The Price of Samsung Galaxy A9 May in India Give OnePlus 6T Run For Its Money

Must Read

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (KRX:005930) is all set to launch Galaxy A9 in India on November 20, 2018. It’s the world’s first quad-camera high-end smartphone from Samsung and a lot is riding on the success of the device. To make it more appealing for Indian users, the company has apparently decided to set the price of Galaxy A9 in such a way that could give many recently launched – especially OnePlus 6T – a run for their money.

According to the recent leak a day head of the India launch of Galaxy A9, Samsung is all set to surprise Indian consumers with the jaw-dropping price of Galaxy A9.

Peeping into the source code of Samsung’s official Indian website revealed that the price of Galaxy A9 (2018) could start from Rs 39,000 (US$540). This will put it in a direct competition of OnePlus 6T, which was recently launched with much of fanfare. The starting variant of OnePlus 6T, which carries 6GB RAM and 128 GB of storage under the hood, is price tagged with Rs. 37,999/- in India.


Price of Galaxy A9 Makes It More Adorable

If there is any truth in the leak, Samsung could easily capture a lion’s share of the high-end segment of the smartphone market, considering the powerful specification and price which will definitely make head turn.

For those who are unaware, Samsung Galaxy A9 is the first smartphone that sports quad-camera setup on its back. The four rear cameras include a 24-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 10-megapixel telephoto lens offering 2X optical zoom and 5-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.2 camera.

Samsung Galaxy A9 also features a 24-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calling. The 6.3-inch AMOLED display with 2220 x 1880 pixel resolution makes it a perfect fit for those who love having a big-screen smartphone.

To make it more affordable, Samsung have to cut a few corners. Unlike OnePlus 6T, Galaxy A9 have Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 660 processor. Although the processor is powerful enough to provide a smooth experience to all its users, it could be a bit of disappointment for power users, especially the ones who like to make use of their smartphone for games.

Galaxy A9 also misses the in-screen fingerprint authentication. Though the phone offers Face unlock feature, it comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. To give the all-day usage experience Samsung has put powerful 3,800 mAh battery under the hood.


All and all, with the laked price of Galaxy A9, it seems to be a promising device that offers more value for money than any other device currently available in the market. Having an experience of a smartphone that sports 4-camera lens is will definitely take your smartphone experience to a whole new level.

As the launch of Galaxy A9 in India is just around the corner, it would be interesting to see if the price of Galaxy A9 plays a crucial rule in making the people fall for it. Considering all the cashback and EMI offers, the device could become more adorable, especially for those who are planning to buy OnePlus 6T.
