Samsung offers numerous smartphones within its portfolio, ranging from the top-specced Galaxy Note series and S Series to the mid-range A series and budget J series.
I won't deny that the Samsung Galaxy A9 is a nice looking phone. The UK price is set at £549 for the solitary 128GB model, but how much USA customers will have to pay is still to be revealed. As a calculated guess-timate, the Galaxy A9 could cost somewhere between S$949-S$999 locally and that is fairly expensive for a mid-range, albeit a high-tech, phone.

Samsung will make the Galaxy A9 available in three colours; Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.
The 3,800mAh battery charges over USB-C and Samsung continues to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Before we get onto the cameras there a few other details worth mentioning. Below the hood, the A9 is powered by an Exynos chipset featuring octa-core processors (2.2GHz quad + 1.8GHz quad) and clubbed with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Samsung says this camera can capture 120-degrees worth of content in a single frame, which is a total of 77-degrees more than Samsung's previous wide-angle sensors. This is to "soak in the light and create brighter images".
Want to tell people that you took that super-fly picture of you using the world's first quad camera smartphone? More lenses doesn't automatically mean better experience though.
The second camera is a 10-megapixel, f/2,4 telephoto lens that's almost identical to the secondary camera on the Galaxy Note 9.
This new photography feature includes a main 24-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel lens for depth effects.
