Samsung is not known for subtlety or finesse when it comes to their design aesthetic — but rather ostentatious excess. They have the tendency to emulate, yet enhance, the look and feel of market leaders in consumer categories ranging from smartphones to robot vacuum cleaners.
The new Galaxy A9 sits very comfortably amidst that innovative and iterative tradition. Apple’s two-camera system has served it well. Samsung is no longer satisfied with two cameras. Starting with their midrange Galaxy A9, they are introducing their first four-camera phone. If four cameras are too many for cash-strapped buyers, they are also offering the A7 model with three.
Four cameras are not even the most cameras to be found on the back of a smartphone this year. PCMag has the story.
