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.
