And the Samsung Galaxy A9 is here! Samsung has officially brought its (and world’s) first smartphone with four camera lenses at the back, to Indian shores.

Back in September, DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung’s mobile division, had said that the company would focus more on the mid-range segment, bringing devices with flagship-grade features at affordable prices.

It seems that today’s Galaxy A9 launch is a step in that direction.
