After HTC announced the HTC A9, looks like Samsung is set to bring a variant of A9, under its own brand name too. With a new phone launch happening virtually every week, can you blame OEMs that they seem to have run out of model numbers to give their devices now? Maybe it’s time to introduce new letters in the English language just to tackle this. Anyway, as aforementioned, the existence of the Samsung Galaxy A9 has pretty much been confirmed after a couple of benchmark tests gave away the scores of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 will succeed the Galaxy A8 as the flagship bearer of the A series of devices of Samsung. The A series primarily is aimed at mid-range budget consumers, who like their phones to have that bit of style and oomph without paying the absolute dollar for it. The A series currently sits between the On series and Galaxy S series of devices.
The latest addition to the list, the A9 has been leaked in a Geekbench benchmark result. According to the leaked screenshot, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 620 SoC, which is an Octa-Core chipset with LITTLE.big architecture. The phone is expected to bring a 5.5 inch- Full HD display, and it would be interesting to see how the Snapdragon 620 puts up with that display, given the well-known struggles of the Snapdragon 615 when powering 1080P displays on devices like Mi4i and Motorola Moto X Play. Earlier leaked out AnTuTu listing of the phone also confirmed that the latest phone from Samsung will feature 3 GB of RAM alongside 32 GB of internal memory which would be a good news for those who are driven by the performance of the devices and may have some reservations against the combination of Snapdragon 620, a 1080P display and TouchWiz.
