Samsung Galaxy A9 Becomes official with 6-inch FHD display and a massive 4000mAh battery
The Samsung Galaxy A9 packs an elegant metal frame and glass back parallel to the Galaxy S series smartphones. It houses a massive 6-inch full HD AMOLED display with the screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The screen is hardly protected with a 2.5D curved glass and the side bezels are minimal to 2.74mm making the thinnest handset ever made.
The handset runs on Snapdragon 652 (previously 620) octa-core processor clubbed with 3GB of RAM alongside Adreno 510 GPU and 32GB expandable inbuilt storage. A 13-megapixel sensor is equipped on the rear of the phone with f/1.9 aperture and optical image stabilization. On the front, it sports an 8-megapixel camera.
The smartphone packs an extra larger 4000mAh battery which typically beats its size can be topped up in a flash, thanks to the Quick Charging technology. There’s a fingerprint sensor under the home button with Samsung Pay support. Connectivity wise, it includes 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v 4.1, ANT+, NFC.
Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy A9 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, which we didn’t expect on a premium handset. There’s no word about the price and availability of the phone. Presumably, the handset will be available to buy early next year.
