Samsung’s Galaxy A9 Pro, tied to the model number “SM-A9100,” recently made a visit to China’s TENAA website. Now, the same device has cleared the FCC certification. This means, the Galaxy A9 Pro can be expected to be announced anytime soon in the U.S.

Rumored to be a huge phablet, the Galaxy A9 Pro will reportedly feature a 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display, bundled with a modest screen resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 367 ppi.

Under the hood, an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 652) processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz, will apparently power this device. Graphics side of things will be taken care by Adreno 510 GPU and the handset will be backed by 4 GB of RAM.

When it comes to memory configuration, the Galaxy A9 Pro will reportedly come equipped with 32 GB of built-in storage space and microSD card slot for further expansion. Samsung will apparently mount a killer 16-megapixel camera unit at the back of the device. In addition, there will also be a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats.

Design-wise, the upcoming handset is believed to be identical to the original Galaxy A9. Apart from the standard connectivity options like Bluetooth, 3G, 2G and USB, this phone will also support 4G LTE.

Speaking of size, the Galaxy A9 Pro will be 7.9 mm thick and will weigh 210 grams. Needless to say, this upper-mid-range handset is going to be a bit bulkier among other Galaxy A series of devices. In comparison, the current-generation Galaxy A7 is 7.3 mm thick and it weighs 172 grams.
