Samsung Galaxy C9 release date, specs: Upcoming smartphone spotted at TENAA, device to launch alongside Galaxy C9 Pro?


Samsung is about to roll out a new device as its other flagship, the Galaxy C9, has already been certified in the United States by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Now, the device is said to have received certification from China’s regulatory agency, TENAA, and this means that the phone could be announced very soon.

According to Phone Arena, TENAA released some vital information about the Galaxy C9, revealing that the phone will have a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. This means that the phone will be slightly bigger than its predecessor, the Galaxy C7, as the current device has a 5.7-inch screen with the same resolution as the C9.

It was also claimed that the upcoming device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 chipset with 6 GB of random access memory (RAM), along with 64 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128 GB via a microSD card.

But perhaps, the Galaxy C9’s most attractive feature is its cameras, as the smartphone is said to have a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 16-megapixel front shooter. The front-facing camera, which is a vast improvement over the current model’s 8-megapixel front sensor, will possibly send selfie enthusiasts racing to Samsung stores as some of the best phones for selfies, such as the LG G5, only have an 8-megapixel front sensor while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a 5-megapixel front shooter.

It was also said that the Galaxy C9 could come in only one color Gold and will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Meanwhile, a new teaser hints that the smartphone could launch alongside the Galaxy C9 Pro. According to Gadgets.NDTV, the teaser, which was first picked up by Galaxy Club by Weibo, says that the C9 Pro will feature the “Next level of antenna craftsmanship.” Other than hinting that the phone will be available in Rose Gold, no other details have been given about the Galaxy C9 Pro.
