galaxy-a9-1The Samsung Galaxy A9 has been making its rounds in the rumor mill for a while now, and the good news is that if you were wondering about the device, wonder no more because it looks like over in China, Samsung has officially announced the handset during the company’s Galaxy A Party 2016 event.

So what does the Galaxy A9 pack under its hood? Turns out the previous rumors and leaks were pretty much right on the money. However just in case you missed out on the news, the Galaxy A9 packs a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 can be found with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD.

It also comes with a 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS and an aperture of f/1.9 which is actually pretty wide for a smartphone camera, and an 8MP front-facing camera to top things off. The phone will also come with a sizeable 4,000mAh battery in it which is rather impressive given how thin (7.4mm) it is.

Unfortunately pricing was not revealed but according to Samsung, the phone is expected to be made available in China later this month and pricing will be determined then. No word on whether it will be making its way to the US or other markets for that matter.
