Samsung’s newest Galaxy A-series smartphone, the Galaxy A9 (2018), is now available for purchase in India. The Galaxy A9 was announced last week in the country as the world’s first smartphone with a quad-camera system. This is arguably the biggest highlight of the device, but the Galaxy A9 also offers a gradient colour design and a Snapdragon 660 chipset.
The new Galaxy A9’s price in India starts at Rs 36,990 for the 6GB + 128GB variant and Rs 39,990 for the 8GB + 128GB model. There exists some best 8 GB RAM Mobile models in India available under Samsung Brand. The Galaxy A9 can be bought online on Airtel’s online store, Amazon India, Samsung Shop, Paytm Mall and Flipkart. The base model of the Galaxy A9 is available right now, while the 8GB RAM model is up for pre-orders and will go on sale from December 4, 2018.
The Galaxy A9 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ (1080×2160) Super AMOLED display with Always-On support. It is protected by glass on the front and back. One of the highlights of the design is the gradient colour theme on the rear panel that looks similar to phones like the Honor 10 and Huawei P20. This gradient design will be offered in Bubblegum Pink, Lemonade Blue. There is also a plain Caviar Black colour option as well.
Powering the Galaxy A9 is a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset which is paired with up to 8GB of RAM. The phone is offered with 128GB of internal storage with support for expandability up to 512GB via microSD card. The device houses a 3,800mAh battery with fast charge support via USB Type-C. Unlike the Galaxy A7 (2018) which has a side fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy A9 gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The device also supports facial recognition as well.
The big USP here is the vertical quad-camera setup on the back. This system includes a 24MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a 5MP depth sensor. Most of the sensors on board are similar to the recent Galaxy A7, with the only addition being the zoom lens. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also comes with a 24MP front-facing sensor that supports Selfie Focus mode.
The camera app will let you switch between the regular sensor to a wide angle sensor with just a tap or switch between 2X optical zoom lens and depth sensor without needing additional third-party accessories. So you can capture an ultra-wide panorama or a 2x macro shot, depending on your taste and the scene. The camera also gets an AI scene optimised feature that will recognise your environment and automatically adjust the setting to capture the best shot.
