Enough of the leaks and the teasing: the Samsung Galaxy A9 is finally here. While the line is positioned at the mid-tier, the Galaxy A9 stretches toward the high-end side of things with its specs.
Let’s jump right into the tale of the tape:
6-inch 1920 x 1080 Super AMOLED display
13 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, 8 megapixel front camera
64-bit Octa-Core Snapdragon 652 chipset
3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage + microSD slot
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
Fingeprint scanner + NFC
And, of course, it’ll be one of the nicest looking mid-range handsets you’ll find thanks to metal craftsmanship. Samsung’s aiming to launch this thing in China by the end of the year. We’re not yet sure on exact pricing, but if you’re outside of China and want to import it expect to pay a bit more than something like the HTC One A9.
