The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel shooter, similar to the A9, but this has a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS).

The Galaxy A9 Pro is a dual-SIM phone with dedicated nano-SIM slots and an extra microSD expansion slot. It has 4G LTE connectivity, a fingerprint sensor on the home button, and boasts of a metal and glass combination similar to the Galaxy S6 series smartphones.

In China, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro is priced at 3499 yuan which is approximately Rs. 35,765 in India, and according to our Samsung India source it is likely be around Rs. 35,000, when it launches in India in September.
