Samsung has scheduled a launch event in Malaysia on 11th October to launch a new Galaxy series smartphone where the company is promising “4x fun”. While the invite does not reveal which smartphone the South Korean giant is planning to launch at the event, rumors suggest that the phone in question is the Galaxy A9 Pro.
Now, the latest report related to the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro reveals that the phone could be the first device from Samsung to be powered by Qualcomm’s recently launched Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor which is manufactured with 10nm process.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset includes two cores of Kryo 360 Cortex A75 that clocks at 2.2 GHz and six cores of Kryo 360 Cortex A55 that offers a processing speed of 1.7 GHz. The octa-core processor is coupled with Adreno 616 graphics that promises 35 percent better rendering of graphics.
Compared to Snapdragon 660, the SD710 offers 25 percent faster performance. Also, it has been designed to consume less power while enjoying videos and games. The app launch times have been improved by 15 percent compared to its predecessor model.
There’s no information available related to the phone’s design but we are expecting the usual front design, thanks to the company’s Infinity Display. If the phone does not feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, it’ll have a fingerprint sensor on the back.
Earlier, there were reports suggesting that the phone getting launched on 11th October could feature four cameras on the back side. However, there’s no substantial proof available at this time to back such a claim.
