New details on the capstone to Samsung's mainstream Galaxy A series show a FHD display and Snapdragon 620 SoC.

There have been plenty of rumors on the next generation of Galaxy A smartphones. Users are now expecting the Samsung smartphones to carry elegant designs made of both glass and metal. The upcoming generation includes the updated Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7 with no word on the Galaxy A9 until now.

Promotional material from China have leaked showing off the Galaxy A9 and its core specifications. The 6-inch smartphone will reportedly come with a FHD AMOLED display, octa-core Snapdragon 620 SoC, Adreno 510 graphics, and 3 GB RAM.

Unlike the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7, the A9 will have a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera on top of 32 GB eMMC with microSD support, LTE Cat. 7 connectivity, and a 4000 mAh battery. Samsung is expected to formally announce the Galaxy A9 within the coming weeks with flagship S series announcements to follow later in first half of 2016.

A recent leak from T-Mobile revealed plans for Samsung to announce at least 4 smartphones during the first or second quarter of the new year.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
