After a presentation in China last December, Samsung's first screened smartphone, the Galaxy A8s, will finally come out of China's borders. It will land next month in Korea, renamed Galaxy A9 Pro.
Even before the next Galaxy S10 range, Samsung has already launched a smartphone with a hole in the screen, a design identical to those of the Honor View 20 or Huawei Nova 4. However, the only smartphone of the manufacturer with this new design was until now the Galaxy A8s, confined to the Chinese market.
For the first time since its launch, the Galaxy A8s will finally get out of China's borders. Indeed, in a statement posted online this Friday, Samsung has announced the release on February 28 of the Galaxy A9 Pro in South Korea. It is actually the same smartphone as the Galaxy A8s, the "s" being at Samsung reserved for smartphones marketed exclusively in China, to regain market share.
Features identical to those of the Galaxy A8s
In terms of features, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro includes a 19.5: 9 screen, a front camera of 24 megapixels, a triple camera on the back with a main sensor, a zoom lens x2 and a lens for portrait mode. In addition, the Galaxy A9 Pro is also equipped with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 3400 mAh battery. The chip propelling the smartphone has not been indicated, but it should be the Snapdragon 710, as on the Galaxy A8s.
The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will be available on the Korean market from February 28 in three colors: absolute black, black and blue. It will be marketed for 599,500 won, or 470 euros. It is unknown for now whether the smartphone will arrive in Europe, but the fact that it is eventually available elsewhere than China may push to believe it.
