Samsung officially announced the Galaxy A9 (2018) in Malaysia last month, introducing its latest midrange smartphone with flagship cameras. On November 20, the company will also roll out the phone in India and it will be exclusively available via Flipkart, the country's largest e-commerce company which is now owned by Walmart.
Although there's no official word on the pricing for the latest iteration of the Galaxy A9 (SM-A920F) in India, reports suggest the device may cost around ₹35,000 (~$485), lower than the previously rumored ₹40,000 (~$550).
The phone is billed as the world's first quad-camera handset, boasting a 24MP main camera on the back of the device. This is paired with a 5MP depth sensor for portrait mode, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 120° field of view, and a 10MP telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom. On the front of the phone sits a 24MP camera with f/2.0 aperture.
All color options of the phone — pink, black and blue — are also expected to be available upon launch in the country, as per Flipkart's teaser. The upcoming Indian launch of the Galaxy A9 (2018) marks Samsung's growing focus on that market, especially after it opened its largest flagship store worldwide in Bengaluru.
