It's not surprising that South Korean giant Samsung is working on a new mid-range phone with quad cameras. The device is in rumors from the past few weeks and recently the company confirmed the arrival of a new phone with “4x fun” on Oct 11. Later on, all leaks and rumors indicate that Samsung's first quad camera phone will be announced as Galaxy A9 2018. Despite the fact, the device announcement is just 24 hours away but that's doesn't stop rumors mill from producing new details. The A9 2018 allegedly appears at Geekbench ahead of its official announcement.
The device model number is SM-A9200. Under the hood, the device is powered up by the Qualcomm's Octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6 Gigs of RAM. As per Geekbench listing, the device scores 1609 points on single-core test whereas on multi-core test the device achieves 5844 points. Unfortunately, the device is pre-installed with Android Oreo straight out of the box when the latest Android is out for almost two months.
From what we heard so far the Galaxy A9's quad rear cameras setup will be quite interesting. The primary sensor will be a 24MP module with f/1.7 aperture and Optical image stabilization, the secondary sensor will be a depth-sensing 5MP module with f/2.2 aperture, the third sensor will be a wide-angle 8MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture.
