SamMobile Reports – Only in Asian Markets
The A series from Galaxy is a powerful smartphone series, with the A9 Pro debuting during the month of March this year, in China. Later, it was released some weeks ago in Malaysia.

The phone is to be retailed only in special markets within Asia, according to SamMobile. However, there is some good news, as it is also reported that the A9 Pro will be available for those living in Vietnam and Philippines as well as Thailand.
How About India?
This is a question many Galaxy fans in India are asking regarding the release of the A9 Pro. However, there is no official statement or news from Samsung about the release of the A9 Pro . It is expected that the smartphone will surely hit retail stores in India by the end of this year.
India offers a huge smartphone market and it is also the second largest smartphone market in the world. Hence, it is very likely that the company will launch the A9 Pro in India, with the demand being huge in this segment. It is possible that the Korean smartphone giant could launch the device as a high-end version of the J Max.
