Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro goes official in China with 4GB RAM, 5,000 mAh battery

By Adrian Diaconescu March 30, 2016, 5:53 am

Another confusingly familiar, confusingly branded, confusingly priced mid-range Android smartphone from Samsung? Not exactly, or at least, not entirely.

Granted, on the outside, the just-announced Galaxy A9 Pro looks essentially identical to the standard A9 unveiled back in December. And the name is inherently puzzling, making it even harder than before to keep track of all the inexplicably similar A-series, J-series and E-series models.

On top of it all, this comes dangerously close to Galaxy S7 flagship-grade pricing levels, at 3,500 Yuan or $540 in China. But that’s because it’s a high-ender of sorts in its own right. Sure, you can do better than the octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor running the hardware show here.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

Then again, the Galaxy A9 Pro seems poised to break battery endurance records, at least as far as Samsung handhelds are concerned, courtesy of a gigantic 5,000 mAh juicer. Add 4GB RAM in the mix, which no reasonable OEM is looking to one-up just yet, plus 16 and 8MP cameras, and you get a device well-suited for today’s flagship Android arena.

Especially with 6.0 Marshmallow software goodies provided out the box, 32GB expandable storage, fingerprint recognition, and a respectably sharp, ginormous 6-inch Super AMOLED screen. You’re starting to wish this would go global soon, aren’t you? Unfortunately, that’s a long shot, as even the non-Pro Galaxy A9 is still hard to come by across Asian borders.
