This is the world’s first device with quad camera system at the rear and the first from the company to feature dual tone, reflective gradient design.

The 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variants of Galaxy A9 cost Rs 36,990 and Rs 39,990, respectively.

Prospective buyers can pre-book the smartphone starting Thursday. The device will be available across all channels starting November 28.

Samsung’s next flagship, the Galaxy Note 10, may not feature Qualcomm’s latest gaming-centric Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset.

While the international models of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will feature a newer Exynos chip that is found in the Galaxy S10 series, Note 10 models sold in the US will feature the original Snapdragon 855 processor, not the 855 Plus, 9to5Google quoted the WinFuture on Tuesday.

ASUS’s ROG Phone II which is slated to debut later this month, would be among the first smartphones to feature the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.

Meanwhile, the launch of Galaxy Note 10 is likely to get delayed as the tech major is reportedly slowing down the production of its top tier Exynos 9825 chipset for the handset.
