The Samsung Galaxy A9 has a striking resemblance with the Galaxy A7 (2018) which has three cameras. The Galaxy A9 (2018) is a very big phone as it has gthe same size with the Galaxy Note 9. The Galaxy A9 is the first Samsung mid-range phone to include a dedicated Bixby button. The Galaxy A9 (2018) has a regular rear-mounted capacitive fingerprint sensor and not the side mounted fingerprint reader-cum-power button as on Galaxy A7. As always, Samsung remains averse to camera bump and the quad-cameras still sit flush with the glass back. The device also has a USB Type-C port, speaker grill, and Audio Jack at the bottom, and a dedicated card slot in the SIM tray up top, should you need some extra storage. And yes, Samsung bundles a transparent case cover in the box.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 has the AMOLED advantage. The 6.3-inch ‘Infinity’ screen has Full HD resolution, excellent contrast, and allows you the option to switch between different color profiles. Samsung Galaxy A9 employs Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 660 mobile platform. The Snapdragon 660 is quite capable and, on the A9, is supported by 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The Galaxy A9 (2018) supports Dual SIM Dual VoLTE and call quality is quite good. The fingerprint sensor is fast and reliable. The Face Unlock isn’t as fast as what you’d get on Oppo, Vivo or OnePlus phones. The Experience UI on the Galaxy A9 (2018) is based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The Camera of the Galaxy A9 is one segment where Samsung is doing a fantastic job. The primary 24MP sensor (wide f/1.7 aperture) is the one you will be using most often, but Samsung throws a few more options in the mix – a depth sensor, wide-angle shooter, and a 10 MP sensor with a telephoto lens (2X Zoom). The battery capacity is 3,800 mAh and it also has the fast charging ability.
