Samsung is expanding their multi-rear-camera family with the unveiling of a mid-tier four-rear camera Galaxy A9, the world’s first quad camera smartphone.

The announcement comes shortly after the quad-camera feature was leaked by Evan Blass and AllAboutSamsung.

The rear quad camera feature is surprising considering Samsung only released another mid-tier handset with three rear cameras, the Galaxy A7, last month.
