Following a major leak earlier in December, the upcoming mid-tier Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone has just been spotted passing through China’s TENAA certification center. The latest posting confirms many of the earlier leaked specs.
The listing gives us a nice rundown of the Galaxy A9’s hardware specifications. The phone looks set to ship with a 1.8GHz octa-core CPU, possibly the Snapdragon 620. There’s also 6-inch FullHD (1920×1080) AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory. The handset measures 161.7 × 80.9 × 7.4mm and weighs in at 200g.
Previous rumors indicated a 13 megapixel rear camera, 8 megapixel front facing camera, a 4,000mAh battery and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Samsung also seems to have made good on its intentions to bring support for Samsung Pay to its mid-tier devices. There looks to be some pretty decent hardware packed into the Galaxy A9, so long as the price is right.
An updated Galaxy A7 was also recently spotted passing through TENAA, which boasts quite similar specifications. Reference to an A5 refresh was also mentioned by China Mobile and both handsets have been spotted in previous leaks alongside the Galaxy A9. Samsung looks to be preparing some new mid-range handsets for next year, and I’m sure we’ll see more of them next month.
