The A9 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor (formerly Snapdragon 620) with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Unlike the Galaxy S series, the A9 includes a memory card slot with support for microSD cards up to 128 GB. The Galaxy A9 boasts a 13-megapixel f/1.9 main camera and 8-megapixel user-facing camera. A 4,000mAh battery is sealed inside, although it supports QuickCharge for rapid charging. Last, the A9 adds a fingerprint sensor to the home button with support for Samsung Pay. The Galaxy A9 is launching in China first. Samsung hasn't said if the A9 will be sold in other markets.

Too big for you , not everyone
I don't care for the smaller phones but there are endless choices if you like the sub 6 inch screens. Have some sympathy for the big screen crowd. Slowly but surely the world has moved to bigger scenes. Check the iPhone. The Note. The Galaxy S series. Not just phones , it's everything - look at the Honda Civic over the years .... bigger and bigger.
