Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro

Samsung is intent to move past the Note 7 fiasco and get its business back on track. The Note 7 was a (big) road-bump in the great scheme of things, so it makes sense that the company wants the show to go on. And the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro in China intend 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 sadly are restricted to the Chinese market. Nonetheless, the C9 Pro does bring a lot of new stuff to the table. The C9 Pro comes with a 6″ Super AMOLED FHD display on the front. The body is a metallic unibody frame, so sadly there is no removable battery on this device.

On the inside of the Galaxy, C9 Pro is the newly launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC with 4x 1.95GHZ Cortex-A72 cores and 4x 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores, convert 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 launched in China. You get 64GB of internal storage as well, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via the micro sd slot. The phone also has a substantial 4,000 mAh battery, with Quick Charge support and USB Type-C port. The QC descriptions is not mentioned in the source, but the new Snapdragon 653 does support QC 3.0.

The phone also carry Dual-SIMs and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the TouchWiz skin on top. For the camera, the C9 Pro has a 16MP back camera with f/1.9 aperture and PDAF. The front is also equally capable with a 16MP sensor and f/1.9 aperture.
