This translates into phones that have better hardware and build compared to the J series of phones and a few features that have tricked down from the S-series.

Meanwhile, Huawei is certainly holding fire to Samsung's feet with its own impending folding phone launch. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back side of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) features a huge 6.3-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with a resolution of 1080×2220 pixels. We also expect it to be a China-only device, at least initially. Samsung had teased a flexible OLED display at CES 2013.

The rumor continues to depend so quickly on the long-awaited and very deferred Samsung folding phone that it begins to look like the Galaxy F (for fast), perhaps the flawless name for this fast-growing generator of interest among technologists. Reports say that the Galaxy F will be available internationally. "I'm positive that we do need a foldable phone".

Umesh Yadav resumed his spell on Day 2 and it took him no time to take the three remaining overnight Windies wickets. Hamilton was far from convincing and alongside a few misses down the leg side he dropped Pant on 24 off Gabriel.

The phone will be launched in the U.K and the rest of Europe but so far no news about a possible U.S launch. It's possible that the first version will finally be released in 2019 at the MWC 2019.

While not outrightly mentioned, the lack of any VR headset or technology during Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 Unpacked event did not go unnoticed. We liked the placement as it was fairly easy to reach. As expected, the quad camera is the main highlight of the commercial. Lastly, a 2x optical zoom telephoto lens, coupled with a 10 MP f/2.4 camera setup. What is great about having these many cameras is that you can alternate between different lenses to the photo will be taken in different effects such as shots taken from a long distance or panoramic ones. All this is backed by an LED flash. The Galaxy A7's 24MP AF (F1.7) Lens automatically lets more light in by combining four pixels into one pixel in low light conditions.

In an interview with CNET, the executive revealed that the device, when unfolded, will work much like a tablet, offering up a large screen and multi-tasking capabilities. In the front, there's also a selfie camera, bringing the total camera count up to five. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 chipset, having four cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

The global smartphone market looks like it has slowed down and that could be seen in the earnings guidance released by the company. It has an internal storage of 128GB which is expandable up to 512GB via microSD card. The Galaxy A9 (2018) is a dual-SIM device that has two Nano SIM slots.
