Last month, Samsung unveiled the high-end Galaxy A9 smartphone at an event held in Malaysia. It is the world’s first smartphone to feature quad rear cameras. As teased earlier, the company today launched the Galaxy A9 smartphone in India. The device comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants and is priced at Rs 36,990 and Rs 39,990 respectively. It comes in Caviar Black, Bubblegum Pink, and Lemonade Blue color options.
The Galaxy A9 will be sold through offline retail stores and online via Amazon India, Flipkart, Airtel Online Store, Paytm Mall, and Samsung Online Store. It sports 3D curved glass body with a gradient finish. Talking about the specifications, the device comes with a 6.3” Super AMOLED Infinity display with Full HD+ (2220 x 1080 pixels) resolution. It packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 260 CPU and Adreno 512 GPU.
The device comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants with 128GB of internal storage. With the MicroSD card slot, the Galaxy A9 users can expand additionally up to 512GB. Coming to the cameras on this quad camera smartphone, there is a 24MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 10MP telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture, an 8MP ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and finally a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture.
With all these four rear cameras, the device can capture photos with 2x optical zoom, 120-degree wide-angle view, and DSLR-like bokeh shot. The camera app on this device also comes included with AI feature like auto scene detection for capturing better photos. On the front, there is a single 24MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. The Galaxy A9 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo-based Samsung Experience OS out of the box.
While the company recently introduced the all-new Android 9.0 Pie-based One UI, the roadmap doesn’t include Galaxy A9 in it. It is kept powered on by a 3,800mAh non-removable battery that also supports adaptive fast charging. On the rear, we can also spot the circular fingerprint sensor. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C port. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
