In December, Samsung had officially launched its new phablet, the Galaxy A9. Now, an updated version of the device will be launched in China soon. The new Galaxy A9 Pro already was approved by the certification body of telecommunication devices (TENAA) in the country and reportedly, though it will look like the original, but with more powerful configurations.
TENAA reported that the new phablet has 6-inch screen and 4 GB of RAM, while the Galaxy A9 launched in December has 3GB RAM. Another major difference is the operating system. Even with the likely upgrade to the latest software, the Galaxy A9 comes with Android Lollipop. While the A9 Pro will come with Android Marshmallow. Since the new system is a considerable improvement in memory management, coupled with the increased amount of RAM, the performance of the new device will certainly be much higher.
Galaxy A9 Pro will come with improvement in camera relative to A9. Galaxy Pro has a rear camera of 16 MP and a front camera of 8 MP. The Galaxy A9 has rear camera of 13 MP and the front is 5 MP. Both devices use the same processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652.
This is not the first time we hear rumors related to the Galaxy Pro A9. At the end of January there were already clues that Samsung may release a phablet with more powerful specifications. The rumors also indicated that China would be the first of the new handset market.
To date, there is no hint that Samsung plans to offer the Galaxy A9 Pro to other markets. The price details and the exact release date has not yet been disclosed.
