Samsung had introduced the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) with quadruple cameras last month and the handset is believed to be arriving in India very shortly. Samsung has today posted the listing of the new phone on its official website, the code of which has revealed its potential launch price in India.
According to the code, The Galaxy A9 (2018) will be available at a price of Rs 39,000. However, in Europe, it retails for about €599 (i.e. Rs 50,000~). That is a big difference but it can be accounted for by factors such as low-cost local manufacturing in India.
Previously 91mobiles had shared the detail of the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) listing on the Samsung’s Indian website. Moreover, Samsung has already created a registration page where we can get the update regarding the phone, although Samsung yet has to announce about the official release of the upcoming phone.
For the unaware, the new Galaxy A9 (2018) features a quadruple camera at the back with sensors of 24MP + 10MP + 8MP + 5MP. The camera boasts some interesting features like ultra-wide camera, a telephoto lens and a depth sensor. At front, it carries a 24MP selfie shooter camera. Furthermore, the camera app is docked with highlighting features like Live Focus, AI-based scene optimizer, AR emojis and many more.
The Galaxy A9 (2018) appears to come with a display of 6.3-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display endowed with very slim bezels. The phone is run by an octa-core processor. Strangely in Malaysia the handset will be manufactured in two variants one is 6GB RAM-128GB inbuilt memory and other is 8GB RAM with 128GB inbuilt memory. Though in India it will arrive in only one variant i.e. 6GB RAM. Seems like Samsung has planned to launch the 8GB variant in few selective countries and this 8GB variant may come later after the proper release of 6GB variant.
