More Samsung Galaxy A9 photos show up, features reconfirmed
Expected to be officially announced in the near future, the Galaxy A9 (model number SM-A900) will become one of Samsung's largest smartphones to date, thanks to its 6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display. Today, the handset was approved by China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center, which means it's ready to be sold in China (though we don't know when this will happen). The Chinese certification body is reconfirming the features of the Galaxy A9, while also revealing new photos of it.

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.

If only the A5 and A7 had the Snapdragon 652 too. The Exynos 7580 in A7(2016) is a step back from the Exynos 5430 in A7 (2015). The GPU is especially weak. The A series is positioned as a premium mid range series just below the flagship devices. They should have equipped it with a processor that complements it, especially considering that they got almost everything else right.

You must give the credit to the original poster at Timesnews.co.uk that posted the listing first.

Is "the original poster at Timesnews.co.uk" the only one in the world who knows how to search TENAA's database? I've been doing this before Timesnews.co.uk even existed. We do give credit where it's due, but this listing was found by me.

i think 6 inch smartphones are still in niche zone.. Quiku q terra still has dimensions of iphone 6 plus but carries 6 inch screen rather than 5.5 one.

my vivo xplay 3s with 6inch screen is smaller than nexus 6p, lg v10 and iphone 6plus... smaller screen size doesnt mean phone is smaller over all and bigger display doesnt mean it is very big... I have seen very few people, complaining about the lagger size of iphone 6plus... I hope apple, lg and google will learn to make smaller bezels and will come up with extreamly small bezels
