Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro 2016

Not long after launching the Galaxy A9, Samsung is now getting ready to release a beefed up version of it, apparently called Galaxy A9 Pro 2016.

While it’s powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor that’s found inside the regular Galaxy A9, the Galaxy A9 Pro comes with 4 GB of RAM (instead of just 3 GB), and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box (whereas the Galaxy A9 still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop). According to China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (aka TENAA), the new Samsung smartphone also has an 8 MP front-facing camera and a 16 MP rear one – both representing upgrades from the 5 MP and 13 MP cameras of the older model. The rest of the features seem to be similar to those of the regular A9, including a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE connectivity, 32 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.
