Samsung went official with the announcement of the 2016 iteration of the Galaxy A series last month. Of the four models in the series, the Galaxy A9 was mostly in talks owing to its enormous size. An exclusive report is doing the rounds at the moment saying the Korean company is working on a Galaxy A9 Pro model.
The report also says that the development of the device is in progress, but there is no news regarding the phone’s specs and features. However, it can be assumed that the upcoming A9 Pro model will be an improvised version of the regular A9 model, reports GSM Arena.
A blogger at SamMobile assumes that the Galaxy A9 Pro’s name might change later. While not much can be predicted about the new model, the blogger speculates that the phone’s display might have a higher resolution and that there will be more internal storage space. An Android 6.0 Marshmallow software is expected on the device.
While Galaxy fans will have to wait for more time for the A9 Pro to arrive, let’s refresh your memories regarding the Galaxy A9 specs. The regular phone has model number SM-A9000, which sports a 6-inch display screen with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. Running on octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, the A9 has Android Lollipop as its software. Right now, the Galaxy A9 is sold only in China for $490, reports Phone Arena.
CEO and Head of Samsung’s IT & Mobile Business, JK Shin, said in a press conference, “At Samsung, we are committed to continued innovation, inspired by the feedback and needs of our wide range of consumers. With the introduction of the Galaxy A (2016), we took the consumer feedback on our original Galaxy A models and made thoughtful and impactful improvements offering consumers a seamless convergence of style and performance for their everyday lifestyles,” reports Indian Express.
The report also mentions that the Galaxy A-series including A3, A5 and A7 models will initially roll out in China, but will be available in the global markets later.
