Since this 6-inch handset has just cleared the FCC, it is very likely to see it unveiled in early January during CES.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 has been in the rumor mill for a while and now its official unveil seems closer than ever. This 6-inch Android handset has been spotted clearing the FCC, so an official announcement might come in a few days or - safest bet - in early January, at CES.

The specs of this phablet include a 13 MP main camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 SoC with Adreno 510 graphics, 3 GB of memory, as well as a fingerprint scanner. Despite its size, the Super AMOLED screen will only offer 1,920X1,080 pixels. All in all, these reveal a mid-range device, but its strongest parts are the 4000 mAh battery and the same metal and glass build that Samsung uses in its flagship devices.

Although previous rumors also mentioned that Galaxy A9 would launch with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board, we hope to see it hit the market with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If this mid-ranger does not make it to CES, it should be unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked event scheduled for late February, the day before the start of MWC 2016 in Barcelona.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
