Samsung Galaxy A9 news: AnTuTu benchmark test gives away specs, no sign of camera info


The long rumored Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone once more surfaced in another benchmark test, this time showing details on some of its major hardware and software specifications.

As revealed by famed smartphone industry leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (@stagueve on Twitter), it was shown in an AnTuTu benchmark test with a model number of SM-A9000. According to the post, the Samsung Galaxy A9 will sport a 5.5-inch wide display with a 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution. It will run under an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 chipset, with Cortex-72 CPUs, and with an Adreno 510 GPU, optimized for 10180p Full HD gaming resolution experience.

The purported Samsung Galaxy A9 packs with it 3 GB worth of RAM, along with 32 GB worth of built-in internal storage capacityan upgrade from its predecessor Galaxy A8. It is unknown whether the device will have support for an external microSD expansion or not.

Oddly enough, the AnTuTu benchmark test was not able to provide the camera properties for both the main rear camera as well as the front facing camera of the device. The device ran Android Lollipop 5.1.1 during the test.

Another Samsung device that has been very hot on the rumor mill is upcoming massively huge 18.4-inch wide tablet that is currently on the works by Samsung, and now, it’s getting closer and closer to reality, as the rumored device was recently spotted as having cleared the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and as what the information from the database have revealed, is headed to carrier AT&T.

According to the FCC records, the Commission has recently approved a tablet with the model number SM-T677A, a close resemblance to the previously leaked SM-T670 model number. The device will also be heading to AT&T, indicated by the “A” suffix on the model number, as well as the carrier logo on the device’s body that can be found on the FCC database.
