At its "Galaxy Unpacked" launch event in Kuala Lumpur, Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy A9, also called the "World's first quad camera smartphone".

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A9 with a rear camera system comprised of four sensors. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue.

The Galaxy A9 features a gorilla glass design and has a large, 6.3in Full HD Super AMOLED screen. According to the result page, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB of RAM.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) receives power from 3,8000mAh battery. Finally, the last camera in the set-up packs an ultra-wide 10-megapixel sensor that provides a 120-degree field of view and should let you capture tall landmarks and big group shots without too much hassle. The phone's main lens is a 24 megapixel shooter. The flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 (64GB) is available at a discounted price of Rs 42,990 instead of Rs 62,500 during the festive season sale. Those four rear cameras are the real star here, representing the first time any smartphone has packed four lenses in one spot.

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.
