Samsung introduced last week the long-awaited Galaxy A9 smartphone in China. The details pertaining to price and release date were not revealed. However, now, a report from China shows the price tag of the device.
According to a Weibo update, the Samsung Galaxy A9 will set the buyers back by RMB 3,199 in China. This amount translates to nearly $492 at today’s exchange rate.
Spec-wise, Fone Arena said that the Galaxy A9 features a humongous 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display, bundled with 1080p screen resolution. Samsung has made use of 2.5D curved glass to get the seamless edge look. There is a metal frame covering the sides and the back of the device is made of glass, similar to the flagship Galaxy S6.
Under the hood, an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 652) processor powers the handset, while Android 5.1 Lollipop OS takes care of the software side of things. Interested buyers need not worry because Samsung will upgrade this device to Marshmallow eventually.
When it comes to camera specification, there is a 13-megapixel rear-facing sensor with support for OIS and LED flash. In addition, a generous 8-megapixel secondary snapper has been mounted at the front for selfies.
The highlight of the device is the dual SIM capability with one dedicated nano SIM slot and the other doubles as a microSD slot. Speaking of memory, this handset comes backed by a cool 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage space. Apart from the standard connectivity options, the handset also supports 4G LTE.
Furthermore, the Galaxy A9 comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded on the home button. A powerful 4,000 mAh battery unit with rapid charging capability is also on board.
Readers should, however, note that Samsung has not confirmed the Galaxy A9 price thus far.
