Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro launches in India: Price, features and specs

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro has been launched in India with a 6-inch display and 5000mAh battery at Rs. 32,490. Available in Black, Gold, and White color variants, the handset will be visible on the shelves of the retail stores from September 26. The big attraction of the Galaxy A9 Pro is the integration of a large 6-inch display and 5000mAh battery with fast charging support.

Even though the handset was launched in China in March 2016, it took several months for the company to launch the phone in India. This is because the new smartphone features considerable upgrade compared to the original Samsung Galaxy A9. Hence, the company has coined the tag “Pro” on it.

Hence, the 6-inch Super AMOLED display on Galaxy A9 Pro enhances the user experience to a large extent. With a large display, users will be able to navigate websites and apps easily.

Sharma added that the presence of a large battery enables users to work with the phone for a long time. Moreover, the integration of an enhanced camera with OIS helps you to capture images in low-light conditions. The release of new Android game warrants a handset with improved memory and advanced processor.
