Samsung has launched Galaxy C9 Pro in China after weeks of speculations. It was earlier reported that the device would be named Galaxy C9, but it has turned out to be Galaxy C9 Pro. Now, the big question is whether the device is made exclusively for Chinese market or will be made available in other markets, including India.

Going by history, it appears like Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro will not be released in India and other markets. The South Korean technology giant released the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 a few months ago. It was speculated that the devices would be released outside China, but that never happened.
