Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone surfaces on GFXBench
The Galaxy Pro A9 has appeared with the following specifications:
- 5.5-inch FHD display
- 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 SoC (possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC)
- 4 GB RAM
- 16 MP rear + 8 MP front cameras
The Snapdragon SoC in particular performs very close to the Snapdragon 810 SoC, which was Qualcomm's flagship offering on many high-end smartphones of 2015. The cameras could also be very similar to the ones found on the Huawei Mate 8.
Entries in the GFXBench database have largely been a reliable first look at unannounced devices. Still, the listed display size of 5.5-inch for the potential Galaxy Pro A9 has us scratching our heads. The regular 2016 Galaxy A9 carries a 6-inch screen and the 2016 Galaxy A7 a 5.5-inch screen. Previous rumors have mentioned a 6-inch display for the Galaxy A9 Pro and a higher resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. This would put the the smartphone more in line with the original non-Pro version.
Galaxy models ranging from the inexpensive J series all the way up through the mainstream A series and flagship S series have been making headlines left and right through leaks and murmurs of potential announcements. Samsung is expected to reveal its 2016 lineup later this month come MWC 2016 and the Galaxy Unpacked event.
