After unveiling the Samsung Galaxy A9 in December, Samsung plans to show off its upgraded version, the A9 Pro, very soon, the specifications for which have been revealed in a recent AnTuTu benchmarking. Prior to this, specifications for the A9 Pro were also spotted on the GFXBench.
The handset which was recently sent to India for testing is slated to have a 6-inch display with a 1920×1080 pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 652 processor from Qualcomm coupled with 4GB RAM, an Adreno 510 graphics processor and 32GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot, 4,000mAh battery and a 16MP rear camera are also on board.
Although the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor and internal storage of 32GB remain the same like the A9, the Pro has a much better 4GB RAM compared to the A9 which comes with 3GB of RAM. The camera has also received an upgrade as the A9 carries a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear. Again, unlike the A9, which boasts of a 5MP shooter for selfies, the A9 Pro will have an 8MP front snapper.
Most importantly, the A9 Pro will be pre-installed with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the latest version of the OS which has so far been pre-installed only in the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Samsung appears to be waiting until orders can commence in full flow for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge globally before launching the A9 Pro. But the launch is expected by Q2 this year.
