After releasing the Galaxy S7 series, Samsung has apparently announced the power-packed Galaxy A9 Pro in China.
According to MyDrivers, the A9 Pro is now retailing in China for 3,599 Yuan, which roughly translates to $557. However, at this point, there is no official information available specific to the international release details. In comparison, the original Galaxy A9 started retailing at 3,199 Yuan i.e. about $495 in January.
The metal-clad Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro features a humongous 6.0-inch display, complemented by 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. An octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor powers the handset with a killer 4 GB of RAM onboard. It is worth noting that Snapdragon 652 is the same chipset expected to be part of the mid-range variants of LG G5 and HTC 10, Phone Arena reported.
When it comes to camera configuration, the Galaxy A9 Pro sports a 16-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. The primary camera supports LED flash and optical image stabilization (OIS). This device comes equipped with 32 GB of native storage space, along with microSD card slot to facilitate expansion.
To top it all off, Samsung has housed an unbelievable 5,000 mAh battery pack on the Galaxy A9 Pro. However, at this point, we do not know how much battery life can be expected out of this handset. In comparison, the smaller sibling Galaxy A9 features a 4,000 mAh battery cell and 3 GB of RAM.
Apart from the standard connectivity options, this phone supports 4G LTE. Speaking of software configuration, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS runs the phone out of the box with TouchWiz UI overlay. Gadgets 360, on the other hand, noted that this device supports dual-SIM cards.
In any case, readers should note that Samsung’s China-specific website has not listed this new device yet.
