So, while Google is sticking to its single camera guns for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, it’s obvious enough that almost everyone else is moving in the other direction. Dual camera systems on smartphones are practically the norm. The Huawei P20 Pro and LG V40 ThinQ both feature triple camera systems on the back, the latter of which comes with a dual camera system on the front too. But an upcoming Samsung Galaxy A device could be outdoing them all with a four camera system on the back. That’s right. Four freaking cameras.

The leaked image and info comes by way of Evan @evleaks Blass on Twitter. Based on this leak, the new Samsung smartphone will have a four camera system for all the smartphone photography nerds. And each of these serve a distinct function.

As you can see, the four camera system consists of:

  • Ultra Wide Camera: 8MP, F2.4, 120-degree FOV
  • Telephoto Camera: 10MP, F2.4, 2x optical zoom
  • Main Camera: 24MP, F1.7, clear and bright
  • Depth Camera: 5MP, F2.2, Live Focus

While we’re shown that the ultra wide camera offers a 120-degree field of view, we’re not told what the FOV is for the main camera or for the telephoto. Presumably, the depth camera isn’t actually used for taking pictures and, as indicated, is there to enable features like live focus. And then below the four camera system is the flash. You’ll also notice the fingerprint sensor shaped as a rounded square.

It appears that Samsung will be hosting “A Galaxy Event” tomorrow at 5am ET, 2am PT. Rumors say that this new phone will be called the Samsung Galaxy A9, following in the footsteps of the current Galaxy A8.

As a mid-tier device, the Samsung Galaxy A9 will reportedly rock a Snapdragon 660, 6.38-inch display, and a 3,720 mAh battery. Does this mean a more advanced version of this four camera system will appear in next year’s main line Samsung Galaxy S10?
