Samsung is all set to launch a new smartphone in China on Friday, widely expected to be the Galaxy C9. The company is also anticipated to launch a variant called the Galaxy C9 Pro. Now, just hours ahead of the launch, the latter phone has been listed on major Chinese online retailer T-Mall. The listing is complete with price, specifications, and images. The smartphone is not yet available to buy.
The dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro sports a CNY 3,199 (roughly Rs. 31,700) price tag, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There are several highlights of the smartphone – such as a 6-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Amoled display, 6GB of RAM, and a 4000mAh battery with fast charging support. The smartphone is listed in Gold and Rose Gold colour variants.
The Galaxy C9 Pro is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor, which was unveiled by Qualcomm at its 4G/5G Summit event in Hong Kong earlier this week, sporting four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 1.95GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.44GHz. It bears a 16-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and an f/1.9 aperture, and a 16-megapixel front-facing camera – another highlight of the smartphone.
The smartphone also bears a fingerprint sensor on its home button. The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).
