After all, it is a segment that's seeing a lot of buzz right now thanks to brands like OnePlus and more recently Pocophone.
Thursday's announcements bear out the tech giant's push to roll out new technology and cutting-edge features for its mid-range devices first ahead of its flagships, in a boost to cheaper models. It started things by bringing a triple camera Galaxy A7, but that wasn't enough which is why the company chose to add another sensor to create a quad camera system on the new Galaxy A9.

Samsung is yet to roll out Android 9.0 Pie update to its flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones and rumours suggest that Samsung would also add AI-features exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 along with the Android Pie upgrade. The device got announced in Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue, and Bubblegum Pink color variants. We do know that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will launch in Europe and the U.K. The U.S.is unlikely to be a launch market. The device sports aluminum body with the 3D curved back body. And on the bottom, as one comes to expect, there's a USB-C port on the bottom, a single speaker and no 3.5mm headphone jack, a move likely nark a few people.More news: Storm Callum: Amber weather alert issued for Wales
Samsung has once again forgone the notch in favour of trim but not-quite-edgeless bezels, framing a 6.3in FHD+ 1,080×2,220 Super AMOLED screen. "I'm positive that we do need a foldable phone". The display looks sharp and vivid, but slightly oversaturated which is a natural. This coupled with 6GB should offer some smooth user experience and easy multitasking. The smartphone comes in two different configurations - 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage. Of course, the last camera being a 5 MP depth sensor sounds like a cop-out just to ensure the A9 has the honor of being the first quad-rear camera device in a world where more sensors seem to be the norm.
Don't worry, there is still a front-facing 24mp camera, bringing the total to five. The feature can be enabled from the camera settings menu. It also takes detailed selfie with good exposure. Below it is a 10MP telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom that sits above the 24MP main camera.
The third lens is a 120° wide-angle attached to an 8Mp sensor. This is certainly an impressive device and it is about to get even better after you check out the rest of the specifications, especially the camera side of things.
The reliable 3,800mAh  battery life on the Galaxy A9 lets you live without limits and enjoy the outstanding long-lasting performance.
