Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro specifications
As far as specifications are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro features a 6-inch full HD (1080p) Super AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass on top.

For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with f/1.9 aperture. The phablet also features a 4,000mAh battery, fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button, and Cirrus HiFi Codec for better audio performance.
Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, USB Type-C port, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. On the software front, the phablet runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out-of-the-box wrapped under TouchWiz UI.
If Samsung sticks to the Chinese pricing for India, the Galaxy C9 Pro will face competition from the likes of LeEco Le Max2 and the OnePlus 3 to name a few. While the specs and features are somewhat on par with the Galaxy C9 Pro, these smartphones are powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 processor. The Le Max2 also flaunts a QHD resolution display.
