It seems that Samsung is prepping a new variant of its Galaxy A series smartphones, with the Galaxy A9 passing through the GeekBench software. This is a brand new version in the range, although it is unclear whether this is a replacement for the Galaxy A8 or if it is merely going to become a stable mate for that handset.Nevertheless, the Galaxy A9 is shaping up to be a solid mid-range device that will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p screen. The A9 will also get Qualcomm's new 64-bit Snapdragon 620 processor, a silicon that with four Cortex-A72 cores at 1.8 GHz, and four Cortex-A53, and is clocked at 1.4 GHz. 3GB of RAM will power the processor, while 32GB of native storage follows Samsung's recent trend of making that capacity its norm. The Galaxy A9 is likely to become Samsung's main mid-range smartphone and in terms of specs it is shaping up to be stocked up. We are still awaiting official confirmation about this handset from Samsung, but we are looking forward to seeing the design and of course the price.
