Samsung has introduced a number of ‘Galaxy A’ devices in the last couple of weeks. The Korea-tech giant has unveiled their second-generation Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 devices not long ago, and that announcement was followed by the announcement of the first-gen Galaxy A9 device about a week ago in China. All of these devices are made out of metal, but they sport different internals, and different sizes. Keep in mind that this is Samsung’s mid-range line of devices, even though they did pick up Galaxy S6’s design cues.
That being said, first post-launch Galaxy A9 benchmark scores have surfaced. To be more precise, the Galaxy A9 was benchmarked using AnTuTu’s benchmarking app, and according to the provided results, the device has managed to score 73,592 points on the test, which is quite good actually, especially considering this smartphone is powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core SoC. This processor is actually clocked at 1.8GHz, and it comes with an Adreno 520 GPU for graphics. The Galaxy A9 is Samsung’s newest phablet, and the most powerful Galaxy A device this company has ever released. In AnTuTu’s list, the Galaxy A9 is placed right below the Snapdragon 810-powered Sony Xperia Z5, a device which scored 76,862 points.

The Galaxy A9 sports a 6-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). The 13-megapixel OIS shooter can be found on the back of the Galaxy A9, and an 8-megapixel snapper is available up front. The 4,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is non-removable. Speaking of which, you’ll be able to take advantage of a fast charging tech in order to charge this battery quickly, and the device also ships with two SIM card slots. The Galaxy A9 ships with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI installed on top of it. The device will be available in Gold, White and Pink color options, in case you were wondering.
