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

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.

Why the leaked A9 2016 have SD 620, which is slower than SD 810. But the leaked A8 2016 have Exynos 7420, which is faster than SD 810.

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

The adreno 330 in the 800 or 801?

Qualcomm should have gone with the 20nm process for Snapdragon 620 given that the 820 will have a 14nm and 430 will have 28nm chips.

Let's hope that GPU will match its CPU.

Chinese phones with Sd620 chipset most likely will go below 250 us dollar next year.

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.

Its still 28nm cpu and the gpu is joke, i would not give more than 300$ for this

The GPU is good for midrange, the S615 got ~ 15 fps in t-rex and I've seen this one get 31. So a 100% increase not too shabby

If its 250$ its good but for a lot less than 500$ you can find way better performance. Maybe for low midrange is ok.

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
