAh battery.

'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, ' said Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh to mark the launch. It can be availed in color gradient options such as Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

South Korean girl group AOA demonstrate the camera capabilities of the new A9.
