As far as the other specs are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy A9 has a 6.3-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with minimal bezels. The phone is powered by an octa-core processor of unknown make. In Malaysia, the handset comes in two RAM and storage configurations – 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB. However, the India listing page only mentions the 6GB RAM variant, and says “8GB RAM option available in certain countries.” This suggests the smartphone may come with 6GB of RAM, at least initially. 

Software-wise, the Galaxy A9 boots Android Oreo with Samsung’s Experience UI on top. The connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, and A-GPS. A rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is available for security on board. Lastly, a 3,800mAh battery with fast charging support keeps the whole package alive.
