Samsung India will introduce Galaxy A9 — its first smartphone with quadruple primary (rear) camera system — this month that is going to be aggressively priced to take on the leader OnePlus 6T, industry sources said on Monday to IANS. The premium-segment smartphone is likely to come in two variants — 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB — both expandable up to 512GB.
The device has vertically stacked four cameras consisting of an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 24MP main sensor, a 5MP depth sensor and a 10MP telephoto sensor at the back. The Galaxy A9 will come with larger and wider 6.3-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display for the immersive viewing experience.
The device is powered by Octa-core Snapdragon 660 and will house an ergonomic design with a 3D glass-curved back. Samsung globally launched Galaxy A9 in Malaysia last month.
In other news, Samsung launched the Galaxy A7 (2018) in India very recently which arrived with three cameras and an aggressive price of Rs 23,990 by Samsung standards. The Galaxy A9 is also said to be priced aggressively which could be below Rs 35,000, to give a tough fight to the OnePlus 6T. Samsung has recently reduced the price of Galaxy A8 Star in India because it’s also powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC. The Galaxy A8 Star is now retailing in India at a price of Rs 29,990.
