Last week, a report emerged online claiming that Samsung is working on a new smartphone Galaxy C9 under the code-name "Project Amy." Now, more details of the rumoured device have surfaced online.
Samsung's handset with model-number SM-C9000, understood be the Galaxy C9, has appeared on Zauba.com, an export-import logistic company website.
In the manifest, the company has shipped eight units of the Galaxy C9 (SM-C9000) to New Delhi from its home country South Korea. It also reveals the device will sport 5.7-inch screen and costs Rs. 17,107 apiece, giving us the first real evidence to believe its existence.
It is believed that the Galaxy C9 units are prototypes and have been imported to India for testing, as Samsung has R&D center in New Delhi (apart from Bengaluru and Noida).
There is no word on key features of the Galaxy C9, but going by the price details, it is expected to be a mid-range smartphone. If we were to guess based on the smartphones having similar price range in the market, Galaxy C9 may come with 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 13MP primary camera, 5MP front snapper and 2,700/3,000mAh battery.
In related development, Samsung's soon-to-be launched Galaxy On7 (2016) made an appearance on the U.S. government owned FCC (Federal Communication Commission) website revealing key specifications of device.
It measures 151.5 x 74.9 x 8.0 mm in dimensions and weighs 166.7g. Under-the-hood, it is said to come packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, 13MP camera, 8MP front snapper, a 3,300mAh battery.
There are reports on when the Galaxy On7 (2016) will be released, but if go by previous launch patterns, it is expected to make its debut by the end of August or in early September.
Usually smartphones after getting FCC certifications, get launched within a month.
