Purported specs of the Samsung Galaxy A9 leak, might be a well-endowed 5.5" mid-ranger


Rumors about a new Galaxy smartphone that Samsung might release sometime in the indefinite future have just popped up. The purported new star in the galaxy (or should we say the new Galaxy in Sammy's universe) has appeared in a leaked AnTuTu benchmark screenshot under the SM-A9000 alias. It's speculated that this device could end up being a new addition to the Galaxy A lineup — the Galaxy A9 in particular.

Judging from the rumored specs, it might be an upper mid-range newcomer that will sport a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 620 (MSM8976) paired with an Adreno 510 GPU, as well as 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The AnTuTu leak also shows that the device might sport a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The handset is running Android 5.1.1 out of the box.

The more memorable ones among you might remember that alleged Geekbench 3 results allegedly achieved by Galaxy A9 stormed our news section roughly a month ago. The benchmark scores it allegedly achieved were 1325 in the single-core test and 4461 in the multi-core one, which is actually very neat. As a comparison, the Snapdragon 810-equipped HTC One M9 and OnePlus 2 achieved 3738 and 3673 points in the multi-core test, as well as 1112 and 876 points in the single-core one, respectively.

The A9 Doesn't Seem Half Bad.

The price will kill it. More than $300 is a no buy. there are way better options

More Than $300 Is A No Buy LOL, The Sd620 is Basically A Sd808. And The Moto X Pure/Style Is Going For $400. If The A9 Is Less Than $400 I'll Be Surprised. The A8 Is $475 To Put In Perspective.

SD620 is the successor to SD615, so the pricing should be the same or a bit higher than SD615 devices not SD808. But judging from Samsung's way of pricing, it's very likely to go pass $300 mark.

Yeah I Know That's Why I Referenced The Price Of The A8 Cause Its Powered By The 615 And It Cost $475 The A9 Will Be $400+, No Doubt.

SD620 i much more powerful than SD615, it's also faster than SD808, then why it should be cheaper? It belongs to 600 series but it's a higher model than 615.

Snapdragon 620 it is not a Snapdragon 808, it's more powerful. Snapdragon 620 are 4 A72 cores at 1.8GHz and other 4, A53 at 1.4GHz. The GPU must be, more or less, of the same performance of Adreno 430.

Yeah But It's Gpu Is That Of The 808 Those A72 Cores Are Wasted. Its Overall Performance Will Be Similar To The 808 So That's Why I Said What I Said.

Cores are used while gaming, with newer protocols and better optimalization SD620 is going to be both faster and less power hungry than SD808. For less money.

I'm feeling like no matter what but PA's going to give this non-iPhone beast the score 5.5 again. Previously, its predecessor's got only 6.5.

I don't believe in that. I think that with these specs will be 8.

HTC Samsung Areo A9. Midrange.

I think even Adreno 510 should be better than 430 altough there are no benchmarks yet.

Thank you. Yep I was wrong, 430 is still little bit better.

Excellent, the scores are on par with Adreno 418. As an overall SoC, SD620 can bring 2015 flagship experience in a midrange package, as long as the screen resolution is below QHD.

11. Felix_Gatto

Posts: 942; Member since: Jul 03, 2013

I mean the screen resolution is not higher than FHD.

35. may_czos

Posts: 955; Member since: Nov 22, 2014

Actually, scores are a little bit below Adreno 418.

At least they are better than Adreno 330

So the 620 is pretty much as powerful as the 810 on the CPU front, and more powerful on single core.

25. lpratas

It's more powerful than 810 on the CPU front, because the 810 it's A57 and 620 it's A72.

Not as fast. It's based on 28 nm v/s 20 nm for 810.

36. may_czos

Posts: 955; Member since: Nov 22, 2014

It's a fast even though it's based on older manufacturing process.

29. may_czos

It's as fast as properly optimized 810 in the Z5 but with slower GPU. Fairly impressive for a (higher)midranger.

Wow, sd 810 gets destroyed by a mid-ranger - a new level of failure. GJ qualcom.

What is your logic? SD810 was a mistake, so it's a good news they learned from that mistake with SD620 and SD820. A horse wouldn't fall into the same hole twice.

Why you are not appreciating such a big progress like this?
