During an unexpected turn of events, it was announced that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will have a removable battery. It comes with a FCC ID label which is located inside the battery compartment. When the unit is shipped from the factory, the battery cover remains installed.
The battery is never installed prior to sale and as a result, the cover must be removed by the user in order to install the battery properly and operate the device. The FCC ID is readily visible to the user during this time.
Acrylic glue is used to permanently attach the label and it cannot be removed easily from the device. This was revealed in one specific document by the US Federal Communication Commission. It reveals the certification label placement.
In case if the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro, it seems more like a physical paper label which is glued on the inside of a battery compartment. This further provides as a hint as to the Pro version being 10 grams heavier than the plain A9. It needs some additional reinforcement which is otherwise provided by the rear panel.
A glimpse of the phone’s looks was provided by a TENAA certification and it also said that the phone would be 0.5mm thicker and it all makes sense at the moment. However, the Chinese authority’s photos show the presence of a glass back panel, which doesn’t quite add up. However, that wouldn’t quite add up to the A-series standards.
Samsung recently made a lot of headlines with the release of their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones. They were launched in India at a highly competitive price and it is being expected that the company will release another device named the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro.
The device is rumored to be a pumped up version of the Samsung Galaxy A9 and it has already cleared a few certification test. This resulted in the revelation of appearance and certain specs of the smartphone. A signature feature of the A series smartphones from Samsung is a full-metal build. Reports indicate that the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will sit at the top of the series.
It is surprising to see a metal frame on the side but it is quite overwhelming to note that the device might come with a removable battery. According to the leaked information, the device will be around 10 grams heavier than the A9.
According to the TENAA listing, it will also be 0.5mm thicker. The reported weight and width are 210 grams and 7.5mm respectively. The latest reports indicate that the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will have a 6-inch display, just like its predecessor. The 6 –inch AMOLED panel will have a full HD 1920×1080 resolution. The Galaxy A9 came with 3GB of RAM but the Galaxy A9 Pro will have a greater 4GB of RAM.
This is exactly similar to what was noticed in the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. In terms of story, the Galaxy A9 Pro will have 32GB eMMC memory.
According to leaked information from various sources, the Galaxy A9 Pro will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC under the hood. It is also one of the latest generations SoC from Samsung and comes equipped with 8 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
This is further coupled with Adreno 510 GPU. If the latest reports are to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy A9 Pro will sport a 16megapixel rear camera, similar to the previous generation Samsung Galaxy S6. This shouldn’t be a problem since the camera module on the Galaxy S6 is still one of the best in the market.
