Samsung Galaxy A9 news: Smartphone gets stamp of approval from FCC, marks release is sooner than later


The long awaited Samsung Galaxy A9 has reportedly passed the mandatory certification for telecommunication devices which might suggest that it might drop soon.

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has purportedly given the South Korean company the green light to produce and eventually launch the Galaxy A9. The device has been thoroughly examined and has now been approved by the FCC. Another Samsung smartphone has also been a bit of a hurdle with the FCC namely the Galaxy A7. The Android phablet was stopped by the same committee on Nov. 27 before it was fully launched on Dec. 2

In the past few weeks, numerous leaks of rumored specs of the new handheld device has been circulating the web. According to these reports, the Galaxy A9 will be featuring a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen that will have 1080p resolution. Inside, the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 620 coupled with 3GB of RAM. The chipset boasts a powerful octa-core 1.8 GHZ processor with 4x Cotrex A72 as well as 4X Cortex A53 cores. Adreno 510 will be the GPU in charge of the vivid graphics for the phone’s display.

The phone will be encased in a built around metal frame with dual 2.5 glass panels which users have already seen in the phone’s other siblings in the 2016 Galaxy A lineup.

Other features of the supposed phone include a 13-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization and bright f1/9 aperture, while its front snapper is an 8-megapixel one which also supports panoramic pictures.

Samsung Galaxy A9 will see the light of day somewhere between January and February. The tech giant might even launch it during the world renowned trade fair Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on Jan. 6.

The new Samsung Galaxy A9 will join in the ranks of the recently released models of the refreshed Galaxy A lineup which includes A3, A5, and A7 models.
