Rumors about the Galaxy C9 Pro had been around for a while, and they are pretty accurate about how the new handset would become. To end all the rumors and speculations, Samsung officially announced the new Galaxy C9 Pro. A smartphone primarily design for the Chinese market but if it would have the same faith as the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 which became available in our local market, we might just be lucky to have the handset in our shores officially soon.

The Galaxy C9 Pro lived up to the name of being the Pro, in terms of specs, the new handset is marketed as Samsung’s first of the kind device to incorporate 6GB of RAM, though it might not be able replace the status of the now discontinued Galaxy Note7, the C9 Pro has its own unique features that’s not included with Samsung’s high-end devices (for now).

It comes with a relatively large display at 6-inches and with a 1920 x 1080p display resolutions. It’s a full metal smartphone so the premium feel is there.


Its full metal body is madeout of aerospace aluminum alloy with a unique three-band antenna lines for better reception. Its contours and grooves makes it easy to grab and hold.

What powers the devices is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 Octa-core processor that includes 4-cores of Cortex-A72 and 4-cores of low-power Cortex-A53’s. It also incorporates an Adreno 510 graphics processor for better performance and lag-free experience.

So there’s the 6GB RAM for the needy power user and of course a standard 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded through a microSD card, we’re not sure if what the maximum microSD card is supported but given the handset being the latest, it should be safe to assume that it will at least support the newest 256 GB capacity cards.


For the imaging department, the C9 Pro includes a 16 Megapixel camera both on the front and back with a widef/1.9 aperture lens. It also comes with a host of image filters that you could play with a make your photos look stunning and great.


More for the multimedia entertainment, the new handset features another first for Samsung with dual speakers. There’s the traditional loudspeaker grill at the bottom for low frequency and the earpiece for that matter takes care of the highs which then produces a stereo speaker output.

Other standard features also comes with the handset and that includes a fingerprint scanner, NFC with support for Samsung Pay, USB Type-C interface. Then there’s 4G/LTE support and legacy support for 3G and GSM, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.


The Galaxy C9 Pro runs on 4000 mAh embedded battery and is handled by Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz UX interface on top. It will soon be available exclusively (for now) in China for an equivalent of $450. Users may choose with either Gold and Rose Gold color options andnothing else but a white colored front.
