Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro is likely to be limited to Asian markets

The Galaxy A9 Pro has been teasing us a lot in recent weeks, with the device getting through important certifications and also going on sale in Malaysia late last month. Quite a few folks have been expecting the A9 Pro to get a worldwide launch based on various leaks and rumors, but it seems the 6-inch device will be limited to only Asian markets. Firmware for the phablet have made their way online for various Asian countries, including Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

With the firmware files now up, it’s a good sign the Galaxy A9 Pro will go on sale in these markets in the very near future. It’s not listed on Samsung’s website for these regions just yet, but we’re guessing that will not be the case for long. It’s too bad Samsung has decided not to launch its largest and most powerful Galaxy A device across the globe, although it is likely because 6-inch smartphones aren’t in high demand in every market.

The Galaxy A9 Pro features a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, the Snapdragon 652 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and a 5,000 mAh battery. It has a glass and metal design like other Galaxy A handsets launched in 2016, and it should be priced somewhere between $500 and $600 wherever it becomes available for sale.
