This phone can certainly be a front runner in the same category of phones. The color palette and display are those two reasons why Samsung Galaxy A9 will be held high, above most expensive phones. But again here, there’s a huge amount that can be saved. It is okay to choose niche flagships or even spend something extra or get a top notch phone.

Samsung Galaxy was launched in the year 2018 and works on Android 8 OS. This phone can be found in 3 color options: black, blue and pink and built on fingerprint sensor, working as the primary most feature.   A large host of connectivity options in terms of 3G, 4G, GPS, Wifi Bluetooth and other capabilities can be found in this phone handset.
