Samsung Galaxy A9

Samsung Galaxy A9




If you're looking for a phone that can double as a serving tray you're in luck. At its Galaxy A Party 2016 event in China, Samsung announced the high-end Galaxy A9 with a six-inch 1080p super AMOLED display. Never again will you have to squint to see the tiny text on lesser phones like the relatively diminutive Nexus 6P (5.7 inches), iPhone 6s Plus (5.5 inches) or Galaxy Note 5 (5.7 inches). Just be sure to invest in some cargo pants because your jean pockets probably won't cut it.

The 7.4mm thick phone sports an impressive 4,000mAh battery, Snapdragon 652 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 13MP rear facing camera. The front facing camera is 8MP. While the hardware on the high-end phone looks great, unfortunately it ships with Android 5.1.1.

Another bummer is that it's only going to be available in China starting next month. Fingers crossed it hits other countries soon. No word on pricing.
