We’ve been coming across a number of leaks involving the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy A9, revealing what the device has to offer under the hood. However, we are yet to see what the device will ultimately look like, until now.
Alleged Samsung Galaxy A9 images
The images seen above, which seem to have come from Samsung China, were leaked by Chinese-speaking micro-blogging site Weibo. Initially, it was believed that the Samsung Galaxy A9 would feature a 5.5-inch screen. However, if these images are authentic, it would seem that the device will rock a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) instead. Additionally, the images reveal the A9’s battery capacity, which was a mystery in the past. The images reveal that the device will sport a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Lastly, it was believed that the A9’s camera combo would consist of a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The images, however, reveal that the device will feature a smaller 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, but a bigger 8-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat.
The rest of the Samsung Galaxy A9’s specs are believed to be 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, under the hood, support for 4K video recording, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB) for additional storage options, and a fingerprint scanner. It is expected to run Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, but we’re expecting the device to be updated to Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) soon after.
As for the Galaxy A9’s design, just like other smartphones in Samsung’s Galaxy A9 series such as the new Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016), the images reveal that the device features a metal frame.
So when is Samsung planning to launch the Galaxy A9? According to reports, the device will be available in between the months of December of this year and January of next year. It is expected to be available first in China for the equivalent of around £300.
