But three cameras might not be enough for Samsung, as the company just launched a new phone that has four cameras on the back.

With four cameras on the rear glass case, Samsung is touting this device as the ideal offering for the Instagram generation. Sitting at the top is an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.

Samsung describes the Galaxy A9 as the world's first "quad-camera" phone. The flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB) is available at a discounted price of Rs 42,990 instead of Rs 62,500 during the festive season sale.

The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs.

Security-wise, the device comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back as well as face recognition. The handsets are powered by Samsung's own Exynos 9810 processor and run Android 8.
