Samsung announces the Galaxy A9 with a 4,000 mAh battery

As we reported earlier today, Samsung has announced the Galaxy A9 in China today during its Galaxy A Party 2016 event. The Galaxy A9 is the most high-end smartphone in the Galaxy A lineup from Samsung, and it was leaked a number of times in the past few weeks revealing its specifications as well as physical design.

The Galaxy A9 features a huge 6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass, a 13-megapixel primary camera with OIS and ƒ/1.9 aperture, and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and comes equipped with a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, which is coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. There’s a microSD card slot as well and it supports cards of upto 128GB capacity.

Even though the device is just 7.4 mm thin, Samsung has managed to pack in a huge 4,000 mAh battery in it, but its non-removable. However, such a huge battery shouldn’t give anyone a chance to complain. The glass-and-metal design of the Galaxy A9 is similar to what Samsung brought to the table with the Galaxy A5 (2016) and the Galaxy A7 (2016). There’s a fingerprint sensor that’s embedded into the physical home button.

The Galaxy A9, similar to other recently launched high-end devices from Samsung, comes with Samsung Pay. The company also showcased the recently announced Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) during the event along with the Galaxy A9. The device will be available in China later this month with pricing being confirmed at a later date.

For me I like Samsung so much, I just don’t knw why. I like their phones but there are so many tins I hate abt it as well.
A9 coming with lollipop is really not a big deal, it will only be a problem if they don’t make update to android 6 available on time just like I’m stuck with 4.4.2 bcos I still use galaxy mega 6.3. No update to lollipop talk more of marshmallow
Another issue with Samsung is that most of it phones lags.

Samsung is releasing a phone that is already outdated from day 1! However hardware-wise has decent specs for an upper mid-ranger.

They need an A11 at 6.5″ to 7.0″. And make it Project Fi ready.

You just don’t get how developing smartphones work. The were like 95 % in development when 6.0 sources were made available. You really think they than postpone release to make it run MM??? No they will update the phone after release…

Yeah right. Then then they had 6 months to develop it, as Marshmallow was available for developers that long.

It is just pathetic that the top Android manufacturer puts out a new phone with Lollipop when Marshmallow has been available for developers that long and made officially available for 3 months already. I don’t see other major manufacturers having the same problem.

With Samsung’s track record it will also be over 6 months since the A9′s release that it gets updated to 6.0. By then there will also be about 5 updates to Marshmallow to 6.1.5 and the A9 will have 6.0 for another year…

A phone from 0 to a 100% takes 18 months of development. Meaning OS change somewhere down the line would mean delayes. Please read in about phone development. And HTC A9x is one phone. They just put every developer they got on that phone. It isn’t something you can compare.

Offcially Marshmallow was released on Sept 30. I am sure the phone has been in development well before Sept 30.

If Google needs 5 updates in Marshmallow to fix the damn bugs, then it is Google’s fault that they can’t do a prooer OS release. Do you know what chaged in 6.0.1? It is emojis. Yes, they needed another update to add emojis. Don’t go on blaming OEM’s about everything.
