Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro gets a huge discount in India

The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is at the receiving end of yet another discount in India, making this the second cut it’s gotten since it arrived. The company hasn’t announced the markdown officially yet, with Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom first highlighting the news via its Twitter account.

To recall, the Galaxy C9 Pro made its debut in India back in January 2017 at Rs 36900. Samsung then slashed the price of the phone in June to sell it at Rs 31900. The handset is now available at Rs 29900, a further Rs 2000 drop. Overall, the company’s lowered the cost by a hefty Rs 7000.

The new Rs 29900 rate isn’t live on Samsung’s eStore yet. The device is still vending at Rs 31900 there and it’s unclear when or if the brand will change that figure. Third-party online outlets like Amazon India are offering it at Rs 29900 though, as well as offline shops like the above mentioned Mahesh Telecom.

While the Galaxy C9 Pro is several months old at this point of time, it’s still got a lot going for it. The phone packs an impressive 6GB of RAM and sports a large 6-inch Super AMOLED 1080p screen. However, it still runs on the outdated Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The brand hasn’t stated when it’ll be updating the handset to Nougat yet.
