Samsung Galaxy A9 with Snapdragon 652 benchmarks appear online
Rumors on the Galaxy A9 have been rampant these past couple of months. The latest comes from Chinese tech site mobile-dad.com, which claims to have the first AnTuTu benchmark results on the upcoming octa-core Snapdragon 652 SoC running on the Galaxy A9.
According to the source, the new Qualcomm chip has scored 73592 points in AnTuTu, which is already very close to the Snapdragon 810. The Sony Xperia Z5, for example, scores 76862 points in the same benchmark. While the numbers are remarkable for a mid-range SoC like the Snapdragon 652, AnTuTu scores are not directly comparable between newer and older versions.
The unofficial record holder on the AnTuTu benchmark as of this writing is the LeTV LeMax Pro with a score of 133357 points, which will supposedly carry the Snapdragon 820. The confirmed record holder is the Huawei Mate 8 and its Kirin 950 SoC with a final score of 92746 points. The smartphone was previously only available in Asia, but will make its official debut in parts of Europe in the coming weeks.
As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy A9 offers a 6-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display and 3 GB RAM alongside the new Snapdragon 652 SoC.
