Among mobile users based in the United States, perhaps the most popular smartphones of Samsung are those that belong to the company’s Galaxy S lineup of devices. But as expected of the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices, the South Korean phone maker has plenty more other series of handsets. Americans may have heard of the Galaxy A range or the Galaxy J range, but Samsung actually has other less well known brands.
One of them is the Galaxy C family of smartphones, and Samsung has just launched the newest addition to this lineup. It is called the Galaxy C9 Pro, and basically it is a phablet that comes with a 6 inch screen, plus some impressive specifications, such as 6 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), a 4,000 mAh battery, and an AMOLED screen that offers a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels.
But alas -- according to a report published by the Indian Express, the Galaxy C9 Pro phablet is only made available in the Chinese mobile market (the device will also hit the Indian mobile market by February of this year). So why exactly is Samsung choosing to release its latest phablet only in China and India? Not many people may realize this, but China and India happen to be two of the most critical markets for smartphone devices across the globe right now. The reason? The sheer size of both, with each market bigger than the US mobile market. Need more proof of the significance of these two markets? Nokia, which is trying to manufacture a true comeback this year, is looking to launch its latest smartphone offering, the Android powered Nokia 6, as an exclusive for mobile users based in China.
Back to the Galaxy C9 Pro -- it is natural for Samsung fans to start comparing this latest model with the disastrousGalaxy Note 7. They should know that overall, the Galaxy C9 Pro actually can hold its own. It features 16 megapixel cameras on both the rear and front side, compared to the Galaxy Note 7’s 12 megapixel and 5 megapixel cameras. The new phablet’s 6 gigabytes of RAM also easily bests the Galaxy Note 7’s 4 gigabytes of RAM. But in some other specs, the Galaxy C9 Pro may find itself without a clear advantage. For instance, the fact that it packs only a 1.44 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 chip set is not as cool as the Snapdragon 820 utilized in the Galaxy Note 7.
