On Thursday, October the 11th, Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy A9 Pro. This smartphone is largely expected to kick off a new era for Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A offerings thanks to the world’s first quadruple-camera setup on the rear. But according to one tipster, this is not all.

In addition to boasting Samsung’s first quadruple-camera setup, the upcoming Galaxy A9 Pro may also be the first Samsung-branded smartphone to ship with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 710 on the inside. If this is indeed the case, it solidifies expectations of an upper-midrange positioning above the current Galaxy A8 and A8+

In terms of the design, no official renders have leaked out as of yet. However, according to sources, it seems Samsung is planning a design that will resemble that of the Galaxy A9 Star. This means that, unlike most of the brand’s recent devices, a rectangular vertical camera setup is to be expected in the top-left corner of the rear. Moreover, if Samsung chooses to skip the in-display fingerprint scanner, a square-shaped sensor will sit on the rear too. Despite the potentially odd-looking rear design, the front of the Galaxy A9 Pro will resemble most other Galaxy devices thanks to an Infinity Display.

Considering the smartphone’s October 11 announcement date, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Samsung market its offering as a slightly cheaper alternative to Huawei’s upcoming Mate 20. After all, the flagship device is set to ship with just three rear sensors, something Samsung may use to its advantage when it comes to marketing.

I hope it will come with 5000 mAh just like the previous SD652 A9 Pro.

Indeed hopefully, my mom's still using the old A9 pro almost 2 yrs and still going strong without problem. Old folks really like smartphones with long lasting battery.

Without xiaomi, huawei, oppo and vivo. They wouldn't have even bothered making a new segment like this, they would have put a 450/625 even in this segment

I really wonder what the camera set up will be. LG proved the usefulness of wide angle, Apple and Samsung have proved how useful telephoto is. What will that fourth camera be?
