The smartphone, meant to the India for now, is a great package. Its design that looks like the OnePlus 3T‘s is sleek and simple having smooth curves that cover its back and a hefty 6-inch panel taking up nearly the whole of the front.

The screen makes use of Samsung‘s Super AMOLED technology, while adhering to a sound 1080p resolution. Under that is the physical home button, which works as a fingerprint reader as well, intervened between Galaxy devices’ usual capacitive keys. The frame has the other keys in addition to a headphone jack and a USB-C port.
For the audio, the downward-facing speaker steals a page from the playbook of iPhone 7. It uses the top earpiece to create a tiny stereo system. Cameras feature top specifications having a pair of 16MP eyes with an ultra-wide f/1.9 aperture.
While the Snapdragon 652 may not completely live up to Samsung’s assertion of a “powerhouse” device, a 6GB of RAM and 4000mAh battery should give a great boost to performance. It’s a disgrace that the Galaxy C9 Pro features Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, with no reference of Nougat.
The device Galaxy C9 Pro is expected to hit the shelves latter in February and preorders starting from January 27. Black and Gold are the versions that will be accessible for now. The 64GB model is priced at INR 36,900 (USD 540).
