Rumours and speculations have been aplenty about the upcoming launch of Samsung's flagship model Galaxy S8 as it will be the first samrtphone to be launched by the company after the Galaxy S7 disaster. It is probably the last chance for the South-Korean smartphone maker to regain the trust of the market.

But amid all the zest about the S8, Samsung has launched Galaxy C9 Pro, which comes with a 6-inch screen, making it the latest phablet by the company. And it's only officially available in China. India is next in the line.

The Galaxy C9 Pro has 6GB RAM, a 4,000mAh battery and an AMOLED 1,920x1,080-pixel display. And if you can't wait to get your hands on this beauty you might be able to snag it online for around $500, which is much cheaper than what Samsung was charging before Galaxy Note 7s, while C9 Pro has some advantages over the Note 7.

For example C9 Pro comes with 16MP cameras on both the rear and front, whereas the Note 7 had 12MP and 5MP. Yes I know what you geeks are thinking, "more megapixels isn't always better" but it also has a 6 GB RAM compared to that of Note 7's 4 GB.

The fact that Galaxy C9 Pro is exclusive for China and India shows the superiority of the phone markets of these two countries, which is much larger than that of the US. Another example for that is Nokia's comeback phone the Nokia 6 is also supposed to set foot in the market as a China exclusive initially.
