South Korean tech conglomerate Samsung is all set to launch the Samsung Galaxy A9 in India on November 20. The smartphone features four rear cameras which is a first for the company and will be launched as a Flipkart exclusive device in the country.

As mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy A9 will be available exclusively via Flipkart from November 20 and it comes with a price tag of Rs 34,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage space. Just like other Samsung devices, it will also be available for purchase from Samsung brand stores and authorized Samsung device resellers across the country after its launch.
Coming to the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A9 comes with a full glass unibody design with a metallic mid-frame. It features a 6.3-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and protected on the top by 2.5D curved tempered glass.

The internal storage can be further upgraded with the help of a micro-SD card up to a maximum of 512GB with dedicated dual nano-SIM card slots that supports 4G VoLTE connectivity.
