The Galaxy A9 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ (1080x2160) Super AMOLED display with Always-On support.

Under the hood sits an octa-core chip offering top speeds of 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz to take care of less demanding tasks. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and has 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. It has a 3,800mAh battery and runs Android 8.0. Up front is a 24MP f/2.0 camera for selfies. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C and NFC. It measures 162.50 x 77.00 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 183.00 grams.

The Galaxy A9 will cost between €550 and €599 ($635 and $690), according to AllAboutSamsung. A fingerprint scanner is present on the backside of the phone.

As seen earlier, the Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with a quad-camera array. The Samsung Galaxy A9 will arrive in three colors: caviar black, lemonade blue and bubblegum pink. The leak contained images and hardware information about the device, suggesting it would be a mid-range smartphone with a whopping four cameras. You're not only getting a telephoto sensor for lossless zoom here, but also an ultra-wide sensor so that you can capture everything into a frame without moving further apart from your subject.

And that's not where the cameras end, since there is a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 for all selfies and video calls. The Samsung Bixby voice assistant is here, plus Samsung Pay and Samsung Health.

Samsung has been generous with onboard storage too.

Samsung describes the Galaxy A9 as the world's first "quad-camera" phone.

Memory hirs 4GB of RAM and storage starts at 128GB onboard, which can be upgraded to 512GB with a microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) will be available starting next month. The new Galaxy will be aimed squarely at the "Instagram generation" when it goes on-sale in mid-November for £549 (roughly $720), Samsung says. Prices are yet to be announced and models and prices will vary in different global market.
