Samsung announces Ultrathin, All-Metal Galaxy A9 in China

Samsung Welcomes Ultrathin, All-Metal Galaxy A9 with 4000 mAh Battery in China

During the Galaxy A Party 2016 event, Samsung announced its most high-end Smartphone in the Galaxy A lineup, Galaxy A9, with 4,000 mAh battery in China. The largest of the Galaxy A-series family of devices has now been announced by Samsung. From past few weeks, Samsung has been revealing the specifications and physical design of the Galaxy A9. The company also showcased the recently announced Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) during the event along with the Galaxy A9.

The new device has been featured with 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. Like all other A series Samsung Smartphones, Galaxy A9 runs on 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. Despite the non-swappable battery, it has also got a microSD slot for expanded storage, conspicuously absent from Samsung’s worldwide flagships this year. The expandable memory slot can support cards of up to 128GB capacity.

Like all other new Smartphones, the huge 4,000 mAh battery is non-removable, but there seems to have no chances of any complaint linked with the use of the device. 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 new Galaxy A9, just 7.4 mm thin, comes with Samsung Pay like other recently launched high-end devices from Samsung.

Initially, the model will be available in gold, white and pink colors, but, curiously, no darker shades. The device can be unlocked, and used for contactless payment, via the home button-embedded fingerprint reader. It has been reported that the device will come in China market later this month with pricing not yet disclosed.
