The Samsung Galaxy A9 has been long rumored like any other Galaxy phone.
The good news is that the device has already been certified by the American government-owned FCC (Federal Communication Commission) and we can be sure that the device will be seen in real now.
The Samsung Galaxy A9, also code named SM-A9000, has been rumored to be a beautiful phone with a wonderful set of specifications.
Users will apparently be treated to a 6.0-inch Super AMOLED screen with a a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass. Under the skin, the power would be driven by Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 CPU and a RAM of 3GB.
Granted, that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 CPU may not sound that great to those looking for more power and 3GB RAM might seem just one GB short of what the users are looking for from their dream phones, but the configuration is just about right and will deal perfectly with all the requirements a user might have.
The internal memory of the phone is purported to be 32GB. I personally like devices with an external memory slot, just because I find it easier to move data when I change my device – I do not have to bear the hassles of taking a back up and transferring the whole thing again.
I can just remove the SD card and get all my important files in my new phone. Thankfully, the A9 is expected to come with a Micro SD card slot – this is a welcome relief for those who actually suffered inconvenience from those phones that were recently launched by Samsung, all with missing external memory slots.
Samsung is preparing to again prepare for a duel with Apple it seems, as the company is going gaga over popularizing Samsung Pay on a very large scale.
Recent reports confirmed that in China, Samsung Pay and Apple pay have both prepared to set foot soon in accordance with UnionPay, that is the most reliable cashless payment service in the country.
The A9 is going to come with the Samsung Pay option, so if you are in China or Hong Kong, you might just be lucky enough.
Another good news that we have been able to get is that of the battery unit.
The A9 will come equipped with a 4,000mAh battery unit, which of course, will not give users scope to crib about quick drainage due to a large screen. 13 MP rear lens is good in Samsung standards and will be a great snapper to shoot pictures with. Selfie lovers will not be disappointed with the 8MP camera.
We now await a time when we can actually see the device in flesh and there is still no update of when this will seen. Expect to see it sometime around early January, as after FCC, almost 3 weeks are taken by the Original Equipment Manufacturers to start with their business.
Consumer Electronics Show, 6 January in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA might be a good place to catch a glimpse of the device.
