Reports have recently surfaced that Samsung might be planning to launch an international version of their Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone. The original A9 Pro, which is the priciest model in the Galaxy A line, was first launched earlier this year as a Chinese exclusive.
The purported international version has received FCC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certifications, which is a good indicator that a global release could be on the way. The international version has already been spotted at the physical stores of Senheng, a consumer electronics retailer in Malaysia. However, the retailer’s website doesn’t list the phone, which means the launch may not be official.
So, what can we expect from the international version?
Well, to state the obvious, the A9 Pro is a slightly more upmarket version of the A9, which was launched in 2015, so we can expect the international A9 Pro model to contain most of the features found in the standard A9, as well the China-specific A9 Pro.
Those features should include a 1080 Full HD resolution AMOLED display measuring 6 inches with a 367/inch pixel density. As for processing power, it should come with a Qualcomm 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 652 chipset which works in tandem with an Adreno 510 GPU.
RAM capacity is estimated to be around 4GB, which is 1 GB more than the standard A9’s RAM capacity. Internal storage is said to be around 32GB. The camera will probably offer 16 megapixels and come with Optical Image Stabilization, LED flash, and an f/1.9 aperture lens. The camera on the front should sport 8 megapixels and 1080p resolution recording capabilities.
