Since the start of 2016, we have been hearing a lot of rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, which is going to be the top-end model in the A-series. The phone is said to launch soon in China, and we have spotted the device earlier on AnTuTu and GFXBench, which also leaked a lot of specs. And finally, the phone has been certified by the Chinese regulatory authority TENAA. The first real-life images have been posted on the TENAA page along with all the specs.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro is a phablet featuring large 6-inch FullHD Super AMOLED display, which is one of the best in the market. Powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core CPU (most probably it’s the Snapdragon 652 chip), the phone comes with a good 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard expandable storage. The dual-SIM phone is LTE-enabled and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Weighing 210 grams, the phone comes with a 16MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front camera.
The Galaxy A9 Pro, as compared to the original Galaxy A9, brings 1GB more RAM, higher-resolution rear camera, and newer Android version. The A9 Pro is 0.5mm thicker and 10g heavier than the A9, so it is possible that the Galaxy A9 Pro might come with a larger battery. You should know that the A9 already flaunts a good 4,000mAh cell.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will be released in China soon and will come in Gold, White, and Black colors. It might even come with NFC to support Samsung Pay. The phone is rumored to cost between CNY 3,300 and CNY 3,600 (approx $504 to $550).
