Apparently, South Korean manufacturer Samsung is planning to add a new model to its Galaxy C line-up, according to a Geekbench listing.
We’re talking about a smartphone going by the code name SM-C9000, believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S9, previously spotted on Indian import export website Zauba, sporting a price tag of Rs. 17,107, which roughly translates to $257. Of course, it’s well known that this value doesn’t always reflect the actual market price, so the phone will, most likely, cost more.
Spec-wise, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy C9 will come with a pretty massive display, measuring 5.7 inches. We don’t know anything about the resolution yet, but it should be at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Moving on, the handset is expected to have an octa-core Qualcomm-made CPU under the hood, running at 1.4 GHz, and, probably the most important feature, 6 GB of RAM. This is absolutely impressive, considering that no other Samsung handset has this amount, not even flagships, which come with 4 GB.
Of course, this specific detail shouldn’t be taken as granted. A few months ago, some sources were claiming that Samsung would launch a Galaxy Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM, just for China, in order to compete with other Chinese manufacturer. Sadly, this never happened.
Back to the Samsung Galaxy C9, it will also feature 32 GB of internal storage, expandable with up to 256 more, a 13 MP rear-mounted camera, with auto-focus, and an 8 MP front-facing one, while the battery should have a capacity around 3800 mAh. Basically, it will have almost the same specs as the Galaxy A9 (2016).
Currently, Samsung’s Galaxy C line-up, consisting in the Galaxy C5 and C7, are currently available just in China, so it’s obvious that the C9 will initially launch just here, while other regions should follow in the near future.
