The Samsung Galaxy A9 gets an upgraded Pro version


The largest member of the Galaxy A (2016) series has just gotten a boost with the Galaxy A9 Pro. On the exterior, it looks like a Galaxy A9 but it gets some well deserved upgrades in the hardware department.


While it gets the same 6.0″ Full HD display and an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor as the standard A9, the Galaxy A9 Pro gets 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on board. For taking pictures, the main 13MP camera has been upgraded to a higher 16MP unit, while the battery has been increased from 4,000mAh to 5,000mAh for extra long usage.

In China, the Galaxy A9 Pro is going for 3,499 CNY (about RM2,123) which is encroaching flagship smartphone territory. At the moment, there’s no word of it being released internationally and Samsung Malaysia is currently offering just the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 for our local market.
