While all eyes of media and smartphone enthusiasts are set on Samsung’s next flagship smartphone Galaxy S8, the OEM has quietly swept off the accolades for its first C series smartphone in India. The Galaxy C9 Pro which landed in India only last month has gone down well with consumers. The phone sold out pretty quick, with the OEM putting up an ‘out of stock’ banner on its India website. However, it is back once again. Seems like sensing the huge demand, Samsung didn’t spare any moment to get it back on stock ASAP.
Samsung India website has the phone listed in two color options- black and gold with ‘shipments starting from March 3rd’. This has been postponed from February 24th, proof enough of the high demand which the company is trying by all means to keep up with.
The Galaxy C9 Pro is Samsung’s first 6GB smartphone which was released in China back in September 2016 in Rose and Rose Gold color choices. The Black color variant too joined the list later. Post China launch, the phone has been released in many other countries including India where it was released on January 18th at a price of Rs 36,900.
Galaxy C9 Pro is Samsung’s first full metal phone with less visible antenna lines. Specsheetwise, it sports a big 6.0-inch Full HD IPS display powered by octa-core Snapdragon 653 SoC clocked at 1.9GHz. The RAM as already mentioned is 6GB and the ROM is 64GB which is further expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. Adding to the premium specs is the 16MP/16MP camera combo and fingerprint scanner housed with physical home button on front. The phone is shipped with Android Marshmallow out of the box.
