Samsung Galaxy A9 is the latest, biggest premium phone Samsung has made. No, not the Note5, even that
one is dwarfed by the Samsung Galaxy A9 and its 6″ Super AMOLED screen.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 is a new addition to the Galaxy A lineup (the original topped out with the 5.7″ A8) and
is undeniably the star of the Galaxy A series. It has a massive 6″ Super AMOLED and it
outruns the other As with a Snapdragon 652 chipset (an early taste of the latest Cortex-A72 processor).
There are little things too, like doubling the internal storage to 32GB, bumping the battery to
4,000mAh, upping the selfie camera to 8MP and even bringing faster LTE.
