Newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy A9 scores 73,592 on AnTuTu
Last week, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy A9 had been unveiled by the manufacturer. The device is equipped with a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 652 SoC under the hood (formerly the Snapdragon 620) contains an octa-core 1.8GHz CPU, and the Adreno 510 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside.

The Galaxy A9 is considered the high-end of the Galaxy A series, and was put through the AnTuTu benchmark test. The result was a score of 73,592. That puts the phone in the same neighborhood as two flagship models. One is the Sony Xperia Z5 (which is powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset), and the other is the HTC One M9. The latter is also equipped with the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Those two units had AnTuTu scores of 76,862 and 79,965, respectively.

The unofficial leader at the moment on AnTuTu with a tally of 133,357, is the highly spec'd LeTV LeMax Pro (X9120). That phone is powered by the brand new Snapdragon 820 chipset, which carries a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside. The official leader on the AnTuTu leaderboard is the Huawei Mate 8. Huawei's high-end handset scored 92,746, and is driven by the home-grown Kirin 950 SoC. The chip contains an octa-core 2.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. 4GB of RAM is aboard.


Thanks for the tip!

I just hope the editors of PA and other so-called tech sites are half as 'ordinary' as yourself.

Antutu is worthless. On 2nd thought, it's worse than worthless.

IMA stick with the old Antutu v5 score and give this around a 63k...all the scores now appears to be like so boosted, seeming all types of manufacturers getting that cheat sheet cheese

Antutu 6.0 has different evaluating system, now it rates single core score, UI rendering and GPU speed in 1:1:1 proportion. I think it's better than before because you can't increase your score with multiple weak cores and rubbish GPU like Mediatek.

PhoneArena DOES realize that AnTuTu was recently changed? A Nexus 6P scores over 120K in that benchmark now. So, if this device scores 75, then it's probably NOT an 810.

6P scores around 90k points in Antutu 6.0, other SD810 phones score around 80-85k. 73k is slightly below 810 level but it's still very impressive result.

73 k on new AnTuTu ain't that impressive. That's less than what my G4 gets

G4 scores about 68k points on Marshmallow.

Yeah. LG had bad couple years after the G2. This mid range is kicking the G4's ass. But LG will turn it around next year. Like their V10 but same specs as G4. Now if HTC would get back on track it will be a great year for tech.

Hard to believe that it is 73k . I expected 100k because of the 4*A72.
4*A72 should make it faster than SD810.
I too think antutu can't be trusted now.
Maybe Samsung downclocked or underpower the processor to make it not pass the S6.

exactly what i thought

what makes it even worse is that this is antutu 6 not 5 and the resolution is FHD .. so in antutu 5 it may score something like 50k - 55k which is not expected at all from a72 cores .. but in reality it is actually expected .. samsung won't make a high end midranger surpass its flagships (any company wont do that like hauwei with the mate 8 for example)

OR .. something is wrong here and this is not the a9 results

It has A72 cores made in 28nm process, clocked at 1,8GHz. It's a higher midrange processor. Kirin 950 has four A72 cores made in 16nm process and clocked at 2,3GHz and it still can't reach 100k.

S652 has decent CPU, but GPU Andreno 510 is sligly weaker than even Andreno 4180

Good to see it sports 3GB of RAM.

This will be one of the BEST mid-range device in 2016.
I hope Samsung will give it a reasonable price.
