Galaxy C9 Pro launched in China, packed with RAM, new silicon
In a market as large and hardwaare-obsessed as China, Samsung really has to try and hit value hardware out of the park to help patch up its sales figures that would otherwise have gone to the now-deserted Galaxy Note 7.
In this case, it’s the Galaxy C9 Pro, a phone with the new Snapdragon 653 chipset, 6GB of RAM and a 6-inch full HD Super AMOLED screen. Both cameras have 16 megapixels of resolution with f/1.9 apertures, though the rear camera is accompanied by a dual-LED flash and phase detect autofocus. The Android 6.0 phone has a fingerprint sensor, dual SIM slots, 64GB of storage (microSD-expandable), and a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support.
The going price is ¥3,199 ($473) and sales begin in China on November 11.
