Samsung recently tweeted an invite for its upcoming event that took the netizens by storm. In its tweet, Samsung highlighted the phrase “4x the fun”, which allegedly refers to a quadruple camera phone.
Now that the teaser is out, we can clearly see that credible Samsung leakers have been pointing in this direction for a while now.
Twitter handle @UniverseIce, which is a reliable source for Samsung leaks, confirms that all of these 4 cameras will be on the rear (he first tweeted about this phone in late July).

Another instagram account with handle @Allaboutsamsung, has put out concept images of an upcoming Samsung’s A series phone with four rear cameras. It is worth mentioning that, Samsung could name the upcoming phone as Galaxy A9 (2019) instead of the Galaxy A9 Pro.

Four cameras on a mid-range phone also fall in line with Samsung CEO DJ Koh’s recent statement. “In the past, I brought the new technology and differentiation to the flagship model and then moved to the mid-end. But I have changed my strategy from this year to bring technology and differentiation points starting from the mid-end,” Koh told CNBC in an exclusive interview.
Samsung isn’t the only one stuffing cameras on their phones. The LG V40 ThinQ that will go official on October 3 will have a total of 5 cameras (3 on the back, 2 up front) and HMD Global’s alleged flagship Nokia 9 reportedly flaunts a Penta-camera setup on its back!
