The four lenses comprising the Galaxy A9's camera system includes 24MP PDAF, 8MP ultrawide, 10MP telephoto, and 5MP depth sensors.

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation".
