Samsung's recently unveiled Galaxy A9 (2018) will soon hit stores in India. The company has listed the flagship camera phone on official Samsung India website.
Though there is 'Buy Now' option website, it does not take order nor does it mention the price. However, if you look into the source code (courtesy, Mobigyaan) of the webpage, Samsung is ready to give a maximum of Rs 39,000 as exchange value for Galaxy A9 if they are ready to trade in their old device, meaning the Samsung's soon-to-be-launched phone will be priced in the range between Rs 45,000 and Rs 50,000.
For those unaware, Galaxy A9 is the world's first phone with quad-camera hardware. The rear camera module houses a 24MP main shooter with F1.7 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with 2 x optical zoom, F2.4 aperture, an ultra-wide 8MP snapper with 120-degree Field Of View (FOV) and 5MP depth sensor with F2.2 aperture.
With such advanced photography hardware, Galaxy A9 offers 2x Optical Zoom for detailed close-up shots even from far away. With an ultra wide lens and scene optimizer, users can capture in the photo compared to rival brands. It also boasts Artificial Intelligence (AI) Scene Recognition, which identifies the subject and adjusts settings accordingly for the best photo, in no time.
With Depth Lens, users can manually manage the photos' depth of field and focus on the subject for stunning, professional looking images. And with F1.7 aperture, the Galaxy A9's 24MP main camera can capture clear and bright images in both bright and low light conditions, Samsung claims.
On the front, it houses equally impressive 24MP camera with F2.0 aperture, which is decent enough to get good selfies even in low light conditions.
Other stipulated features include 6.3-inch full HD+ screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 octa-core CPU, 6GB/8GB storage, Android Oreo OS and comes with a 3,800mAh battery, which is more than enough to keep the phone running for more than a day under mixed usage.
