The Galaxy A9 was unveiled Thursday by Samsung, and a key feature is its four rear cameras, and a fifth in the front — which means loads more selfies.
Last month Samsung CEO DJ Koh told CNBC that the midrange smartphone was designed to appeal more to millennials.
"We are very much focusing on millennials who cannot afford the flagship," he said. "But how can I deliver meaningful innovation to our millennials?"
The answer must lie in the cameras. As The Odyssey noted, millennials are known as the selfie generation.
It is only fitting that a smartphone made specifically for this market incorporates that obsession into its design.
"As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication," Koh said in a statement. "Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation. We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9."
Each of the four rear cameras on the Galaxy A9 serves a different function, CNET noted.
The main camera, a 24-megapixel f1.7, serves as the primary shooter. Then there is the wider 8-megapixel 120-degree camera that is ideal for landscape photos — or group shots.
The 10-megapixel telephoto provides 2x optical zoom for extreme close-up shots and the 5-megapixel camera allows you to adjust your background blur with its depth sensor.
But what is a phone that does not address the issue of low-light photography?
The A9 comes with a 24-megapixel camera that combines four pixels into one for clearer 6-megapixel images, CNET noted.
