Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) announced: Price, specifications, features and more

Of course, the last camera being a 5 MP depth sensor sounds like a cop-out just to ensure the A9 has the honor of being the first quad-rear camera device in a world where more sensors seem to be the norm.

The Galaxy A9 has been priced at 599 euros (approx Rs 51,300).

I got the opportunity to spend some time with the Galaxy A9, and here are my first impressions. Samsung hasn't said whether all three will make it to India or not.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 6.3-inch S-AMOLED screen that produces Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels. The front and back glass is quite slippery and attracts smudges very easily. And, it has been launched in Lemonade Blue, Caviar Black and Bubblegum Pink color variants.

Under the hood sits an octa-core chip offering top speeds of 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz to take care of less demanding tasks. They offer either 6 or 8GB of RAM, and both come with 128GB of storage.

The Aussie looked solid in the opening set as Klahn - ranked 104 in the world - didn't look overly threatening to Kyrgios' charge. Doubles great Woodbridge says Kyrgios, who this week lost the top Australian ranking to Alex de Minaur, gets singled out.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) receives power from 3,8000mAh battery. There appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, though some are reporting it's on the side. The device also supports facial recognition as well.

Users can unlock the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) using the software-based Face Unlock functionality. Most of the sensors on board are similar to the recent Galaxy A7, with the only addition being the zoom lens. Interestingly, there is only one front facing 8MP camera.

The upper bezel of the Galaxy A9 (2018) houses a 24-megapixel selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture. Those four rear cameras are the real star here, representing the first time any smartphone has packed four lenses in one spot. The device has no less than four cameras on the back.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is a dual SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Recently, the company launched the Galaxy A7, which brings a triple camera setup. Hopefully, customers who plan to upgrade to the Galaxy A9 will not have to wait too long for the device to be updated to Android 9 Pie.
