Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro: Snapdragon 653, 6GB RAM, 4000mAh battery

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro

The first Samsung smartphone to get 6GB of RAM.

Samsung has formally announced the Galaxy C9 Pro in China. The phone was previously spotted in a leak just days before today’s unveiling.

The metallic unibody design is very familiar. In fact, it’s practically the same as other recent mid-range Galaxy smartphones with the exception of tiny elements. What’s interesting here is the appearance of three thin antenna lines, similar to the sleek design of the OPPO R9S.


Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is quite big, with the screen stretching 6-inches diagonally. It’s got a 1080p Super AMOLED display and pixel density of 367. Qualcomm’s follow-up to the popular 652, the Snapdragon 653, powers the phablet together with Adreno 510 graphics.

While it’s large on the screen and overall footprint, it’s incredibly thin measuring at only 162.9 x 80.7 x 6.9 mm. The weight is just right at 189 grams.

Storage wouldn’t be an issue as it features 64GB out of the box, with an option to increase it even further by using a microSD card.


For the camera, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro has a 16-megapixel shooter at the back with f/1.9 aperture and phase detection autofocus. The camera in front is equally good, having a 16-megapixel sensor and f/1.9.

It has a sizable 4000mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging. A USB Type-C port also replaces the soon to be legacy microUSB 2.0.
