Galaxy A3, A5 and A7, the details of which are rounded up in this article. The Galaxy A9 Pro is at the very top of this middle-tier collective, and judging by its tech. specs, isn't too far off what many would deem a high-end device.The broad Galaxy A line of smartphones is Samsung's answer to the demand for stylish mid-range handsets that can still pump out a decent performance. The firm has already released the 2016 editions of the
As mentioned in our previous coverage, the A9 Pro packs a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 display. Under the hood, there's Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, the same chip that may be used in scaled-down, cheaper editions of the LG G5 and HTC 10. The Galaxy A9 Pro also gets a very handsome 4 GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel front-facing shooter. There's also 32 GB of on-board storage which, thankfully, can be expanded by means of the microSD slot.
Along with the generous dose of RAM, Samsung hasn't messed about with regard to the A9 Pro's battery life, either. Though sheer capacity isn't the only measure of how long a device's lights will stay on in real-world usage, the 5000 mAh juice pack should help the A9 Pro to go the distance.
From a software aspect, the Galaxy A9 Pro runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, and is also treated to Samsung's TouchWiz UX overlay.
The device is now available to the Chinese market at the cost of 3599 Yuan ($540). There are no shiny press images available at the moment, though recent FFC and TENAA certification of the device suggests that its profile is largely unchanged from the preceding Galaxy A9, as seen below.

Yes, but no. The Mega series was seriously under powered & spec'd with terrible build quality. By comparison this would almost be a High-End 'currently owned by Lenova' Motorola phone.

Then buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pro. It's basically the same thing with a smaller 5.5" screen and a 4,000mah battery with 3gb ram and 32gb rom for about $230.

The fact that is actually had a decent processor unlike the 2016 A's devices makes it even better. I hope that GSMArena review this or at least for a battery test.
