Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro launches in India at $485 with 5,000 mAh battery in tow

When not busy urging Galaxy Note 7 buyers to return the hazardous S Pen phablet, handling exchanges, and giving out compensatory freebies, Samsung likes to flood the global mid-range market with 2017 upgrades of A3, A5 and A7 models (already?), a somewhat tardy 2016 A8 configuration, and a Galaxy A9 Pro that doesn’t really need a year attached to its name.

This 6-incher comes as close to flagship Android material as it gets, falling short of the hero title due mostly to Full HD screen resolution and an octa-core Snapdragon 652, not 820 or 821, processor.

Otherwise, power users can’t possibly complain about anything concerning the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, what with 4GB RAM, a colossal 5,000 mAh cell, expandable 32GB storage, 16/8MP cameras, and fingerprint recognition wrapping up its spec sheet.

Oh, and the glass/metal-combining giant somehow manages to measure just 7.9mm in thickness, with super-slim screen bezels, though the battery and large display make it impossible for the A9 Pro to weigh less than a whopping 210 grams.

First unveiled back in spring for China, the bad boy finally spreads to India, while Europe and the US are still left waiting. Priced at Rs. 32,500 ($485 or so), the Marshmallow-powered phone needs to hold off affordable flagships like the OnePlus 3 or LG G4, which seems tricky.
