Earlier, the unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9 (SM-A9000) was seen being tested on the GFXBench benchmark database, revealing that the smartphone featured the Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 SoC under the hood. Now, the device has gone through tests on AnTuTu (leaked on Weibo), which also reveals that the Galaxy A9 features the said SoC.

The AnTuTu benchmark result reveals that the Samsung Galaxy A9 carries the model number SM-A9000, runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 620 SoC (MSM8976), features the Adreno 510 GPU to handle graphics, rocks a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, sports 3 GB of RAM, and offers 32 GB of internal storage. Sadly, the smartphone’s camera combo was not mentioned.
Fortunately, the Galaxy A9 was listed by Samsung Iran, revealing most of the device’s specs. It reveals that the smartphone sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). This works out to a pixel density of 401 ppi. Its camera combo consists of a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera to take care of snapping selfies and video chat. The Galaxy A9 features 32 GB of internal storage. If this isn’t enough, it also offers a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB) for additional storage options. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 SoC, which is an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz, and an Adreno 510 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. This CPU supports 4K video recording. Colour options include white ad gold. Like other smartphones in Samsung’s Galaxy A series, the Galaxy A9 is clad in metal. It runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. What wasn’t mentioned in the listing is the A9’s battery capacity.
Unfortunately, the Samsung Iran listing doesn’t show us what the Galaxy A9 looks like. It does, however, reveal that the device will be released on the 1st of December. Well, in Iran at least.
