Elsewhere, the Galaxy A9 (2018) features a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2,220 x 1,080 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Additionally it comes with 6 GB of RAM and is running Android 8.0 out of the box. The 128GB of storage is impressive, with the microSD card slot able to tack on up to an additional 512GB.

'Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development, we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation, ' said Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh to mark the launch. Meanwhile, round the front there's a 24MP selfie camera with its own.

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.

This new photography feature includes a main 24-megapixel camera and a secondary 5-megapixel lens for depth effects. That last camera captures depth information and allows for the phone's Live Focus feature.

For its size, the Galaxy A9 sports a generous 3,800mAh battery and is running Samsung's custom UI. What we can say is that this is a feat of engineering that other companies will likely try to mimic or are already testing.

There's a rear fingerprint scanner too, plus a headphone jack and USB-C port on the base of the A9.

Samsung states that the Galaxy A9 will be available in select markets starting from November but did not care to divulge the pricing details right now. And all of those features come at a premium, as expected.

Yep, the brand new Samsung Galaxy A9 is a mid-range phone that provides "more ways to express yourself than ever before", according to the South Korean company.

There's no water resistance nor full Samsung Pay support, but you do get Bixby Voice and Dolby Atmos support (over wired and Bluetooth audio).
