The new Samsung Galaxy A9 was revealed in all its quad camera glory at the company's Samsung A Galaxy Event, held at the W Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, putting to rest speculation that had been growing ever since the tech giant teased its "4x fun" event last month.

Powering the phone is a 3,800mAh which Samsung says should provide all-day power and the device comes with 128GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card.

Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy A9 on October 11.

The highlight of the upcoming Galaxy A9 (2018) will no doubt be its quad-camera setup at the back.

The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs.

When is the Samsung Galaxy live stream?

The first camera is an 8MP f/2.4 120° ultra-wide angle sensor.


Next up, there's an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor that should improve the quality of your zoomed photographs, similar to the 2x optical zoom found on the iPhone Xs.

And that's not where the cameras end, since there is a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 for all selfies and video calls.

Samsung has also included a number of flagship features in its Galaxy A9 device, such as its Infinity Display, Bixby assistant, and support for Samsung Pay.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9". It measures 162.5 x 77 x 7.8 mm and weighs 183g.

Elsewhere, the Galaxy A9 ships is powered by a Snapdragon 660, coupled with a generous 6GB of RAM.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7 three weeks ago, with the phone becoming the first from the South Korean manufacturer to feature three cameras at the back.
