Samsung Launches the Galaxy C9 Pro with SD-653 and 6GB RAM in China
Samsung is keen to move past the Note 7 fiasco and get its business back on track. The Note 7 was a (big) road-bump in the grand scheme of things, so it makes sense that the company wants the show to go on. And the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro in China aims to do just that with a fair few “firsts” for a Samsung device.
Starting off, the Galaxy C9 Pro is the next addition to the C-series of devices, which unfortunately are restricted to the Chinese market. Nonetheless, the C9 Pro does bring a lot of new things to the table. The C9 Pro comes with a 6″ Super AMOLED FHD display on the front. The body is a metallic unibody construction, so sadly there is no removable battery on this device.
On the inside of the Galaxy C9 Pro is the newly released Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC with 4x 1.95GHZ Cortex-A72 cores and 4x 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores, becoming the first phone announced with this SoC. The C9 Pro also is the first Samsung phone to bear 6GB of RAM as the 6GB Note 7 never got released in China. You get 64GB of internal storage as well, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via the microsd slot. The phone also has a substantial 4,000 mAh battery, with Quick Charge support and USB Type-C port. The QC specification is not mentioned in the source, but the new Snapdragon 653 does support QC 3.0.
The phone also supports Dual-SIMs and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the TouchWiz skin on top. For the camera, the C9 Pro has a 16MP rear camera with f/1.9 aperture and PDAF. The front is also equally capable with a 16MP sensor and f/1.9 aperture.
The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is priced at CNY 3,199 (~$475) and is available for pre-orders in China, with sale expected to begin from November 11th onwards. Global availability of the device is unknown, and we doubt that this device will be made available globally.
