The Galaxy A9 measures 161.7 x 80.9 x 7.4 mm, weighs 200 grams, and is built around a metal frame - just like the new Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016). Powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 (or, rather, 652) processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, the new handset has a fingerprint scanner embedded in its home button, and currently runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
One of the highlight features of the Galaxy A9 is its 4000 mAh battery, which will hopefully provide excellent usage times. The smartphone further offers LTE connectivity, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, 32 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.
There's no word on how much Samsung will ask for the Galaxy A9, and neither on exactly where it's going to be released (besides China). Last week, the handset was approved by the FCC, so we might, at some point, see it on sale in the US. We'll let you know more about the A9 as soon as new details arrive.
