Last month, at a launch event in Malaysia, South Korean giant Samsung launched its premium mid-range smartphone — Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018). The company had said that the phone will make its way to the Indian market in the month of November.
Recently, we reported that the company is expected to launch the Galaxy A9 (2018) smartphone in the Indian market on 4th November, which seems in-line with the company’s earlier statement. Now, ahead of the phone’s launch in India, it’s pricing has leaked online.
Samsung India’s official website’s source code reveals that the Galaxy A9 (2018) could be priced at Rs. 39,000 which roughly converts to $534. The pricing is for the 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage model. To compare, it was unveiled with a European pricing of €599 (approximately $682).
For those who are unaware, the new Galaxy A9 is first of its kind smartphone which features a quad-camera setup on the back.

While the phone supports Face Unlock feature, it also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for added security.
