Samsung announced new versions of its semi-budget A series phones earlier this month, and now it's dropping one more model into the mix. The Galaxy A9 will be the most premium of the lot with a 6-inch 1080p AMOLED and a 4000mAh battery.
In addition to the big screen and battery, the Galaxy A9 will have a 2.5D curved glass front and slim 7.4mm profile. On the back is a 13MP camera with an f/1.9 aperture and on the front is an 8MP camera. The A9 will run the octa-core Snapdragon 652 (formerly the 620) with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Owners will also enjoy a microSD card slot, which you don't get on Samsung's current flagship devices. The A9 will have support for Samsung Pay and a fingerprint sensor as well.
The A9 will run Android 5.1.1 when it launches in China in the coming weeks. There's no price available, but it's supposed to expand to other markets eventually along with the other A series devices. We'll probably hear more about it at that time.
