Galaxy A9 Pro Specs Unveiled, Courtesy Of AnTuTu
After Galaxy A9, Galaxy A9 Pro is going to take the reins from its behemoth sized brother and carry out the fight to seize the middle tier smartphone market from the competition. Turns out that its specifications revelation are quite impressive, at least according to AnTuTu.
Galaxy A9 Pro Shows RAM Count Equivalent To A Flagship Device And Impressive Camera Sensor
As you can see in the image below, Galaxy A9 Pro sports a 5.5 inch display, which is half an inch smaller than Galaxy A9, which sports a 6.0 inch Super AMOLED display. Looks like Samsung finally got the hint that 6.0 inch smartphones can definitely be cumbersome so it is possible that it decided to limit the handset to 5.5 inches.
While size would be the first notable difference between the two smartphones, the second difference is that Galaxy A9 Pro sports 4GB of RAM, which is really impressive considering that the RAM count is the same amount present inside Galaxy Note 5, and will most likely be the same amount present in the upcoming Galaxy S7.
For the remaining internals, Snapdragon 652 is going to be present inside the handset because it states that Cortex-A72 is going to be present inside the SoC. Snapdragon 652 is definitely no slouch when it comes to performance, as indicated by the latest benchmarking results, and looking at these scores, we believe that Samsung has stated to take its mid-tier lineup quite seriously.
However, the natural disadvantage from owning a smaller smartphone is that it will not sport a large battery capacity. So in other words, this could mean that the upcoming smartphone will have a battery capacity that is less than 4,000mAh, but let us hope that Samsung gives us a nice surprise.
There is also a 16MP camera sensor located at the rear side of the chassis, indicating that images will appear slightly sharper than the 13MP shooter located on Galaxy A9. Let us hope that the aperture is retained at F/1.9 in order to transform low-light shots into images of breathtaking beauty. We are also assuming that this sensor will be able to record 4K videos since the 6 inch handset also sports this feature.
Several manufacturers have been hell bent on slimming down the thickness of mobile devices for additional appeal. For us, bulk isn’t a bad thing as long as the company does not compromise with maintaining impressive hardware inside it. With Galaxy A9, the price was somewhere around $500, which is too high for a mid-ranger, but considering the millions of fans that Samsung has garnered over the course of several years, the firm can make this bet, at least for a little while longer.
With Galaxy A9 Pro, the price could be slightly higher than the regular version, but Samsung should make darn sure that it does not go overboard with its strategy. What do you think the price of Galaxy A9 Pro should be ball parked at? Let us know your thoughts.
