It appears like Samsung is getting ready to launch Galaxy C9, a new handset from its C-series. The company is yet to reveal the exact release date of the handset, but its launch is imminent as it has received the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification.

Samsung Galaxy C9 has been spotted on Zauba, an imports and exports tracking site in India, for testing with model number SM-C9000 and a price tag of Rs 17,107 (price may change at the time of launch). It has also been spotted on benchmarking sites AnTuTu and GeekBench, giving a clear hint that its release may not be far off.

The device will come with a six-inch FullHD display with 920x1080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, a 6GB RAM, and dual 16MP cameras, according to benchmarking sites. It is also expected to run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system and powered by a 4,000mAh battery.

It is also reported that the device will share several features with the recently releases Galaxy C5, which is exclusive to Chinese market, but no specific features have been mentioned.

Galaxy C5 sports a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 1,920×1,080 pixels, powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
