Samsung Galaxy A9 Smartphone

Several years ago, it would have been laughable to imply that smartphone cameras might eclipse professional-grade ones. Now, however, that’s already well on its way to happening. Still, there are limitations to what a smartphone can do, photographically speaking. Samsung is looking to close that gap, however, with their Galaxy A9 smartphone.

As you can tell by looking at it, this camera looks fairly standard — with a relatively small bezel and familiar rectangular shape. It’s also available in one of three colorways (black, gradient blue, and gradient pink). But what really stands out about this phone — besides its 6.3” FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display, up to 8 gigs of RAM, up to 512 gigs of onboard storage, and fast-charging 3,800 mAh battery — is its complement of onboard cameras. You see, this is the world’s first quad camera smartphone — and each of those lenses accomplishes a different task. There’s a main 24MP camera, a 5MP depth camera (for stylized portraits and the like), a 10MP telephoto option with 2x optical zoom, and, finally, an ultra-wide 120-degree 8MP lens. Starting at $695, this might just be the ultimate camera phone.

Purchase: $695+
