There's also a 24MP camera at the front.

The third sensor is the main camera with 24-megapixel resolution and f/1.7 aperture. Samsung Galaxy A9 features an unspecified octa-core processor paired with either 6GB RAM or 8GB RAM. Dubbed as the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), it comes with a total of five cameras- four on the rear side and one on the front side. Next, we have an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens that will provide more background in the shot that you are about to snap.

Aside from the eye-catching camera set-up, the new phone comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, contactless mobile payment capabilities, and expandable storage of up to 512GB - all features common to high-end smartphones. The display size measures in at 6.3 inches diagonally, so it is larger than the Galaxy S9+ Plus and only a fraction smaller than the Galaxy Note 9. The smartphone, called Galaxy A9 (2018), has been unveiled at an ongoing event in Malaysia. There's also 128GB of in-built storage and a sizeable 3,800mAh battery, which Samsung claims is more than enough to keep the handset running throughout the day. Connectivity options on the handset include Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port.

There's not long to go now before the official unveiling of the Galaxy A9 - what else do you reckon it'll have in store? It will eventually be available in three unique colors; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink so stay tuned for more updates regarding its pricing.
