Guess it’s time to file that Windows 10 wild guess under utopian dreams for good, as the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will only differ from the standard A9 in memory, photography, pre-loaded software build and thickness departments.

Several recent benchmarks suggested the SM-A9100 would carry 4GB RAM and a 16MP rear-facing camera, specifications now supported by a federal certification stop at Tenaa. China’s FCC equivalent also lets us check out the A9 Pro in the flesh for the first time, and… very little is changed.

Like the Samsung Galaxy A9, this “professional” 6-incher appears to sandwich an elegant metal frame between two robust slices of glass. Coated in gold here, but probably coming in other colors too, the Galaxy A9 Pro features relatively slim screen bezels, and a physical home button underneath the 1080p AMOLED panel housing a Samsung Pay-enabled fingerprint scanner.

Of course, the digital wallet service has to actually launch on Chinese shores for people to use it, as the world’s largest smartphone market should be the phablet’s main focus. With Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow already installed, the LTE-capable, 7.9mm-slender device looks just about prepared to go on sale. For a pretty penny, presumably, especially as the slightly thicker profile might allow it to accommodate an even heftier battery than the A9’s 4,000 mAh powerhouse.

Everything else stays the same, including an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, expandable 32GB storage, and 8MP front-firing cam.
