Earlier today, an unannounced smartphone with Galaxy branding passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. Sadly, the information included in the filing doesn’t reveal anything about the device. It simply states that the handset carries the model number SM-C9000, which leads us to believe we’re looking at the very same Galaxy C9 that was imported into India for testing two weeks ago.
Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to confirm any of the specifications the unit will pack. Although, a couple of recent benchmarking tests suggest that it’ll sport a 6-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 625 chipset, a colossal 6GB of RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 16MP selfie shooter and a 4,000mAh non-removable battery. It’s also expected to ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow pre-installed, but will receive the Nougat update.
Seeing as the Galaxy C9 has already received the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification certificates it needs to debut on the open market, it shouldn’t be too much longer until it hits the shelves. It’s rumored to launch in China by the end of October and will be available in the United States by mid-November. At this precise moment in time, there’s no information that hints towards the handset being released in Europe.
