Ever since January the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro has been in the rumors, supposedly arriving soon in China. We’ve already seen it in the databases of both GFXBench and AnTuTu, on which occasions we’ve found out most of its specs.
And now the A9 Pro has been certified for sale in China by TENAA. The regulatory authority has thus outed the first images of the device, along with a pretty comprehensive list of its specs – like it always does.
The Galaxy A9 Pro will have a 6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash, an 8 MP selfie cam, a 1.8 GHz octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM functionality and LTE. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Its dimensions are 161.7 x 80.9 x 7.9 mm, and it weighs 210g.
The exact chipset employed isn’t named by TENAA, but from the benchmark runs that were leaked in the past we know it’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652. Compared to the non-Pro A9, you’re getting a higher-res main camera, 1 extra GB of RAM, as well as a newer version of Android from day one. And since it’s 10g heavier and 0.5 mm thicker than the A9, we assume the A9 Pro will also sport an even bigger battery than the 4,000 mAh cell inside the non-Pro version.
The Galaxy A9 Pro will be available in China in black, white, and gold, and it’s rumored to have NFC on board complete with support for Samsung Pay. Its estimated price is between CNY 3,300 and CNY 3,600 (that’s $504 to $550 or 462 to 504 at the current exchange rates).
