The unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9 (model number SM-A900) has been heavily leaked as of late, indicating that the device will make its official debut soon. Now, the smartphones has been certified in China.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 was approved by TENNA, China’s equivalent of the US FCC and a known source of information on yet to be announced devices. The Chinese authority is known for posting photos and revealing specs of device before they go official, which is exactly the case here.
Apart from the images seen above, China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center also reveals what the Samsung Galaxy A9 has to offer. It reveals that the device features a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which makes the device Samsung’s largest smartphone to date. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 or 652 SoC, which is a 1.8 GHz octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It features 32 GB of internal storage. If this isn’t enough, users can always make use of a microSD card for additional storage options. The Galaxy A9 supports 4G LTE connectivity. To keep the lights on, the device features a 4,000 mAh battery that allegedly lasts a very long time. In terms of design, it is built around a metal frame just like the new Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016). It measures 161.7 x 80.9 x 7.4 mm and weighs in at 200 g. Unfortunately, it runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box and not Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
Since the Samsung Galaxy A9 has been approved by China’s TENAA, we’re more than certain that the device will make its official debut in China soon. Pricing is yet to be determined.
