Samsung Galaxy A9's four camera setup aims to club all possible kinds of sensors and combine them to deliver better quality photos.

"Talking about the specifications, the Galaxy A9 (2018) sports a 6.3" Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ (1080 x 2220 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz.

The cameras are also aligned on the left side of the phone, similar to that of the new Apple iPhone iPhone XS - but definitely much bigger.

This new photography feature includes a main 24-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel lens for depth effects. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB Type-C, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). It measures 162.50 x 77.00 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 183.00 grams.

Samsung has not revealed anything about the A9 (2018) but had teased about it on social media with an image that shows "4X Fun" written on it along with "Let the fun times begin".

The device features rounded display corners, while its power / lock and volume up / down buttons are placed on the right.

The Galaxy A9 phone will ship with Android Oreo and is available in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue or Bubblegum Pink.
