  • Samsung Unveils the 4-Camera, Midrange Galaxy A9

Overall, the Galaxy A9 (2018) hardware looks quite good for a mid-range smartphone, but the price tag will be a deal breaker.

In the United Kingdom it will cost £549, though we don't yet know the U.S. or Euro price of the phone. Samsung bases the design around a notchless 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2220 pixels resolution. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 710 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz.

It'll take some proper processing power to make the most of those four lenses, and while the A9 is hardly packing top-of-the-line specs, it should hold its own.

As for the internal storage, both the variants ship with 128GB that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card. It offers a 2x optical zoom compared to the main camera.

The Galaxy A7 meanwhile features a 8MP 120 degree ultra wide lens, a 24MP lens, and a depth lens. Add to that a 24-megapixel autofocus selfie shooter, and you end up with a phone that packs way too many cameras. The phone features a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, while it comes with Bluetooth 5 and an NFC chip. It measures 162.50 x 77.00 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 183.00 grams. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Galaxy A9? The A9 is also packed to the brim with other interesting features. The phone's cameras are vertically-aligned, while an LED flash sits right below them.

In terms of the rest of the build, there's only a single speaker, but you do at least get a headphone jack (with support for Dolby Atmos) along with USB-C for charging.

Samsung will make the Galaxy A9 available in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink. The LG V40 ThinQ has five, but for those who need something a little more affordable, Samsung's new midrange Galaxy A9 has four rear cameras. A "long lasting" 3,800mAh battery is fitted. We will be there at the launch so keep it locked on to us for the latest details.

Speaking about the new A9, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, said: "As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication". The South Korean company has also included some of its on apps such as Samsung Pay, Bixby Assistant and Health.
