While the phone is effectively a direct successor to the original Galaxy A9 that first launched in 2016, the new Galaxy A9 tops its predecessor as the first smartphone fitted with a quad-camera main array. Today, this device is finally available for purchase in Malaysia and it can be yours for RM1,299. This gradient design will be offered in Bubble Pink, Lemonade Blue and Caviar Black colours when it goes on sale.

The Galaxy A9 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen that Samsung is branding an "Immersive Display", which as far as we can tell is marketing term to differentiate between the dual-curved "Infinity Display" technology found on the flagship Galaxy S9 and Note 9. It's powered by an eight-core processor, consisting of a 2.2GHz quad-core CPU and a 1.8GHz quad-core CPU. For more storage, there is a microSD card slot on the device.

For its size, the Galaxy A9 sports a generous 3,800mAh battery and is running Samsung's custom UI.

Let's start with the snapper specs: the rear array comprises a 24MP f/1.7 aperture lens, a 10MP f/2.4 2x telephoto lens, an 8MP f/2.4 wide-angle lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 lens for depth sensing.

With that being said, for selfies and video calls, you get a 24 MP single camera on the front having f/2.0 aperture.

The technology world is falling over itself to see who can load their smartphones with the most gimmicks. Needless to say, the Galaxy A9 impresses quite a lot in the specifications and features department, so Samsung is actually staying true to its word that the Korean giant will incorporate high-end features on its mid-range lineup.

Samsung focuses on mid-range, amid talk it's making a phone, that's not the Galaxy S10, with four rear cameras.

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A9.

Security-wise, the device comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back as well as face recognition. Samsung had rolled out these features for the bigger Galaxy S8+ as well.
