The Snapdragon 653 is an octa-core chip, which will be slightly faster than the Snapdragon 652 used in the Galaxy A9 Pro, however, the phone has 6GB of RAM, when compared to the 4GB of RAM in the latter.
Hardware wise, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro comes with 64GB of internal storage with support for expandable storage up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The Galaxy C9 Pro comes packed with a 16MP camera on both front and rear and both of them feature f/1.9 aperture and can record videos of 1080p resolution.
This massive 6-inch phablet boots Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and comes with a 4000mAh battery. Also, Samsung might roll out the Android 7.0 Nougat update to this phone as well.
Speaking at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro, Aditya Babbar, Deputy General Manager of Mobile Business, Samsung, said as follows: “India is one of the fastest growing smartphone markets.
