Of course, there is more to the Galaxy A9 (2018) than just its four rear cameras. Powering up the phone is, surprisingly, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 6GB RAM, and pretty sizeable 3800mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android Oreo 8.0 out-of-the-box and comes with a triple card slot.

The South Korean tech giant stuck a 24MP f/1.7 main camera, a 10MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, a 120-degree 8MP f/2.8 ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth on the back of its latest smartphone.

IN its press release, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will go on sale in November. The phone can be purchased in three colour options- Bubblegum Pink, Caviar Black, and Lemonade Blue. This is certainly an impressive device and it is about to get even better after you check out the rest of the specifications, especially the camera side of things. Samsung hasn't said whether all three will make it to India or not. This has Scene Optimiser, which uses AI scene recognition to identify the subject and adjust settings accordingly.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9".

Well, the Samsung Galaxy A9 has been designed for the "Instagram generation". We do know that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will launch in Europe and the U.K. The U.S.is unlikely to be a launch market. Samsung is not the first to take this route, many smartphones have offered multiple cameras including those from Huawei which featured monochrome sensors to enhance the image from the main camera and provide depth effects. There is now no pricing information available for the device.

Speaking at the event, DJ Koh, president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung Electronics, said that with the Galaxy A7 and A9, the company was "showcasing Samsung's commitment to serve everyone".
