Samsung Galaxy C9 (SM-C9000) is certified by TENAA; picture reveals slot antenna design

Samsung Galaxy C9 (SM-C9000) is certified by TENAA; picture reveals slot antenna design
The Samsung Galaxy C9 has already been certified in the U.S. by the FCC. Now, the handset has received certification from TENAA, which is the Chinese equivalent of the U.S. regulatory agency. Unlike the documentation released by the FCC, TENAA releases much more information pertaining to the specs of a smartphone, and includes four photographs of the device being examined.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 (SM-C9000) is the top-of-the-line smartphone in the Galaxy C series, which includes the Samsung Galaxy C5 and the Samsung Galaxy C7. The Galaxy C9 is equipped with a 6-inch AMOLED display, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 652 chipset, featuring an octa-core 2GHz CPU and the Adreno 510 GPU.

Inside the model is 6GB of RAM, along with 64GB of internal memory; those seeking additional storage can access the 128GB capacity microSD slot. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the unit, while a front-facing 16MP snapper handles selfies and video chats. Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. The unit is only 6.9mm thin, but weighs 185 grams. It also is available in just one color, Gold.

One interesting note thing about the Galaxy C9 can be found on the back of the unit. There you will find the same slot antenna design on the back as seen on the Oppo R9s. This design certainly looks better than the ugly antenna lines that some smartphone manufacturers used to employ. In addition, they reportedly do a better job of preventing your hands from interfering with the signal strength.
