On 11 October Samsung is live-streaming a special event for a new phone that it says offers 4x fun, and we think this could be the Galaxy A9. While dual cameras have become commonplace in smartphones these days - even in the mid-range market - some manufacturers like Huawei and LG are creeping into triple-camera territory.

Ahead of the official announcement in Kuala Lumpur this afternoon, reliable leakster Evan Blass has shared an official image of the handset.

The Galaxy A9 Star Pro will come with four camera sensors on its back, one sensor more than that of the Galaxy A7 (2018).

As for how all of these cameras will work, we're expecting a 120-degree wide-angle lens, 2x optical zoom one, a 24MP main shooter, and a depth sensor that should help for portrait shots.

BBC News disrupted by software glitch
A spokesperson for the BBC said: "Due to a technical issue we're now running recorded programming on our live news channels". BBC News is at stake!" And later he added: "Policeman Josh has saved the day!" The BBC website was unaffected by the issue.

As was hinted at in previous specs rumors, it's thought that the Samsung Galaxy A9 will likely feature four camera lenses lined up in a vertical array, with each camera offering a different kind of photographic functionality.

Samsung looks set to include a 24-megapixel primary camera with f/1.7, coupled with an ultra-wide 8-megapixel camera with f / 2.4 and a 120˚ field-of-view.

The leaked image shows the LED flash located beneath the elongated, quadruple camera, with a square fingerprint scanner found in the middle of the rear case. Our guess is it is a Bixby button.
