Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro officially unveiled as the manufacturer's first phone with 6GB of RAM

Following a series of rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro has just become official a few minutes ago in China, which appears the only market that will receive the phone. Although the new Galaxy C9 Pro is definitely not a smartphone that can rival the iPhone 7 or replace the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, the handset stands out as Samsung's first smartphone to feature 6GB of RAM.

The display of the new Samsung Galaxy C9 is a 6-inch panel running at a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels.

On the inside beats the heart of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 653 chipset, a SoC that integrates an octa-core CPU consisting out of four blazing-fast ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores and four additional low-power ARM Cortex-A53 Cores. The Snapdragon 653 also integrates an Adreno 510 GPU. Overall, we're expecting to see pretty decent performance levels coming out of the Snapdragon 653, especially so for an upper mid-range device. 

When it comes to the design, the metal-build Galaxy C9 Pro appears to be a mix between the design language that Samsung adopts with most of its Galaxy phones, although we can definitely see some resemblance to Huawei's Mate phones as well as to Oppo's new R9 Plus.

In the memory department, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro features 6GB of RAM as well as 64GB of integrated storage space. If that's not enough storage space for the user's needs, a microSD card slot is there to the rescue.

As far as the imaging department is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy C9 is equipped with 16MP cameras on both the front and the back. Both lenses feature a wide f1.9 aperture.

Keeping the lights on is a 4,000mAh battery. The capacity is higher than on most smartphones, but the extra power consumption that a large 6-inch panel entails will probably translate into average battery life overall.

Other features include a fingerprint sensor embedded the home button, stereo speakers at the top and bottom, USB Type-C, a pair of 4G LTE SIM slots, as well as a Hi-Fi audio codec made by Cirrus. Furthermore, the Galaxy C9 Pro also comes with Samsung Pay, the technology that allows users to pay for goods and services with their phones on both NFC or MSFT terminals.

On the software side, Samsung's new Galaxy C9 will run Android 6.0.1 out of the box, with the company's own TouchWiz UX layer on top. 

The Galaxy C9 Pro comes in Gold and Rose Gold (both white a white front) and is priced at the equivalent of about 470 US dollars.

Don't knock a turbocharged 4 banger. My '13 Genesis Coupe can run with n/a V6 and V8

How about you noobs educate your self before spreading BS about 653? its almost on the same level as S820, QC had to gimp it down to not let it pass S820.

6GB will blow you away. Looks like an explosive upgrade from the Galaxy C4.

Sorry to disappoint, but no, it will not set your fruity colored hair on fire! C9 is just A9 in metal case. A9 has been out since beginning of 2016 in many regions and not a single incident of any kind!

If it's AMOLED, then the size doesn't make a difference in power consumption. Is this a Ray S. article?

that avg gpu can easily drive a full hd display and also play any game easily. Heck even the sd 625 in my zenfone 3 runs like champ.

"Keeping the lights on is a 4,000mAh battery". Yeah...if you are not careful it might do more than just keep the lights on. It might blow the entire grid.

You're trying too hard, bruh... But try getting some new material, as your joke/rant is kinda outdated, actually.

And it's still overpriced against any other Chinese branded Snapdragon 653 equivalents later on. ffs the A9 Pro here in Malaysia are at about 1+3 and Axon 7 prices.

It's almost common to know Samsung>Chinese brands in price.. Does that make all buy Chinese branded phones? No.

All? No. But also is there a need for Samsung to shoot themselves in the foot needlessly this way? A definite no...

You say that can't compete with the iPhone 7 but it certainly can on design. It is a 6" phone but I bet it isn't much bigger than the iphone 7 plus. It also has the same resolution screen that's Amoled which is much better than apples screen tech despite what phonearena keep saying (why do you think Apple are switching to Amoled?). I would choose pretty much ANY Amoled screen over LCD specially if it is a samsung one. Pretty sure the 16mp f1.9 front camera will give it a run or its money too.
