Samsung Galaxy A9 leaks ahead of launch: 4000mAh battery, 6-inch display
Samsung’s Galaxy A9 has been having trouble staying out of the rumor mill lately, and that’s certainly the case with today’s news. A handful of official promotional pictures have leaked out, giving us a glimpse at the upcoming addition to Samsung’s Galaxy A line.
According to the promo pictures, the Galaxy A9 will feature a 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 620 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion and support for Samsung Pay. It will also sport a massive 4,000mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, allowing you to top up your battery in a fraction of the time. It’ll also come with a 13MP rear camera with OIS and an f/1.9 aperture, as well as an 8MP front camera. Unfortunately folks waiting to get their hands on this smartphone won’t even get a chance to use the latest version of Android. According to the leaked materials, it will launch with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The device will come with a fingerprint scanner mounted in the home button below the display.
We have no doubt that the device will be more than capable of performing everyday tasks with ease thanks to the Snapdragon 620 CPU and 3GB of RAM, but it might be a little difficult to enjoy your games and videos on such a low resolution display. Full HD panels are perfectly fine for devices with screens measuring 5.0 inches or so, but pixels are definitely noticeable on Full HD displays measuring 6.0 inches.
Along with the leak of the Galaxy A9, there are also a few leaked specs for the 2016 Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 smartphones. The A5 will come with 5.2-inch Super AMOLED Full HD panel, and the A7 will sport a slightly larger 5.5-inch screen. The former will come with a 2900mAh battery and the latter will come with a 3300mAh battery, as well.
It seems as though someone has already gotten their hands on a couple of these devices and posted a video showing them off side by side. Head to this link to watch the Galaxy A9 and 2016 Galaxy A7 in video.
Samsung could launch these new devices within the next month or so. Are you interested? Let us know what you think in the comments.
