Samsung Galaxy A9


Design and Display

Samsung pioneered the use of metal for its devices with those in the A series range, so it is not really all that surprising seeing the Galaxy A9 sporting an all-aluminium design. The smartphone ranks among the biggest from its Korean maker yet, but its thickness is manageable at just 7.4 millimetres.

Its 6-inch Super AMOLED display features slightly curved 2.5D glass and Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which is a bit low for a screen this huge. Samsung Galaxy A9 has a fingerprint sensor nestled in its home button.

Camera and Storage

In the camera department, the Galaxy A9 packs an impressive pair. There is a 13-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS) on the rear for high quality shots. This is paired with a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for all you selfie lovers.

Samsung Galaxy A9 has very ample onboard storage of 32 GB, further expandable by another 128 GB using a microSD card.

Power and Performance

Samsung Galaxy A9 is ready to serve up awesome performance with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, previously known as Snapdragon 620, running under the hood. The CPU delivers speeds of up to 1.8 GHz and receives support from 3 GB of RAM and an Adreno 510 graphics processor. The level of performance to expect from the large handset has been put in the same range as those of two rival flagships, HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia Z5.

The device will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system – a tad disappointing given the phone is coming several months after the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It will be accompanied by a massive 4000mAh battery that should deliver around one and a half day in talk time.

Pricing and Availability

Samsung Galaxy A9 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Samsung Galaxy A9 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N80,000 to N100,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
