Earlier this month at an event in Malaysia, Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy A9 (2018). This is the first device from the company to boast a quad-camera setup at the back. Now it seems, the device is ready to be launched in China.

A teaser poster (spotted by Gizmochina) has surfaced online revealing that the smartphone will be launched in China on October 24. The device launch is scheduled for 7:00PM local time, which is 4:30PM IST. What’s interesting though is that the device will feature a different name. Instead of Galaxy A9 (2018), the smartphone will be known as Galaxy A9s in China.

As for the rest of the specifications, the Samsung smartphone flaunts a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with 2220×1080 pixels resolution, and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM. There is 128GB storage on board, which can be expanded up to 512GB using a microSD card.
