Speaking about the smartphone's highlight, it features a quad-camera setup at the rear.

In previous reports, it has been suggested that the "budget" Galaxy S10 may feature an "Infinity-O" display.

The Galaxy A9 features digital assistant Bixby, Samsung Pay and Samsung Health. The phone has a glass body design with a metal chassis. It is reported that the new display panels will come with not just one but two holes where one will be available for the front-facing, selfie camera, the other one will be provided for the infrared sensor.
