Samsung will be launching its quad-camera smartphone in India a few hours from now. The company is holding an event in Gurgaon starting 12pm where it will launch the Galaxy A9 (2018). This is Samsung’s newest A series phone that comes a few months after the Galaxy A7 (2018). The new Galaxy A9 was first announced in Malaysia last month as the world’s first phone with four rear cameras. Samsung will be livestreaming the event on Samsung’s official website.
The Galaxy A9 is yet another attempt by Samsung to bring unique features to its mid-range Galaxy A series to take on the competition. Not only does the Galaxy A9 tout an array of cameras on the back, but it also comes with a fresh new look thanks to a gradient colour design on the rear panel. This gradient design was announced in Bubble Pink, Lemonade Blue and Caviar Black last month, but we will have to wait and see if all three variants will be coming to India.
Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) expected price in India
The Galaxy A9 (2018) was announced globally with a price tag of 599 euros (approx Rs 51,300). We will know the India price of the device in a few hours, but we do expect it to fall well below Rs 50,000. Reports earlier this month suggest the device could come at a price of Rs 39,999 or lower, which would give it a better standing to compete against the likes of the OnePlus 6T.
