In this day and age of leaks up the wazoo, we’re never really sure who to believe. Well, all the leaks surrounding the Pixel 3 were pretty much spot on the nose, including the massive notch on the Pixel 3 XL. And yesterday’s leak about the four camera system on Samsung’s mid-range smartphone is also true. Here is the Galaxy A9 complete with quad cameras.

Yesterday’s leak only showed us the black version of the Samsung Galaxy A9, but as you can quite plainly see here, it’ll also ship in blue and pink… though the blue reminds me a lot more of the color fade we see on the Huawei P20 Pro. But that phone only has three cameras on the back. This one has quad cameras. So, neener, neener, neener?

The quad cameras on the Galaxy A9 are notable unto themselves, but they also point toward a bigger strategy from Samsung to introduce new features on mid-range devices. Not everyone can afford a flagship, but they don’t want to settle for something rehashed and watered down either. This way, a Galaxy A9 owner can still hold something over their S9 and Note9 counterparts.

Right in line with the leak, the quad cameras consist of a 24MP main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide angle (120-degree), 10MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom, and a 5MP camera for depth-of-field effects. Bring on the bokeh!

The quad cameras are obviously the main appeal here, and they’re what will separate this phone from the pack. Inside, the specs read mostly in line with a 2018 mid-ranger, with a few pleasant surprises. There’s a Snapdragon 660 and 6GB of RAM, but you also get 128GB of storage, a microSD slot (up to 512GB more), a headphone jack, and a large-ish 3800mAh battery. The 6.3-inch display is full HD+ (2220 x 1080) and the fingerprint scanner is on the side instead of on the back.

There’s no word on US pricing at the moment, but they’ve slotted the Galaxy A9 at €599 and £549 for Europe and the UK, respectively. That works out to about $724 US. Expect the phone to drop next month.
