The waiting is over because, starting today, Samsung Galaxy A9 is finally going live. The mid-positioned device looks very high-end and its specs don’t look too shabby either.
Official spec list for Galaxy A9:
6-inch 1920 x 1080 Super AMOELD Display
3GB of RAM
32GB of storage plus microSD slot
64-bit Octa-Core Snapdragon 652 chipset
13MP rear camera with OIS
8MP front camera
4,000 mAh battery
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
Fingerprint scanner plus NFC.
Samsung Galaxy A9 is one of the better looking phones out there, although it is not a flagship. Its metal unibody manages to help it look as stylish as possible. The device will launch in China in the following days and the rest of the world may follow next year. No new on pricing yet, folks!
Samsung Galaxy A9 just leaked today and it seems that the Samsung security department should be more careful because yesterday it was the Galaxy S7 Plus renders, today is another device and tomorrow it could be their world domination plans for all we know.
Batteries are at the core of devices and they have become a common problem lately because of various situations. First, batteries became non-replaceable, now smartphones are getting thinner and thinner and batteries are getting smaller and smaller. It appears that Samsung decided to go against the trend this time as the next Galaxy A flagship device will have a significantly bigger battery.
Samsung Galaxy A9 details leaked in some documents and, thanks to Phandroid, we can tell you what’s what. A9 has mid-range specs with a high-end finish and it is powered by a much larger battery than other devices.
Possible Galaxy A9 specs:
6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display
Snapdragon 620 processor
13MP primary camera
4,000 mAh battery
The only possible letdown for this device is the OS it comes packed with; we were hoping for Android 6.0 Marshmallow by the time the smartphone launches, but it seems we will have to settle with Lollipop. This device will be part of the line of A devices which includes the previously announced A7, A5 and A3.
A9 also includes a fingerprint scanner in order to give support to Samsung Pay. All things considered, the device is a pretty high-end looking smartphone with a mid-range processor.
Now comes the bad news, as the device will launch in China in January and there is no release date for the rest of the world. The price tag is set at CNY 3,000.
