Pictures of unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9 surface; phone is equipped with rotating camera? (UPDATE)
About a couple of weeks ago, specs for the Samsung Galaxy A9 were allegedly discovered after the SM-A9000 went through the AnTuTu benchmark test. Today, images of the Samsung Galaxy A9 leaked to reveal a device with a rotating camera on top, similar to what we've seen before with the Oppo N1. And check out the front-facing speakers on the phone's "chin."

The Samsung Galaxy A9 is rumored to come with a 5.5-inch screen, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. A Snapdragon 620 chipset is expected to be under the hood, with an octa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 510 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of internal storage. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

The phone is unannounced, so we do suggest that you take these images with a grain of salt. But don't let that stop you from clicking on the slideshow to view what are reportedly pictures of the Galaxy A9.

Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: The pictures appear to belong to a Chinese clone that is available from Alibaba.

Obviously it's some Chinese knock off. Bezels, the capacitive buttons, the box, the screen quality, all are indications that this isn't a Samsung's phone.

Maybe Samsung designed it specifically for the Chinese market. I mean the Chinese market is tough and Samsung needs to fight like hell over there. Of course, it can be fake as well.

It's weird because the capacitive button shapes are samsung style...even the home key (i had the galaxy victory in the past which had a capacitive hone key that looks like that) but that back and huge ass front speaker at the bottom is not samsung design at all....and it has a small speaker on the back too...what..? Maybe this will hint samsung may do something new with the s7?

I just keep noticing more...the volume rock and power button is on the same side... not what samsung does...and the ui on the screen looks nothing like samsungs new touchwiz... and they usually have the app drawer on the bottom right... okay this is too much I'm just gonna call it fake or just another phone they photoshopped samsung on top

It can't be a Samsung product. I am sure it is a knock off Chinese garbage branded in Samsung name.
