Samsung Galaxy A9 price in Malaysia


The Samsung Galaxy A9 is generating a storm in it’s latest comeback in size, putting Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus or Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge+ to shame sporting a six inch screen making it a nuisance to slip it in the back pocket of your jeans anymore. If you can’t get enough of your touchscreen, Samsung’s Galaxy A9 is a great substitute to the Galaxy S6 and is currently the largest smartphone available in the market. It is geared with a Super AMOLED screen 1,920 x 1,080 resolution display and a pixel density of 401ppi for watching videos and playing games with a viewing pleasure of brightnesss and sharpness of colours and visibility.


Other than the screen size being larger than life, the Samsung Galaxy A9 is stuffed with a mammoth of a battery at 4,000mAh giving an expectation of one and a half to two days of total talk time. This is one of Galaxy A9’s highest improvement and hopefully the agony of hanging on to less than a day mark battery life will be over. The intelligence of the device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 chip, a 64-bit octa-core processor made up of a quad-core Cortex-A72 and a quad-core Cortex-A53. The phone is around 2mm less slimmer than the iPhone 6s Plus though sturdier especially with the edges lightly curved. The thickness of the Samsung Galaxy A9 compared to the Samsung Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 which were 7.3mm is hardly a difference at 7.4mm for a big guy. Though slightly fatter, the phone still stands slim at a good measurement for a large phone with such capacity.


The Samsung Galaxy A8 succeeded in satisfying a broad range of consumers with a greater combination of mid-range and higher-end specs and the Galaxy A9 seems to be following this footstep.

The device is boosted with 3GB of RAM for steady multi tasking operations backed with 32GB of total internal storage with the option of expanding to an added 128GB of space applying the phone’s built-in microSD slot. The Samsung Galaxy A9 operates from the heart of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and can be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshamallow OS.


The phone comes with a 13 megapixels rear camera with LED flash, continuous shooting, face detection, geo tagging, optical image stabilization and a solid 8 megapixel front camera for all possible selfie functions. Since the Samsung Galaxy A series has faithfully come in premium metal material, the A9 build does not fall short of that promise with an all-aluminium build. Thanks to this, you can bid goodbye to getting messy fingerprints on the phone now.

The new device also came out with a score of 73,592 through the AnTuTu benchmark test which sets it on par with two other competitive flagship models. They are Sony Xperia Z5 that is driven by the Snapdragon 810 chipset scoring 76,862 and HTC One M9 armed by Snapdrag 810 Soc with a score of 79,965.

At present, the LeTV LeMax Pro (X9120) is the unofficial leader on AnTuTu with a total sum of 133,357. The brand new Snapdragon 820 chipset is the aptitude for this phone, bagging a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU with a RAM of 4GB inside. The Huawei Mate 8 tops as the official leader on the AnTuTu leaderboard.


Similiar to Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7, the Samsung Galaxy A9 is accompanied with Samsung Pay which is a security feature earlier implanted in all Samsung’s flagship smartphones through adding a finger print scanner which also works as a home button. Predictably, the phone is dual SIM (GSM and GSM), accomodating any two regular SIM cards. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, GPS, bluetooth, NFC, FM, 3G, 4G and sensory options are Proximity Sensor, Ambient light Sensor,   Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

Although the Samsung Galaxy A9 news has been disclosed in December 2015, the proper release of the device into the markets can probably only be expected early next year. Since the Samsung Galaxy A8 was only released in July, Samsung is unlikely to be ready to release the A9 now. This point has been strengthened by Zaoba’s Manifest claim that only components of the Samsung A9 was shipped to India for testing in October. It is highly imaginable that the phone will be released first in China soon.

The device falls into the high end of the market range though exact pricing information and international availability are uncertain. However, the phone is being sold in India for R32,500 which amounts to approximately $500, not too far from the price of Samsung Galaxy A8.

Samsung is one of the major leading smartphone players in the world. It was founded back in 1969 , known as Samsung Electric Industries from Suwon, South Korea. The headquartered Samsung Electronics now produces everything from cars to semiconductors. In 2009, the first smartphone was released and has recently developed smartphones operating on a back-up to it’s Android based smartphones called Tizen OS.


The device is rumored to cost around $500 dollars. Which is a little more than RM 2,000 due to the weak currency. Would you pay such price for this phone?
