Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) shows up on Geekbench

The rumored Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) shapes up to be an exciting mid-range smartphone. The quad-camera setup has been mentioned by several sources while today a benchmark profile reveals what’s ticking under the hood.

As you can see, the multi-core score is 5844 and the sheet gives away a Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM, running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and a model number SM-A9200. That’s a considerable step up from the triple camera Galaxy A7. But not getting Android 9.0 Pie months after it’s out is still rather disappointing.

The previous leak suggested that a Snapdragon 660 is running the show and since the manufacturer rarely equips its handsets with Qualcomm chips, it’s a strong indication that the device will be available for China and the US as well. We are still waiting on solid evidence regarding the quad-camera setup, though.
