Samsung Galaxy A9 made its debut on November 20 and now the flagship camera phone is finally available on both online and brick-and-mortar stores in India.

The new Samsung phone comes in two variants — 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM+128GB storage -- for Rs 36,990 and Rs 39,990, respectively. As part of the launch offers, the company is offering consumers up to Rs 3,000 cash back when they purchase the device through HDFC debit or credit cards.

Also, the Galaxy A9 6GB variant will be available on the Airtel Online Store at a down payment of Rs 3,690 and EMI of Rs 2,349 and the 8GB variant will be available at a down payment of Rs 4,890 and EMI of Rs 2,449.

Furthermore, Airtel postpaid plans will come built-in with the EMIs and will have unlimited benefits including large dollops of data, unlimited voice calling, National roaming and a free subscription to Airtel TV.

The USP of the Galaxy A9 is the photography hardware. On the backside, the primary camera module houses not two or three, but four sensors—one, a 24MP main snapper 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 a 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 very less loss of quality in terms of clarity. 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 swift 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 a terrific 24MP shooter with F2.0 aperture, which is decent enough to get good selfies even in low light conditions.

Samsung Galaxy A9 sports 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.
