Galaxy A9 benchmark leaks, confirms Snapdragon 620 with 4K video recording support

Samsung may soon have a brand new model line in its A-series portfolio, the Galaxy A9, which already leaked as having a large, 5.5"+ display, and carrying an octa-core processor, together with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.
The purported Galaxy A9 (SM-A9000) has leaked on Geekbench once again, reiterating a Qualcomm MSM8976 processor on board, which is none other than the new Snapdragon 620, with four Cortex-A72 cores at 1.8 GHz, and four Cortex-A53, clocked at 1.4 GHz. The benchmark leak also confirms that it will carry 3 GB of RAM, too.
The difference compared to the previous A9 leak on Geekbench back in September is that the chipset now seems more attuned to better single-core performance, as the result there is higher, while the multi-core measurements are taking a hit. The Snapdragon 620 processor is by no means a slouch - it is the first processor in the 600 series of Qualcomm that supports 4K video recording, and also comes with the X8 LTE modem that boasts up to 300 Mbps download speeds, if your carrier is up to the task.
In any case, the Galaxy A9 will be a stuffed-to-the-gills midranger, it seems, and we can't wait to see the final design, specs, and, above all, price tag, as Samsung's A-series isn't known for rock bottom pricing.
This is a damn fast chip, flagship grade. Combine that with 3 GB RAM, a good camera and AMOLED screen; this can be an awesome midranger. The only issue can be price. If it's lower than 500$, that's fine. Higher -> meh.

For the 58544th time the A series are not aimed at specs to price ratio! smh They focus more on the build quality and design. Go get a J series phone if you want a samsung with better specs to price ratio

if adreno 505 isnt faster and better than adreno 330 ,snapdragon 620 is not okay. Snapdragon 615 didnt have a great GPU. Adreno 405 sucks and some highend games lag.

It has the adreno 510, not the 505, it is a tiny bit faster than the Adreno 330
