Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is not a new phone as it was launched back in 2016, but it was only made available in the Chinese market.
While initial reports had pegged the Galaxy C series phones to the Chinese market alone, the phones seem to be making it to other markets. According to a recent report, those in India will be able to enjoy the huge Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro very soon.
Just recently, Samsung Galaxy C7 started selling in the U.S. and if the latest reports are anything to go by, Indians will soon be able to buy the Galaxy C9 Pro locally. In case you didn’t know, this will be the first Samsung Galaxy C series phone to be sold in India as the rest of the family hasn’t made it just yet. Along with the new Galaxy C9 Pro launch, Samsung will reportedly unveil a Gear S3 wearable to the market as well.
In terms of specs, Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro has a mega-size of 6-inches when it comes to display. The Super AMOLED panel has a resolution of 1080p and features stereo speakers. Under the hood, the phablet has a speedy Snapdragon 653 SoC that is paired with a monstrous 6GB RAM – a first for Samsung – and internal storage of 64GB, which can be expanded via a microSD card. There is a fingerprint scanner on the home button.
The back of the Galaxy C9 Pro has a 16MP snapper, similar to what you find on the front. The two sensors have the same aperture of f/1.9, but you’ll only find HRD, PDAF and dual-tone LED flash on the main camera. While most of these are similar to what you get with the new Galaxy A series, you won’t find the likes of IP68, Samsung Pay and Always On Display on the Galaxy C9 Pro. Still, there is USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone port, a huge 4000mAh battery with support for fast charging as well as Android Marshmallow out of the box.
As for the pricing, it is still unknown. But given that the phone is valued at CNY 3,199, you can expect the Galaxy C9 Pro to be priced at below Rs 35,000 when it touches the Indian market.
