The Galaxy C9 Pro is now official, and it’s notable because it’s Samsung’s first smartphone with 6GB of RAM. Yep, that means that it’s got even more RAM than recent flagships like the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7.
That’s not the only “6” on the Galaxy C9 Pro’s spec list, because it also offers a 6-inch 1920x1080 Super AMOLED display on its face and 16-megapixel cameras on both its front and rear. Meanwhile, the inside of the C9 Pro is home to 64GB of storage, and the software that it comes preloaded with is Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Rounding out the Galaxy C9 Pro’s feature set is an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, microSD card slot, fingerprint reader, FM radio, and a USB Type-C port. Powering the whole package is a 4000mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro will launch in India in February 27 at a price of INR 36,900 ($541 USD). It’ll be available in black and gold color options.
While the Galaxy C9 Pro’s 6-inch display may be too large for some folks, it looks like a solid device for phablet fans out there. The big screen would be nice for watching videos, and features like the pair of 16-megapixel cameras and 6GB of RAM are attractive to spec hounds. Unfortunately, there’s no word future C9 Pro launches in other markets.
