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. Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets from November.

Samsung Galaxy A9 sports a 3D glass curved back available in three colour options of ‘Caviar Black’, ‘Lemonade Blue’ and ‘Bubblegum Pink’.

The second sensor is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, f/2.4 aperture and 10-megapixel resolution.
