Many people assumed this meant this would be the rumoured phone with four rear camera camera lenses, and based on comments by Samsung's DJ Koh it was likely that it would be the newest device to hit the mid-range Galaxy A line. However, there are rumours that the South Korean giant plans to launch Galaxy A9 Pro. We also see a square-shaped fingerprint reader in the center of the phone.

The handset will be unveiled during a livestream of the company's A Galaxy Event on 11 October and all the clues point to the first four-camera smartphone - five if you count the front-facing snapper too. The second is much like the first but with dual-rear cameras.

Diogo Dalot made his debut for the Red Devils in the 3-0 win over Young Boys on Wednesday evening and received a lot plaudits. I think this is more the influence of the moment.

However, the phone may not be in the conventional "flip phone" format that we all know.

A couple of weeks ago Samsung started teasing us with the announcement of a new phone, promising "4x fun". Galaxy J6+ is equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage while Galaxy J4+ comes with 2GB+32GB configuration. The bottom camera has an 8MP (F2.4) Ultra Wide lens offering up to 120 degrees, capturing unrestricted wide-angle photos. The hardware basis was the OCTA-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 660.

Now people buy Galaxy smartphones because they have curved edges nearly as if to say "this looks like it was hard to do, it must be better". On the front, there will be a 24 MP Sony IMX 576 camera. As a successor to the Galaxy A7 (2017) that arrived in the country in March past year, the new Galaxy A7 (2018) also features a 24-megapixel sensor in the front that also features Selfie Focus and Pro Lighting Mode. It also looks like each colourway will include a black border around the screen, rather than the wraparound colours of the previous A7. The leak claims that the smartphone will be offered in three colors: Black, Blue Gradient and Pink Gradient. The new smartphones sport Samsung's signature True HD+ Infinity design that gives users almost 15 per cent more display area without increasing the overall size of the device.

The same DJ Koh suggested the mid-range phones would usually get those new features after the flagship phones. Samsung is so far the only other major smartphone maker to bring three lenses into its main shooter.
