Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro was launched over a month ago and back then, the phone was only rolled out in the Chinese market.
However, like Samsung Galaxy C7 handset that first launched as a China-only variant and later found its way to the west, the new Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro has reportedly been certified for a global launch. Even though the latest report doesn’t come directly from Samsung, it is a solid hint that the handset is indeed coming to the U.S. and other regions across the globe.
In a new report, it appears that Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro has been certified for Wi-Fi services by the Wi-Fi Alliance. According to the Wi-Fi authority, the Galaxy C9 Pro will be able support Wi-Fi connectivity programs that include a, b, g, n and ac. It gets even better as the phone has also gone through another verification process where it has been certified for use on FDD/TD-LTE networks, GSM as well as WCDMA.
Even though there is no known release date of Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro to the global market, it appears that the South Korean tech giant could debut the phone alongside the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A 2017 series. There should be no changes when compared to the Chinese variant, which comes with a massive 6-inch Super AMOLED screen that features a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, the Galaxy C9 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 653 SoC, unless Samsung has plans to switch this chipset with its own Exynos processor, and a massive RAM of 6GB. In case you didn’t know, the C9 Pro is the first Samsung phone to come with this size of RAM.
In terms of storage, Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro ships with a 64GB onboard chip with room for expanding the storage via a microSD card. To keep the phone alive is a huge 4000mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology. You get a 16MP snapper on the back, the same size found on the selfie camera. All these are enclosed in a slim, 6.9mm metallic case that weighs quite massively at 189g.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow powers the Chinese version out of the box and so should the global version. However, whether the price will be retained at around $472 like with the case of China is still unknown, but we don’t expect huge variations, just in case of any.
