Samsung Philippines has just launched its latest mid-range smartphone for the Philippine market, the Galaxy C9 Pro.

When we see the word Pro, it usually means something bigger, and more powerful. And that is indeed a fact for this smartphone. Despite sporting a very slim form factor, it sports a huge 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass protection, which should be perfect for media consumption and gaming.

As for imaging, the C9 Pro sports 16MP cameras on both the front and back. This means that you’ll get the same great quality on selfies as you do with normal stills. The device also has a 4000mAh battery and runs on Samsung’s custom skin on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
