Samsung has announced the latest addition to its Galaxy A lineup. Made with gorgeous glass and metal, the Galaxy A9 is a smartphone that doesn’t compromise on display size and battery power.

What we’re dealing with here is a 6-inch monstrosity that apparently can last more than a day regardless of whatever game or app you use on it. That’s because the Samsung Galaxy A9 boasts a whopping 4000mAh battery to provide ample juice for the Super AMOLED display with 1080p resolution. And with Samsung’s tweaking of the software here and there, we’ve got a further optimized battery usage. Now, compare this phone to the likes of Galaxy S6 Edge and Note 5, both devices that are admittedly superior overall but with considerably poorer battery performance. That’s because they have smaller battery capacities and higher display resolutions.

And while it’s a member of a midrange family of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy A9 doesn’t fall short on other premium features, including a fingerprint scanner, a respectable Snapdragon 652 processor, 13-megapixel camera and 3GB of RAM.
