New Samsung Galaxy A9 images leak out revealing a 6-inch screen and a 4000 mAh battery
Until now, we heard quite many things about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9, including the fact that the handset would sport a 5.5-inch display. It turns out that this isn't true, as the upcoming smartphone is actually larger, having a pretty big 6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen.

Thanks to several leaked images that seem to have originated from Samsung China, we know not just the fact that the Galaxy A9 sports a 6-inch display, but also that it's got a battery to match such a large screen: a 4000 mAh one. Moreover, the handset features a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, fingerprint scanner, an octa-core Snapdragon 620 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage space.

The Galaxy A9 is obviously part of Samsung's Galaxy A 2016 series (which also includes the second generation Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7), thus being built around a metal frame.

It's said that the Samsung Galaxy A9 will be released later this month, or in January 2016, first in China. The smartphone could cost around $450, apparently running Android Lollipop at launch (though we expect an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow to be available shortly after that). Would you be interested in buying the Galaxy A9?

I would be interested as well if Samsung gave better Software Support. I feel like that you really need to get the flagship from Samsung in order to enjoy the device for 3 to 4 years. Nexus Series FTW!

450? In Hungary the old A7 is still $450... So I don't know, how much will it cost in the US, but I am sure, that in Europe it will be over $500 at launch. Bad luck for us, I think :(

Samsung should keep only the A, S and Note series.

It makes since for them to also have E and J, for lower-mid range (like Moto G), and low-end (like Moto E)

This kills all hope of the A8 having the 7420.

The 620's CPU probably performs better But the 7420's GPU probably performs better

are you drunk ? how the heck the sd 620 cpu is better than ex7420 ex 7420's cpu is better than the sd 810's one then you want ti say that sd 620 is better than sd 810 what a joke !!

The 620's CPU is 4x A72 cores and 4x A53, albeit 28nm or 20nm (process is uncomfirmed) Vs 4x A57 cores and 4x A53 14nm on the 7420 Vs 4x A57 cores and 4x A53 20nm on the 810 Highly likely the 620 will be better than the 7420 in terms of CPU And basically certain the 620 will be better than the 810 in terms of CPU

I hope Samsung is learning its lesson about bigger batteries now. This is a good start.

Not quite flagship level but great to see a capable 6" phone. This gives hope for the s7+ and note6 having an equally massive screen so I'm crossing my fingers that Samsung follows through

Lovely, this beauty is for my Dad who will be upgrading from Galaxy Mega 6.3 which was quite awesome too. Hope to get around 50% for trade-in/re-sale.
