International Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro passes FCC, U.S. release imminent
Samsung's Galaxy A9 Pro (2016) first became official back in March, adding to the firm's rich supply of powerful smartphones. Though not quite on the level of, say, the Galaxy S7, the A9 Pro is a pretty mean phablet with its full-HD display, 4 GB RAM and 5000 mAh battery capacity. Currently available to the Chinese market, an international version of the A9 Pro (SM-A910F) recently gained certification through The WiFi Alliance (WFA). Now, said device has also passed through the FCC. 

Usually, FCC certification suggests that an official announcement is just around the corner, so it shouldn't be too long before the A9 Pro makes its long-awaited début outside of China. It's safe to assume that Stateside consumers will be able to get their hands on it, though it remains to be seen which other regions will be furnished with the device. 

The international flavor looks set to carry the same specs as the already-released model in China. This would mean a 6-inch Super AMOLED display of 1080 x 1920, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 652 chipset with Adreno 510 graphics, 4 gigs of RAM and that laudable 5000 mAh juice pack. Elsewhere, there should be an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies, a 16-megapixel main camera, and 32 GB of expandable storage real estate. 

In addition to the recognized single-SIM configuration, a dual-SIM version of the A9 Pro is also on the cards—great news for business users and frequent travelers alike.

Is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro on your radar? Let us know in the comments.
