"Talking about the specifications, the Galaxy A9 (2018) sports a 6.3" Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ (1080 x 2220 pixels) resolution.

Powering the phone is a 3,800mAh which Samsung says should provide all-day power and the device comes with 128GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card.

The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB of RAM.

Weve had megahertz wars, megapixel wars and now camera count wars.

There's a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, face recognition support and a 3800mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

The new module is the 10MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 lens.

And, rounding off this ridiculous array, is a brand-new 5-megapixel, f/2.2 "live focus" depth camera.

International Monetary Fund not formally approached by Pakistan for financial assistance: chief economist
The IMF expects the US economy to grow 2.9 per cent this year, the fastest pace since 2005 and unchanged from the July forecast. The organisation added that the ongoing Brexit negotiations had also created "pervasive uncertainty" about future trade costs.

The price is a step up from the Galaxy A8, which was around £100 cheaper, but the new features could make this easily justifiable.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9". Perhaps most importantly, the A9 does indeed contain four cameras, each serving a slightly different objective.

IN its press release, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy A9 (2018) will go on sale in November. What's interesting is that the device will come with a twilight gradient effect in pink, blue and black.

You may be wondering why the need for multiple cameras on a smartphone. Secondary lenses are so past year, with phone manufacturers frantically squeezing as many cameras as possible onto the back of their devices, in a desperate attempt to one-up each other. The best thing about Galaxy A9 is that Samsung has not compromised on any spec, even after inducing the quad-camera. Interestingly, there is only one front facing 8MP camera. Yes, the phone also ships with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Samsung has done a good job of ensuring that the Bixby key isn't as annoying on this device as it is on some of its other phones. Samsung's Android UI also looks considerably different compared to stock Android, so keep note of that too.

It's unclear when the USA models will be available, or the pricing, but we expect both to be announced very soon.
