Samsung seems to be preparing to release one more device from its C-series, the Galaxy C9. The company unveiled the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 in May this year before releasing them into the market the following month, and now it appears to be working on a new handset from the C family.
The South Korean technology giant is working on a device codenamed "Amy" with model number SM-C9000. It will be called the Galaxy C9, reported SamMobile, citing an insider. It went on to claim that the new handset shares several features with the Galaxy C5 and sports a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display as seen in the Galaxy A9.
It is still not known when the Galaxy C9 will be released and if it will be made available outside China. The Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 hit the stores in China in June but they are yet to be launched in other markets. It was reported that they would be exclusive to China.
The Galaxy C5 features a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 1,920×1,080 pixels, an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a 32/64GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card), and a 4GB RAM. It also has a 16MP main camera with f/1.9 aperture, an 8MP front-snapper with f/1.9 aperture, and a 2,600mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. It comes with a price tag of 2199 Yuan (around $335 / Rs. 22,500) for the 32GB model, and 2399 Yuan (around $365 / Rs. 24,500) for the 64GB variant.
