The way smartphone cameras have been developing over the last few years, it may not come as a surprise that we now have a phone with four cameras. Trying to stand out in the fierce competition between the manufacturers is tough, but Samsung thinks they might just be able to make enough of a statement with their latest announcement, the Samsung Galaxy A9.
In his latest video, Arun Maini, a YouTuber going under the name of Mrwhosetheboss, gives a brief yet detailed rundown of the Galaxy A9. Four cameras in a smartphone may seem a little ridiculous, but Maini describes how it makes sense when you actually use the phone. The A9 allows for three perspectives or focal lengths using the four cameras, which I think will probably be very useful. As far as I know, all smartphones rely on fixed prime lenses, and this creates a few challenges. The great thing is that with multiple cameras, manufacturers can offer far more versatility without compromising the overall size and shape of the phone. The way that smartphones are being developed and how cameras are improving is quite incredible. I very optimistic about how smartphones will impact the photography community. Considering the price point of the A9, I think it could become quite a popular smartphone with very powerful photography-related features.
