Samsung has said it is targeting new features for its mid-range smartphones to help boost flagging sales. The latest example of this is the forthcoming Galaxy A9 Star Pro that is said to sport four rear cameras, twice as many as its current flagship devices.

With the sales of the Galaxy S9 series lagging behind expectations, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh recently vowed that it has a strategy to help turn things around. Rather than waiting to debut new features on its high-end phones first and then trickle them down to mid-range devices, the company is going for a more aggressive approach. We saw this plan come to fruition last week with the launch of the Galaxy A7 (2018), which is the first Samsung smartphone to feature triple-rear cameras.

Now, fresh reports have surfaced pointing to another new mid-range smartphone from Samsung set to push the boundaries of smartphone photography further again — at least at the expected price point. According to the folks at All About Samsung, the forthcoming Galaxy A9 Star/Pro will ramp things up to four rear cameras. These are said to include an 8MP wide-angle camera with a 120-degree FoV, a 24MP main camera, a 10MP zoom camera and a 5MP zoom camera. The combination could offer some interesting depth of field effects, among others.

The render of the Galaxy A9 Star/Pro included with the article is based on a Samsung teaser for the October launch, which states, “4x fun.” It includes a 6.28 AMOLED display with a Full HD+ Infinity display, which is also a likely choice for the device. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 that is a chip favored in the segment. It should also be sufficient to drive the optical performance that the A9 Star/Pro promises to deliver. Just when dual-cameras started to become the norm, the start of the camera module wars appears to be upon us!

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
