Recently, we have had the reports of Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) coming to India in November. Now, given that we are already in mid of the month, Samsung has officially confirmed that the device will be unveiled in the country on 20th of November.

The South Korean giant has sent media invites for the launch event, which will be held in Gurugram on November 20. Following the same, the company has also confirmed the launch date in an official video. In the meanwhile, Amazon and Flipkart have created landing pages for the upcoming new smartphone, indicating that it won’t be exclusive to one and instead, will be sold via both of them. Interested ones can register using the “Notify me” button. We expect the phone to retail in offline markets as well.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) has not one, two, but a total of four rear cameras as its USP, further making it the world’s first smartphone to bear four rear cameras.

Coming to the specs, the device comes with a 6.3-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clubbed with 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.

As mentioned, the A9 (2018) bears a Quad-camera setup at the back, featuring a 24MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture 8MP wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture and a 10MP sensor with 2X optical zoom and f/2.4 aperture. On the front it sports a 24MP camera for selfies and video calling. The camera app is equipped with nifty features like customisable Live Focus, AI-based scene optimiser, AR emojis and more.

On the software front, it runs Samsung UI on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and is backed by a massive 3,800 mAh battery. A fingerprint scanner is given at the rear for unlocking the device. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5,0, NFC, USB Type-C and A-GPS.

As far as the pricing is concerned, according to the source code in listing on Samsung’s official Indian website, the smartphone will come at a price tag of Rs 39,000 which we think is for the higher-end variant with 8/128GB RAM and storage while the 6/128GB model is expected to come at around Rs. 35,000. The device will directly compete with the recently launched OnePlus 6T at that price tag. That being said, stay tuned for the launch event.

Published

on

5G race has already started for telecom equipment makers, and slowly the race is also being witnessed in the smartphone market as smartphone makers are eager to launch smartphones that support 5G. Xiaomi has also joined the race and has announced the launch of Mi 9 Pro and Mi Mix 4. The company has announced a launch event in Beijing, China on September 24. At the event, Xiaomi will also unveil a new Smart TV.

Xiaomi announced the launch of these two phones via its official Twitter and Weibo account. Along with the mention of Mix, there is also a mention of MIUI 11. So, we can expect that we will get a glimpse of the MIUI 11 as well on September 24.

However, even before the launch, some details regarding these phones have been out there. 5G is something very obvious but apart from that, it is known that the Mi 9 Pro Mi Charge Turbo, 30W superfast wireless charging. In terms of hardware, the Mi 9 Pro is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with massive 12GB of RAM, a configuration quite similar to what we get on ASUS ROG Phone II. In terms of camera, the Mi 9 Pro would feature a triple camera setup on the back where there is a 48-megapixel primary camera, alongside a 12-megapixel telephone lens and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens.

The Mi Mix 4 is even closer to what we have already seen, except the 5G connectivity option. It would be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, coupled with 12GB of RAM and 1TB onboard storage. The phone is said to have a display with a high refresh rate of 90Hz and it would support 40W fast charging. The phone will have a popup camera setup and there will be a 100-megapixel camera- Yes, you read that right! That’s all known for now regarding the Mi Mix 4.

We may also take a look at some of the new features of MIUI 11 and how Xiaomi has redesigned its custom skin. The MIUI 11 may bring new icon styles, an always-on display mode, dark mode scheduler, redesigned file manager and a quick reply feature, but very little is known about it so far. However, it will be pretty interesting for many skeptic people like me who are most curious to know whether Xiaomi would get rid of stupid ads with MIUI 11 or not. At the event, a new Mi Smart TV may be unveiled, and some reports suggest that it would be an 8K premium smart TV. So, looks like September 24 would be quite a busy day for Mi Fans!

There is a USB Type-C charging port at the bottom that doubles up as an audio jack along with speaker grill and antenna.
