According to TENAA, Samsung Galaxy C9 is expected to sport a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen with 1,920×1,080 resolution, measure 162.9x80.7x6.9 mm in dimension, and weighs 185 g. It is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, come packed with 6GB RAM, and house 4000mAH battery.

It is not known if the device will be released in India, but many will like to believe that it will be exclusive to Chinese market. Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7, the first handsets from Samsung's C-series, were released in China a few months ago and not made available in other markets, including India. So, the upcoming Galaxy C9 too may follow its predecessors.
