Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro allegedly in the making: a high-end, extra-large smartphone?

38

Samsung is reportedly working on a new extra-large smartphone which, according to Sam Mobile, might be called Galaxy A9 Pro (though its final name could change).

While there are no details on the features of this alleged A9 Pro, the device (model number SM-A9100) will likely be an enhanced version of the Galaxy A9, which was released by Samsung earlier this month.

The regular Galaxy A9 (model number SM-A9000) sports a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixels display, and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, so maybe the A9 Pro will come with a higher pixel resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels would look great on a 6-inch screen), plus a high-end processor. The Galaxy A9 Pro may also run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box - unlike the A9, which currently runs Android Lollipop (though it will, most probably, be updated to Marshmallow at some point).

Right now, Samsung is officially selling the Galaxy A9 - pictured above - only in China (for around $490), and Sam Mobile has it that the A9 Pro is also headed there. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that the upcoming handset won't be released in other parts of the world. We'll let you know more about the Galaxy A9 Pro as soon as new details are available.
