Previously, only flagship phones from Samsung were given preferential treatment in terms of sporting the best hardware and build quality, but the company has realized that there is significant potential of tapping into smartphone markets which feature devices having less powerful hardware, but great affordability options. That’s how the Galaxy A9 Pro come into being.
According to Tablety, Galaxy A9 Pro has been listed on Zauba, suggesting that the device features the model name SM-A910F and could also reach US markets. In terms of hardware specifications, the handset has everything you would expect from a price/performance phablet, including the 6-inch Super AMOLED display. The display gives off a resolution of 1080p and is powered by a Snapdragon 652. While Snapdragon 652 is nowhere close to the processing power or efficiency of Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820, its Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 processing combination is definitely a lethal one.
That’s not all, the smartphone also impresses in the memory category, because Galaxy A9 Pro features 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a storage card slot to expand that memory up to 128GB. One of the biggest advantages of having a Galaxy A9 Pro is its 5,000mAh battery. With the larger screen size smartphone comes a larger battery, resulting in higher talk time when connected to LTE networks.
The rear camera sensor of Galaxy A9 Pro is a 13MP shooter than can also shoot 4K videos seamlessly thanks to the addition of the Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 processing cores. More light will also be able to enter the sensor and be turned into digital signals thanks to the f/1.9 aperture.
While pricing details are currently not available, Samsung should go easy on the consumer if it really wants to tap into this particular market. Chinese manufacturers are battling it out with each other through competitive pricing, and it’s making things tougher for Android smartphone manufacturing giants.
