The long-rumoured Samsung Galaxy C9 might finally see the light of the day, if the newly released teaser is to be believed.

Samsung China has released a poster on Weibo showing a metal-clad smartphone with the tag "The next big thing is coming". Though there is no mention of the device name, it is widely believed that the mystery phone may be the Galaxy C9.

Recently, Galaxy C9 passed the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) certification revealing that the device will have a mammoth 6.0-inch screen, which apparently fits the tag on the official teaser.

Besides the big screen, the Galaxy C9 is expected to come with top-notch camera hardware. It is said to boast two 16MP cameras on both front and back. There is no word on whether it will have dedicated LED flash on the front, but going by the recently released photo-centric devices, Samsung might probably incorporate the flash system, as it enhances photography experience.

It is also said to feature full HD (1920x1080p) display, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core and 4,000 mAh battery, which is enough to the keep it running the whole day under mixed usage.
