Samsung teases the Galaxy C9 as “the next big thing”

In between Galaxy Note 7 recalls, Samsung plans to launch yet another Android high-end smartphone, the Galaxy C9. The smartphone was sighted in benchmarks and more recently it received FCC's clearance in the United States.

Also known as Samsung SM-C9000, the smartphone has just been teased by the South Korean company as “the next big thing” that's coming soon. Although the teaser doesn't expressly refers to the Galaxy C9, it's the only smartphone that's been making headlines in the last couple of days.

If you've been following the news about the Galaxy C9, then you're probably aware that the smartphone is likely to be introduced in China first, but rumor has it that it will make it to the United States sometime in November as well.

The Galaxy C9 is definitely a premium smartphone if we are to believe the info we got from the benchmarks it has been spotted on. This is likely to be a metal-clad slab with a huge 6-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution.

Although the powerful Snapdragon 820 won't be the heart and soul of the Galaxy C9, the phone's Snapdragon 625 CPU should be a decent alternative, especially that it's coupled with no less than 6GB of RAM.

Another highlight of the phone is the 16-megapixel photo snapper on the back, but selfie fans won't be disappointed either since the Galaxy C9 packs a 16-megapixel front-camera as well. A large 4,000 mAh battery is keeping the lights on.

However, it's worth noting that these specs haven't been confirmed by Samsung yet, so take it with a grain of salt until the phone is made official.

The Snapdragon 652 processor would have bee a better choice. The 625 is not good enough for a "premium" mid range smart phone.

Garbage phone. The S4 N4 even any S800 is better than this midrange garbage. And it's the same price as the midrange. Though it's 2 years old.

Snapdragon 652 has got enough brute power, but it's not battery efficient cuz of its 28nm process. Snapdragon 625 is manufactured with 14nm process and gives you that sweet battery life. It's the individual's call as to what he prefers at the end of the day.

Have to say it's a slightly poor choice of model letter. C9... Considering the exploding Note 7, C4 references are open with the C9.
