Samsung Galaxy A9 specs, pictures LEAKED!
While Galaxy A9 Pro seems to be the tallest phablet to be launched this year, it's specs suggest that apart from a half-a-foot display and a 4GB RAM, the phone isn't really premium and like the rest of the Galaxy A phones, will be at best a capable mid-ranger.
As per the AnTuTu benchmark spotted by Sammobile, Galaxy A9 Pro will feature a Full HD display, 32GB of internal storage, a 4GB RAM, a Snapdragon 652 processor with an Adreno 510 GPU, a 4,000 mAh battery, a microSD slot and a 16MP rear camera. The phone will be the third from Samsung to sport the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS after Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones.
Detailed specifications of Samsung's Galaxy A9 was also leaked back in November via GeekBench. As per details available on GeekBench, Galaxy A9 will rock a Snapdragon 620 (MSM8976) processor with four Cortex A-53 CPU cores and four Cortex A-72 cores. It will also contain an Adreno 510 GPU as well. The phone was also slated to feature 32GB of internal storage. 3GB of RAM, 16MP and 5MP cameras as well as a 6-inch Super AMOLED display.
Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge: Hands-on review
Even though the specifications of both phones are quite similar, we doubt that the Galaxy A9 will feature a 6-inch display, for if that were to happen, there won't be any need for Samsung to launch another 6-inch phone at the same time. However, an inferior RAM and processor suggests that Galaxy A9 won't need powerful engines to run a gigantic display.
Apple's 4-inch iPhone 5se may curb faltering iPhone 6s sales
Samsung's mid-range phones may also face a number of challenges in the coming days, principally from Apple's upcoming iPhone 5SE. The new 4-inch iPhone is expected to feature a small display coupled with a number of latest features like the new iOS 9, better cameras, the latest A9 chip, Live Photos and NFC to support Apple Pay. It may also serve up a double boost for Apple by convincing users of older iPhones to switch to a low cost option and also attract phone users who still love smaller displays.
