This 6-inch handset is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, formerly known as 620, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, microSD support, and has a generous 4000 mAh battery.

After months in the rumor mill, the Samsung Galaxy A9 phablet is finally official. Unfortunately, this 6-inch Android Lollipop-powered device has only been unveiled in China, and there is no information on its international availability and pricing yet.

Samsung Galaxy A9 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 (formerly known as Snapdragon 620)
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 6-inch Super AMOLED multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front and 13 MP back with f/1.9 and OIS
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual-SIM, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with GLONASS, NFC, microUSB 2.0
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop (Android 6.0 Marshmallow update expected soon)
  • Battery: 4000 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0

Although the Galaxy A9 is not a top-tier handset, it comes with a fingerprint reader and will probably get Samsung Pay support as well. Its price in China should be around $460 USD. We will get back to it as soon as Samsung announces it for the rest of the world, probably in January at CES.

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.
