Samsung hints Galaxy A phone with four cameras is coming next month

Samsung hints Galaxy A phone with four cameras is coming next month

It's a clear effort from Samsung to take away some of the shine from its rivals, showing a purple-blue gradient we can remember seeing in the Huawei models.

The South Korean tech giant is sending out an invitation to the said event, which will be available to watch via live stream on the company's website. The invite boldly states "4X Fun" which could either mean a Galaxy phone with four cameras or a camera that supports 4x optical zoom.

Samsung has a habit of trying to reignite sales for its flagship smartphones by launching new color options.

According to CNET, there are several possibilities for the Samsung Galaxy device scheduled to be launched at next month's event, including the rumored phone with four cameras that was first reported on in July.

Amazon is now discounting the Samsung DeX Pad to just $67.80, which is a pretty good price for this pad, seeing as this is typically priced at $99 and was only announced earlier this year. On Thursday 11 October, Samsung will reveal a new Galaxy device (singular) which offers "4x fun", headlines the invite graphic. Samsung already launched the Note 9 to cap off its premium lineup, and unless the fabled folding phone actually makes its debut, that should be it for 2018 Galaxy flagships. The company recently started seeding Android Oreo update to a Galaxy J5 Prime, a mid-range smartphone it launched around two years back. Past rumours have also indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone packs 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage which can be expanded further by adding a microSD card. It is also expected to have an upgraded dual rear camera setup and a larger battery than what was found on the Galaxy Note 8. One shooter has the telephoto lens and also the various other has variable aperture lens.
