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

The Sam­sung Gal­axy A9 sports a 6.3inch full-hd+ SAMOLED dis­play with a 19:9 as­pect ra­tio.

The hand­set is backed by a Qual­comm Snap­dragon 660 pro­ces­sor, cou­pled with 128GB in­ter­nal stor­age that can be fur­ther ex­panded. It comes in 6GB and 8GB RAM vari­ants.

The Gal­axy A9 fea­tures dig­i­tal as­sis­tant Bixby, Sam­sung Pay and Sam­sung Health.

The de­vice comes in Caviar Black, Lemon­ade Blue and Bub­blegum Pink colours and a 3D Glass-curved back.
