The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might be the talk of the town lately, but we’re not here to talk about that smartphone, we’ll talk more about the company’s mid-range offering, the Galaxy A9 Pro. Samsung had introduced quite a few devices under their ‘Galaxy A’ brand this year, including the Galaxy A9 Pro phablet which was announced back in March, and is available since May this year. Well, this phablet was not available in India, until now, read on.
It was reported last month that the Galaxy A9 Pro will land in India in September, and that has just happened, the company has officially unveiled their mid-range phablet. Now, this is a mid-range device, but its specs are almost high-end, the phone does sport a mid-range processor though. Anyhow, this smartphone is made out of metal, and it comes with Samsung’s well-known physical home key below the display, and that button doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The phone has two buttons on the left, those are the volume control keys, even though they’re separated. The physical key on the right is actually the phone’s power / lock key, and that’s pretty much it as far as physical keys go.
The Galaxy A9 Pro features a 6-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core processor, along with the Adreno 510 GPU. The 16-megapixel OIS camera (f/1.9 aperture) is placed on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel shooter can be found on the phone’s front side. The 5,000mAh battery is also available here, and it is not removable, while it offers fast charging, just in case you were wondering. This is a dual SIM smartphone (2 x nano SIM) and it comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, with Samsung’s custom UI on top of it. The phone measures 161.7 x 80.9 x 7.9mm, while it weighs 210 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will be available in Gold, Black and White color variants in India, and will cost Rs. 32,490 ($486). This phablet will go on sale starting September 26th, and will be available across the country.
