Samsung Galaxy A9's four camera setup aims to club all possible kinds of sensors and combine them to deliver better quality photos.

There's an ultra wide eight-megapixel (MP) camera at the top.

The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. The bottom lens is for a 5MP depth camera. The Galaxy A9 (2018) also packs decent mid-range hardware- Snapdragon 660 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM, Super AMOLED display and a massive 3800mAh battery. Under the hood is the unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. In terms of storage, the phone will have an internal storage capacity of 128GB, which can be expanded via microSD by an additional 512GB. Both RAM variants include 128 GB of storage.

It will remain to be seen as to whether the Galaxy A9 Star Pro will be making its way to our shores but we will be reaching out to Samsung Australia after the launch for local availability and pricing.
