Galaxy C9 Pro gets a price cut in India

The Galaxy C9 Pro, which was launched in India earlier this year with a price tag of INR 36,990 ( approx. $575), has now received a price cut. Samsung has now dropped the price of its costliest Galaxy C-series device to INR 31,990 (approx. $499). The company recently dropped the price of the Galaxy C7 Pro from INR 27,990 (approx. $435) to INR 25,990 (approx. $404).

The Galaxy C9 Pro features a 6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel primary camera, and a 16-megapixel secondary camera. Both cameras feature f/1.9 aperture and 1080p video recording. Under the hood, it is equipped with a 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor. There’s 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A 128GB storage variant of the smartphone might be released soon in a few markets.

The phone also comes with stereo speakers, a fingerprint sensor, storage expansion slot, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and a large 4,000 mAh battery. There’s a USB Type-C and 3.5mm headphone ports. The phone was first launched in China, then its availability expanded to Malaysia, India, and a few other markets. The phone is costlier than the Galaxy A7 (2017), but it misses out on Samsung Pay and water resistance.
