Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) announced: Price, specifications, features and more

Samsung launches A9 smartphone with four cameras for the 'Instagram generation'

Samsung says the handset is "optimized for Instagram", as it targets young adults who have camera quality at the top of their mobile feature list.

This is yet another camera feature that makes the Galaxy A9 appealing. "Though the A9's release date is still elusive, we know it will have four cameras, a 6.3" display, 6GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 660 processor - all for around £550 ($725). There is 128GB of built-in storage plus a micro SD slot to add up to another 512GB. It also comes with a beefy 3,800mAh battery, keeps the headphone jack, and features a nice color gradient around back. 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. The primary camera on the back of the phone has a resolution of 24 megapixels and an aperture of f / 1.7. It measures 162.50 x 77.00 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 183.00 grams.

It wouldn't be a phone launch without a headline-grabbing feature, and despite the new Samsung Galaxy A9 sitting in the middle of Samsung's formidable phone range - "premium midrange" is the preferred description - it still gets an eye-catching new spec.

Samsung has included fingerprint sensor at the back, and it is quite snappy. The phone's dedicated Bixby button sits on the left.

Samsung will make the Galaxy A9 available in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

Samsung touts its rear camera setup as "the world's first rear quad camera". The bottom lens is for a 5MP depth camera.

The A9 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display. It will run Google's Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the company's Experience UI skin on top.

Samsung has been generous with onboard storage too.

These are some of the best Galaxy A9 (2018) features.

Samsung focuses on mid-range, amid talk it's making a phone, that's not the Galaxy S10, with four rear cameras.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone was launched in October 2018.

It'll go on sale in the United Kingdom in November, starting at £549. "Possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely it will expand", said Koh, "I'm positive that we do need a foldable phone".
