Samsung Galaxy S9 with Bixby in use

With just over three weeks to go until the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) unveiling, leaks surrounding the device have started to flood in recently and today is seemingly no different.

While images of the smartphone are yet to be provided, the latest information does confirm various design details. Overall, it appears the smartphone will resemble both the Galaxy A9 Star and the newly-leaked Galaxy A7 (2018). This means that an elongated vertical camera setup will be included in the top corner. Unlike the two previously mentioned devices that boast two and three rear cameras respectively, though, the new Galaxy A9 Pro looks set to become the world’s first smartphone with four rear sensors. These will then be accompanied by an LED flash just below and a square-shaped rear fingerprint scanner towards the middle of the panel. Speaking of which, the rear glass is set to be curved slightly in order to improve comfort.

Aside from the details mentioned above, users should also expect a dedicated Bixby button on the smartphone’s frame. Additionally, the smartphone will retain the popular 3.5mm headphone jack. When it comes to the internal side of things, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 is expected to be present and will presumably be coupled with 4GB of RAM.

As with the Galaxy A7 (2018), sales of the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018) are expected to commence shortly after the unveiling event on October 11. While no pricing information has been revealed as of yet, the device will be made available in three color options: Black, Blue Gradient, and Pink Gradient.

The Galaxy A series will find it extremely tough to compete against the mammoth value proposition that the Oneplus 6T will bring. I am expecting similar price points for the Galaxy A series and the Oneplus 6T .

Regardless of which phone is actually better, Samsung will sell more simply due to brand recognition.

Being a Samsung phone I'm not worried about features, I know Samsung will cram every feature it's got inside the phone(headphone jack, SD Card slot, IP68 rating, etc...), Fm Radio and front facing Flash would be nice additions also. The Snapdragon 710 chipset is powerful enough for my needs. What I'm more concerned about is the quality of the camera output, battery size and pricing, if Sammy gets those three right then Huawei and Co. are screwed big time.

You probably don't have much idea about Sammy's mid-range phones. Last A9 Pro doesn't came with haptic feedback and gyro sensors, even though it was sold at much higher price than OnePlus flagship phones...

They're also going to include a Floppy Disc Drive and DVD Drive too.

Who needs 3 cameras? Two camera's are more than enough (until Apple does it)
