The Galaxy A series will soon welcome a new generation of upper mid-range smartphones and until now, three of them have appeared on various website benchmark databases and we know what to expect from their specs. The Galaxy A9 (2017) hasn’t been leaked anywhere, but someone posted on Weibo that the giant phablet is in the works and it will carry a model number of SM-A9200.
We remind you that the specs of the Galaxy A9 (2016) include a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution, a Qaualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 chipset that houses an octa-core (4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 & 4×1.2 GHz Cortex-A53) processor, an Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Also, it has an internal memory of 32GB, which is expandable up to 256GB, a decent primary camera of 13MP on the back, which supports OIS, autofocus and LED flash and a secondary camera for selfies, with a resolution of 8MP. As for the battery, it’s massive, with a capacity of 4000mAh, to handle the large display.
Until now, we don’t know anything about the specs of the A9 (2017), but the device is expected to be released in December, along with the other three smaller brothers which will carry these model numbers: SM-A320F (A3 2017), SM-A520F (A5 2017) and SM-A720F (A7 2017).
The A3 2017 was spotted on GFXBench with the following specs: a 4.7-inch HD screen, an Exynos 7870 chipset that will house an octa-core 1.5GHz processor and a Mali-T830 GPU, which will be backed by 2GB of RAM, while the internal memory will be only 8GB, but thankfully, the device will offer a microSD card slot for expansion. It will run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and will have the same cameras (12MP on the back and 8MP on the front) as the A5 2017.
The Galaxy A5 2017 will have a 5.2-inch Full HD display, an Exynos 7880 chipset with an octa core processor (four 1.87GHz Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.3GHz backed by 3GB of RAM), while the A7 2017 will measure either 5.5-inch or 5.7-inch and it will be powered by an octa-core 1.8GHz processor backed by 3GB of RAM.
