The South Korean company, earlier this month, unveiled the second-generation Galaxy A-series smartphones including the Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016). The Galaxy A9 is said to be marketed as the biggest sibling of the same series.
For specifications leaked in promotional images (via Mobile.It), the metal-clad Samsung Galaxy A9 is said to feature a 6-inch Super Amoled display with a full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) resolution. This contradicts to the Galaxy A9's company listing that suggested 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) resolution Super Amoled display. The leaked promotional images also suggest different camera sensors of 13-megapixel on the back and 8-megapixel on the front for the Galaxy A9. Samsung had earlier listed the Galaxy A9 with a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera on board.
Rest of the specifications tipped are same as the official listing that surfaced last month. It packs a Snapdragon 620 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz coupled with 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of built-in storage and features 4G LTE support. Other connectivity options of the Galaxy A9 include GPS, NFC, FM radio, Micro-USB 2.0, and Wi-Fi. One of the highlight features could be the handset's large 4000mAh battery. In one of the promotional images, the Galaxy A9 is seen with reverse charging support. The leaked images also claim that the Galaxy A9 will sport Samsung Pay and will pack fingerprint scanner. The handset is expected to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
We will have to wait for Samsung's official announcement regarding the launch and availability of the Galaxy A9 smartphone.
