Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) price, specifications, features, comparison

It is the latest mid-range smartphone from the company that is the first to feature four rear cameras. Today, this device is finally available for purchase in Malaysia and it can be yours for RM1,299.

The Galaxy A9 allows you to capture photos effortlessly with its 24MP f/1.7 main camera on the rear. It doesn't look like we're getting this pretty pink one we have in these pictures.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 6.3-inch S-AMOLED screen that produces Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels. It also packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and either 6 or 8GB of RAM. Perhaps most importantly, the A9 does indeed contain four cameras, each serving a slightly different goal.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) receives power from 3,8000mAh battery. With four different cameras at the rear, Samsung has put in premium features in the Galaxy A9. The handset will be available for purchase in select markets starting from early November. The Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with two SIM card slots, and this is a hybrid dual SIM setup we're looking at here, which means that you can use its second SIM card slots in order to insert a microSD card, and expand the phone's storage. The rear cameras are arranged vertically on the left-hand side, adjacent to the fingerprint reader. Samsung is yet to announce when the phone will make its way to India.

Samsung has also included a number of flagship features in its Galaxy A9 device, such as its Infinity Display, Bixby assistant, and support for Samsung Pay.

Speaking about the new A9, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, said: "As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication".

The 3D curved glass back on Samsung Galaxy A9 is borrowed from flagship smartphones. Placed at the top is an 8MP Ultra Wide camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view.

We won't detail too much about the phone specs but here are the main features.
