Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 fiasco has put the world's largest smartphone maker in a dark place, but it is not giving up so easily. Despite the letdown, Samsung has pulled up its socks to make a difference and remain dominant in the smartphone space.

After an early leak, Samsung officially unveiled its latest Galaxy C9 Pro smartphone in China on Saturday, joining the likes of OnePlus 3, Xiaomi 5s Plus and Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. All these smartphones have one thing in common – 6GB RAM – which ensures lag-free performance and high endurance to power-hungry apps. Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is priced at ¥3,199 (approx. Rs. 32,000) and available for pre-orders.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro's international availability is not known at the moment, but it can be a true disrupter in the market. Besides 6GB RAM, the Galaxy C9 Pro packs decent configuration. It is powered by a Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor with Adreno 510 GPU and 64GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD cards.

The new smartphone has a premium metal design and a large 6-inch AMOLED display with 1080x1920 pixels resolution. The Galaxy C9 Pro sports a 16MP front and rear cameras with f/1.9 aperture for low-light photography. The rear camera is accompanied by a dual tone flash module.

Like many Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy C9 Pro sports a physical home button, which has integrated fingerprint scanner for security. It also has a USB Type-C port, which is the new standard for premium phones.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro comes in rose gold and gold hues and supports dual SIM, 4G LTE, VoLTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and 3.5mm headphones. The device will be available from November 11.
