For some buyers, “display size” is a make-or-break criterion in deciding which device to purchase. Sensing the huge demand for big displays, Samsung is apparently gearing up to release the Galaxy A9 Pro with a massive screen. The device apparently visited the TENAA website recently, which is the FCC-equivalent in China.

According to the certification authority’s listing, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, tied to the model number “SM-A9100,” will come with a humongous 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display, aided by 1,920 × 1,080 pixels screen resolution. Speaking of exterior design, Phone Arena said that the handset looks similar to the original Galaxy A9.

Under the hood, the A9 Pro will come powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor. While the Galaxy A9 comes backed by a good 3 GB of RAM, the Pro variant will reportedly house a solid 4 GB of RAM configuration. On the software front, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS will run the handset out of the box, whereas the original version runs Android 5.1.

When it comes to camera specification, the Galaxy A9 Pro will sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. In comparison, the original A9 comes bundled with 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel primary and secondary camera units, respectively. Looking at the configurations and comparisons, it goes without saying that Samsung has upgraded the Pro version with significant changes under the hood.

Apart from the standard connectivity options, the Galaxy A9 Pro will apparently support 4G LTE. This phone will come equipped with 32 GB of built-in storage space and a microSD card slot to facilitate further expansion.

Similar to the Galaxy A9, the Galaxy A9 Pro is also believed to debut in China, followed by other regions.
