Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro Release Date, Specs, Price & Rumors [VIDEO]; Leak Hints 6GB Of RAM
It looks like Samsung is on a roll. The South Korean handset maker is leaving no stone unturned in its bid to repair the damage done to its brand image following the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. In line with this, the company has unveiled its much awaited Galaxy C9 Pro smartphone model in an event in China.
Rumor mills have been churning a slew of speculations around the Galaxy C9 Pro, but with the unveiling of the device, these speculations can finally be confirmed or denied. It's worth noting that the Galaxy C9 Pro is Samsung's first handset to come with a mammoth 6GB of RAM, which is undoubtedly a prime selling point in the spec-dominated Chinese market, according to GSM Arena.
Galaxy fans already have an idea about specs for the C9 Pro thanks to a recently surfaced leak. The unit is said to sport a metal exterior that is further augmented with curves that gives it a cosmetic appearance identical to the Oppo R9s and R9s Plus.
Moreover, it is tipped to come with a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen paired with 1920 x 1089 pixel Full-HD resolution. The C9 Pro packs a powerful Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor, and features a built-in 64GB storage, according to Android Community.
Furthermore, the C9 Pro sports a 16MP rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, and phase detection autofocus. It features another 16MP sensor for the selfie addicts.
The memory capacity of the C9 Pro can be further expanded via the microSD card slot. In terms of connectivity, the unit features a dual-SIM functionality, 802.11n Wi-Fi, NFC, 4G support, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS. Unlike some of the popular devices, the C9 Pro will not scrap the 3.5mm headset jack. It will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The C9 Pro weighs in at 189g, and its dimensions are 162.9 x 80.7 x 6.9mm.
Consumers in China can pre-order the smartphone in rose gold from the company's online store for CNY 3,199 (about $471). The C9 Pro hits the store shelves on Nov. 11.
