Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro specs leak: 4GB RAM, 6-inch display and Android Marshmallow

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro specs leak: 4GB RAM, 6-inch display and Android Marshmallow
With the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge having finally entered the fray at Mobile World Congress, it's rather difficult to concentrate on Samsung's moves away from the forthcoming flagship range. As we know only too well, though, Sammy likes to maintain a broad, varied ensemble of smartphones to appease every taste. Enter the Galaxy A9 Pro, a device that has been spotted on a number of occasions, most recently en route from Samsung's native Korea to India for R&D purposes. Now, thanks to AnTuTu benchmark details that have popped up through Weibo, we have a solid idea of its specs. 

Given the purported naming, it's reasonable to assume that the Galaxy A9 Pro will be an improved edition of the standard Galaxy A9. Rolled out at the turn of the year, the A9 boasts a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 display, 3 GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera and an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, among other features. Per these new benchmarks, the Pro model will be of similar stock throughout, though buyers can expect an extra gig of RAM and a 16-megapixel rear-facing snapper. Where the current A9 boasts a 5-megapixel shooter for selfies, the A9 Pro will be furnished with an 8-megapixel camera that will presumably offer improved performance. 

With the specs of the Galaxy A9 Pro now seemingly nailed on, all that remains is the small matter of the release. As you may have noticed, the new handset will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, which means that the A9 Pro will almost certainly drop after the all-new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Seeing as the flagship duo is being slated as the first Samsung to run Marshmallow off the bat, there's just no way that Samsung would upstage its latest and greatest devices with this apparent Galaxy A9 refresh.

:le sigh:
I realize most think 6" is too big for a phone, but I love mine & wish there were more "quality" ones still being made by some of the larger manufacturers.

Again, its not a Flashship phone. Why would you expect a flagship GPU/COU to be used in a mid-ranged phone.

You need to understand Samsung phones.

The "J" series is the low end. The "A" series is the mid-range and the "S" and Note are the top dogs.

So what do you need the S830 for that the S820 can't do then?

I agree. I'm still waiting on a 6 inch 2-4k phone with top tier specs. Most people will argue 4k is overkill, but for VR it's not. Still waiting...

Knowning Samsung as we do, this phone is probably going to cost an arm and a leg. My guess is 599 euro.

I also prefer this squared off slimmer profile over the oval overly done curves of the s7's. I want to hold a sleek pro looking phone, not a bar of soap! Lol.

Honestly I would really appreciate having a phablet, like this one, for example. I really do not like the phone + tablet combo at this moment, so it would be really nice to have a 2 in 1 alternative, eyyy.

I'm sick of my iPhone 5s and it's tiny display, and I can't take my tablet everywhere as I go (also I have to charge twice as many devices, aaand I often forget to do it for either of the devices, it's a bummer)

So it's got 1gb less ram, one less camera, one less Dolby sound system, a lesser HD screen, and 32gb less storage than my $350 zte. Samsung, get it together.
