This is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (Android 6.0 Marshmallow and 4 GB of RAM on board)
Not long after launching the Galaxy A9, Samsung is now getting ready to release a beefed up version of it, apparently called Galaxy A9 Pro (model number SM-A9100). Recently, we've seen mentions of the Galaxy A9 Pro in various places on the web - here, here, and here - but it's only today when we can finally take a peek at the device - which, unsurprisingly, seems to be looking exactly like the regular A9.

While it's powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor that's found inside the regular Galaxy A9, the Galaxy A9 Pro comes with 4 GB of RAM (instead of just 3 GB), and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box (whereas the Galaxy A9 still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop). According to China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (aka TENAA), the new Samsung smartphone also has an 8 MP front-facing camera and a 16 MP rear one - both representing upgrades from the 5 MP and 13 MP cameras of the older model. The rest of the features seem to be similar to those of the regular A9, including a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE connectivity, 32 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.

We don't know where and when the Galaxy A9 Pro will be released, though it's probably safe to assume that it's going to hit the market in China first (just like the regular Galaxy A9). Perhaps Samsung wants to launch this A9 Pro in more regions than the regular handset (maybe even in the US)? We'll let you know when we find out.

I like how Samsung can put a 8MP FFC here but not on the S7. -_-

Updated Note 4 design? All metal and no plastic. Looks pretty decent.
But once you have a taste of the S or Note, why pick this?

This is more of a S6 plus or S6 XL. BTW, the A9000 version already has 8MP front camera.

The Note or S series never got a taste of a fantastic battery life with that 4000 mAh. And that 6 inch screen.

Why is it so hard to make A9 compact...
I hope that iPhone SE will force more OEMs to release at least one powerful compact handset

Z5C is a rubbish phone. Made of cheap plastic, with weak display, poor camera, overheating processor, poorly optimized software and just 2GB of RAM. And it's too expensive for what it offers.

4.7" or 5" is already compact

Ugh... 4" phones are tiny garbage only fit for little girl hands. I say this as my three daughters all have 4" phones. Be a man and use a manly sized phone. :)

Seen the A3/A5?
A9 needs at stronger processor like an Exynos 78xx or 8890 to be powerful.

16 MP camera mentioned twice in the article. Also, I wonder whether the camera will be similar to the one on the A8/S5 Neo or more like the Galaxy S6 series.
