Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) price in India and availability

The Galaxy A9 price in India has been set at Rs 36,990 for the 6GB + 128GB variant and Rs 39,990 for the 8GB + 128GB model. Keeping in mind that the phone has a global price of 599 euros (approx Rs 51,300), the Galaxy A9’s official price in India is quite competitive and necessary considering that it will go up against the likes of the OnePlus 6T and Honor 10. The Galaxy A9 will be available for pre-order starting Tuesday, November 20 on Airtel’s online store, Amazon India, Samsung Shop, Paytm Mall and Flipkart. The device will be available starting November 28.
Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) specifications

The new Galaxy A9 brings a 6.3-inch FHD+ (1080×2160) Super AMOLED display with Always-On support. The glossy metal frame is sandwiched between glass on the front and back. One of the highlights of the design is the gradient colour scheme on the rear panel that looks similar to phones like the Honor 10 and Huawei P20. This gradient design will be offered in Bubblegum Pink, Lemonade Blue and Caviar Black colours when it goes on sale.

The Galaxy A9 is powered by an 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset which is paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The phone is offered with 128GB of internal storage with support for expandability up to 512GB via microSD card. The device houses a 3,800mAh battery with fast charge support via USB Type-C. Unlike the Galaxy A7 (2018) which has a side fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy A9 gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The device also supports facial recognition as well.

The big USP here is the vertical quad-camera setup on the back. This system includes a 24MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP 120-degree ultra wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a 5MP depth sensor. Most of the sensors on board are similar to the recent Galaxy A7, with the only addition being the zoom lens. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also comes with a 24MP front-facing sensor that supports Selfie Focus mode.
