Samsung Galaxy A9 continues on its path towards launch as Bluetooth certification arrives

Two months back we first started checking out evidence for a new Samsung mid-ranger, and while it was just a bit of a guess at the time, the phone sure seemed like it might be a new Galaxy A-series device, picking up the presumptive Galaxy A9 moniker. In the weeks since we’ve been telling you about the growing of evidence behind this handset, from import logs to benchmark reports. Samsung has still yet to go official with any announcement, but we’ve got another step along the journey there to share with you today, as the phone picks up its Bluetooth certification.

Familiar Samsung model number SM-A9000 pops up once again as the Bluetooth SIG publishes the phone’s paperwork. Mind you, it doesn’t really bring us any new insight into Samsung’s plans for the hardware, so think of this more as another checkmark on the to-do list that will lead us up to the A9’s ultimate launch.

As for when that might be, well, your guess is as good as ours. Waiting until CES or MWC might be possible, but considering everything we’ve seen about this model, it sure feels like it could be here sooner rather than later.

Then again, considering the signs pointing to other new Galaxy A devices in the works, perhaps Samsung could be waiting to get everything lined up to introduce them all at once.
