The South Korean tech giant showcased the device at its official launch in Malaysia earlier today.

It also sports a 24-megapixel selfie camera.
The display is a 6.34″ Super AMOLED 18.5:9 Full HD+ screen and is covered in 2.5D glass.
They also added that the new A9 supports the Intelligent Camera system as in the flagship Galaxy Note9, which automatically identifies objects to provide users with optimized shooting modes.
The Galaxy A9 also notifies users when photos are out of focus or when it detects a person has blinked their eyes. Such features can allow shooters to get better results.
Under the hood, there’s a impressive 3800mAh battery with 128GB of storage along with the option to expand on this via the Micro SD card slot. For better or worse, the new handset also comes with Bixby and Samsung Health.
