We aren’t really expecting any new releases from Samsung anytime soon for the rest of the 2015 year, as the Galaxy S7 and its 3 other variants are expected to be announced early next year, either at MWC 2016 or previewed at Samsung’s own held event.
There’s been talk about some new additions to Samsung’s Galaxy A line-up, and that’s the Galaxy A9. The Galaxy A8 was previously leaked on Weibo, and pictures/relevant specifications were all accurate when it came time for the device to be unveiled earlier this year. As some of you may know, the previous Galaxy A series line-up, which included the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7, have nothing to do with the device(s) we’ll be referencing here. Samsung has opted to refresh the A series, and create the 2016 iteration of the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 devices, presumably with the newly announced Galaxy A9 in store for us.
Another instance of the Galaxy A9 leak came about from a Weibo user from China, detailing the upcoming device’s specifications through its promo specification posters intended for unveiling time.
In terms of hardware, we’re seeing a true phablet sized 6.0 inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 resolution) carrying Samsung’s trademark Super AMOLED display, for sharp colors.
The rest of the specifications include a huge 4000mAh battery to accommodate for the sheer size of the device (with a 6.0 inch display, the device size itself must not be small either) which should result in much better battery life, considering the display resolution isn’t Quad HD or anything power hungry.
On-board the Galaxy A9, in terms of memory and storage, we’re expecting the standard 3GB of Samsung made RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage (may vary) and possibly the addition of a MicroSD slot, inhabited by one of the Dual-SIM slots if Samsung should decide to include this feature.
Other miscellaneous hardware consists of the standard 13 Megapixel primary camera, accompanied by an 8 Megapixel front-facing camera, Samsung’s improved fingerprint scanner, and finally, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 620 (Which is now re-named to the Snapdragon 652 thanks to Qualcomm’s rebranding.)
The Snapdragon 620 (652) is an 8 core mid/high end SoC, boasting 4 of ARM’s next gen A72 cores, delivering superior performance to that of the last gen A57, as well as 4 Cortex A53 cores for efficiency, balanced usage and power saving. There’s also Qualcomm’s next-gen Adreno 510 GPU on board, just a step below the Snapdragon 820’s Adreno 530 GPU.
The Galaxy A9 is also presumably going to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, as it soon becomes mainstream in 2016, carrying a price tag of anywhere between $400-$500 US.
