Remember when LG released the V40 ThinQ with three rear-facing cameras? Well, Samsung has stepped up to the plate and is ready to show off. With the Galaxy A9 (2018), which Samsung has revealed in Kuala Lumpur, the South Korean company is packing in four different rear camera sensors that enable users to take a wide variety of shots.
Similar to its flagship brothers, the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) sports a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2,220×1,080 resolution.
Internally, the handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset clocked at 2.2GHz. Additionally, the Galaxy A9 specs sheet includes 6GB to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. If this isn’t enough for you, Samsung allows customers to add up to 512GB of additional storage via a microSD card.
The mid-tier device also includes a 3,800mAh battery, charging via a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack; find the complete list of specs in the table below:
