As expected, this is a mid-range smartphone, even though it belongs in the upper-mid-range sector.

It seems as though Samsung is giving its mid-range A Series a lot of love lately, unveiling its first triple camera smartphone with the latest Galaxy A7.

On that note, and as these things usually go, it looks like we'll only find out further details down the road. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor along with Adreno 512 GPU. The Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card). A single 24-megapixel camera (f/2.4 aperture) is included on the phone's front side.

The rear is home to a fingerprint sensor and of course that all-important quad-camera unit, more of which we'll explore below.

Provided that Samsung sticks with its typical release schedule, the Galaxy Note 10, which usually launches in August, will likely be the first Samsung-branded handset to launch without a 3.5mm port. The phone gets 3D Glass curved back from its flagship Galaxy S9 and Samsung's own Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

While the world gets used to multiple lenses on the rear of their phones, Samsung is upping the ante yet again with its Quad Camera - as rumored earlier this week. A 3,800mAh battery powers the phone. The phone's dedicated Bixby button sits on the left.

It will come in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink. The device's camera setup was leaked yesterday which showed four cameras on the back of the device. The 120-degrees ultra wide-angle lens helps you take a bigger than bigger group shots. However, the company did say that the phone would launch sometime during mid-November in an unknown number of markets. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Samsung Experience skin on top.

Samsung has been generous with onboard storage too.

Thankfully, the Galaxy A9 (2018) costs significantly less than what most flagship smartphones charge in 2018. It has quite a few features but here are some of the best Galaxy A9 (2018) features for which you may consider spending your money on this device.

It'll go on sale in the United Kingdom in November, starting at £549.
