With Samsung planning to host a Galaxy event on 11th October, there already were speculations about a smartphone with four cameras to launch at the event. But now a new leak suggests that the smartphones could be the Galaxy A9 Star Pro and Galaxy A7 (2018). Apart from the cameras, the phone is likely to come with waterproof and dustproof certification. Considering the innovations happening in the mobile industry with slide-out cameras and under-display fingerprint scanner, seems like Samsung wants to hit the market with something different in the camera department. Note that Nokia too is working on something similar with the cameras on its upcoming Nokia 9 smartphone.

According to the leaks, the Galaxy A7 2018 will come featuring a triple camera set up at the back that would be placed vertically, whereas the Galaxy A9 Star Pro would sport four cameras at the back. In case this happens, the Galaxy A9 Star Pro would be the first of its kind to come with a quad camera set up placed at the back.
A tweet by SamsungMobile.News points out that the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Pro 2018 will feature an SM-A920 model number that has four cameras at the back with a flash right beneath the camera setup and a fingerprint sensor in the middle. The handset will come in colour options of Black, Blue Gradient and Pink Gradient. Other rumours suggest the phone to come with a dedicated Bixby button and will be priced at EUR 500, making it Rs. 42, 600 approx.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) on the other hand will come with a triple camera setup, aligned vertically similar to Galaxy A9 Star Pro, with a flash right under it. The tipster suggests that the phone would be powered by a Snapdragon 710 or Snapdragon 660 processor.
Well, its hard to say if this seems to accurate and will have to wait till the devices actually get launched on 11th October.
