The Samsung Galaxy A9 was unveiled last month, boasting to be the world’s first rear quad camera smartphone. Samsung has now launched the smartphone in India, bringing a 6GB RAM and a 8GB RAM variant to the country.
The main talking point of the Samsung Galaxy A9 is of course, the camera setup.

There is also an LED flash on the back to complete the package. The front camera is a 24MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 also makes for a good smartphone outside of its camera experience. The phone features a 6.3″ FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display. On the inside, the device sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC that is commonly spotted across higher mid-range smartphones. Complementing the powerful SoC are options of 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and expandability options up to another 512GB. The phone sports a beefy 3,800 mAh battery with fast charging support through the USB Type-C port, a fingerprint sensor on the back and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The phone launches with Android 8.0 Oreo underneath the Samsung Experience 9.0 UX, though there is no word currently on a timeline for the Android 9 Pie update.
