Samsung in the past few of weeks renews its Galaxy A smartphone series by launching the second-generation Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 smartphone along with the first-generation Samsung Galaxy A9. Although the company did launch the Galaxy A9 in China, it failed to reveal any price tag for the phablet.
A leaked screenshot, which was shared by a user on Weibo. It shows that the handset will cost RMB 3,199 in China. For those doing the maths, that’s $495 at the current exchange rates. The high price tag of the phablet is said to be due to its metal frame and glass body design as seen in other premium Galaxy handsets such as Note 5, Galaxy S6, and more, and the specs it offers. Samsung is yet to announce the price of the handset officially.
