6-inch Samsung Galaxy A9 Goes Official

Samsung has just rolled out one of its most impressive A series phones so far; it’s a 6-inch phablet dubbed Samsung Galaxy A9. It was unveiled in China at the company’s Galaxy A Party 2016 event. We’ve been introduced to the device before owing to leaks. But it’s nice to see it go official finally.

The thing is, you’re gonna need bigger pockets. Well, at the least the Samsung Galaxy A9 is not as unwieldy as the LeTV LeMax Pro is rumored to be. The price of the Samsung smartphone is yet to be revealed, as well as details on its availability in markets apart from China.

We can at least dig into the Galaxy A9’s specifications for now. Samsung has put a 6-inch 1080p full HD Super AMOLED screen with 2.5D curved glass on its front and crowned it with an 8MP camera. Complementing the latter is a 13MP rear snapper with optical image stabilization.

3GB RAM and a 64-bit octa core Snapdragon 652 processor do all the heavy lifting here. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy A9 makes do with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 instead of Marshmallow. Since users are likely to fall short of the 32GB memory aboard, up to 128GB expandability is supported via its microSD card slot.
