Samsung Galaxy A9 appears on company's Iranian website with December 1st launch date
Just the other day, the unannounced Samsung Galaxy A9 appeared on a Geekbench benchmark test, revealing that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 620 chipset carrying an octa-core CPU. The Adreno 510 GPU handles graphics. The Qualcomm SoC supports 4K video, which is something for you to consider once this device is released. And that could happen in less than a week.  A new leak from the official Samsung Iran website reveals that the Galaxy A9 will launch on December 1st.

The phone will offer a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 401ppi. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can turn to the 128GB capacity microSD slot that is on board. A 16MP camera appears on back, while the 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A non-removable battery of unspecified capacity keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. Available in black, white and gold, the Galaxy A9 features a metal build.

While the listing didn't include a image of the phone, keep in mind that December 1st is coming up next Tuesday. We should be seeing more information about the Galaxy A9 very soon.


Thanks for the tip!

It's a GS6 with microSD, bigger(albeit 1080p) screen and SD 820. Not bad for a 2016 midranger.

No its not a Galaxy S6 in anyway .. the Chipset is Snapdragon and not Exonys. Also, this phone has a metal build as well as a micro SD support ..

I call this the S6 Neo...to think about it fits perfectly. I kinda dislike how its a 620 with no QC 3.0 possibility.

Wonder How Good The GPU Is? If Its At Least As Good As The Adreno 418 Found In The Sd808 Then This Phone Will Be Pretty Good.

Those Scores Aren't Bad At All. The 620 Will Make For A Pretty Good Mid-Ranged Soc.

Another midranger, hey Samsung: why not the Note Pro or S6 pro, with 50% upgrade with CPU and GPU?

As a note 4 owner samsung needs to focus on high flag ship and just midrange but not too crazy amount of midrange devices. Make TW cleaner and lighter I'm sure they will do good but they are trying way to hard.. kept it simple
