On 12/15/2015 ‘gsmarena’ got their hands on the measurements of the incoming Samsung Galaxy A9, by way of accessory maker ITSKINS. Having previously provided specs on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Plus, it’s interesting the A9 is slightly more compact than the S7, despite both having 6.0” screens.
The Galaxy A9 will measure 161.9 x 81.3 x 7.34mm compared to 163.32 x 82.01 x 7.82mm for the S7 Plus. Both these devices are a head taller than the Galaxy Note 5 (maybe this indicates Note 6 will also take a growing pill?)
Samsung had already made public the 2016 A-series lineup with the A3, A5 and A7 but kept the A9 up its sleeve. The 6-inch machine just couldn’t stay hidden forever and now even shows up on video. The video compares the Galaxy A9 to the A7, you can see the big difference between 5.5” and 6”, but other than that the designs appear similar.
The specs are also pretty much the same –a 1080p Super AMOLED screen, octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM, 13MP camera with OIS and a fingerprint reader for Samsung Pay. The A9 is expected to launch around Christmas or early January and its price will likely top $363.00.
Then on 12/17/2015 a reliable source on info about a smartphone’s development progress, noticed the FCC database now lists the Samsung A9. So the US communications authority has thoroughly examined the device and given it the green light. There’s not much detail given in such findings, at least in terms of specs, but much of that has already been covered.
But what we can glean from this FCC certification is the launch of the Galaxy A9 is just around the corner.

Included in comments about the A9, is an interesting current trend of smartphone users wanting a smaller rather than larger device. Analysts seem to have gotten it wrong -what happened to “size matters”?
Knowing how to properly use a digital device and Internet also matters, especially today as employers expect this ability and senior citizens need the ability not only to communicate with family but medical services and to pay bills.
