In their announcement the firm's president of mobile communications, DJ Koh, said: "As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication.

"Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development we're introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation.

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world-leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9."

The phone is set to sit beneath the brands devices, the flagship, Galaxy S9 and Note 9 phones which were released earlier this year as the 'best of its mid-range devices'.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is set to go on sale in November this year starting at £549 - retailing over £200 less than the Galaxy S9.

Big tech companies, like Samsung and Apple, have recently come under fire to release lower-priced devices, especially since Apple launched their premium hand-set phone, the iPhone Xs for £999.
