Samsung is teasing a new metal clad smartphone on its Weibo account in China. The image shows a completely black smartphone with barely noticeable antenna line on the top. The metal body seems to have rounded edges. No official details are out yet.
The picture only reads, “the next big thing is coming”. But rumour mills are already calling this the Galaxy C9. According to GSMArena, this seems to be the same device that was leaked on the FCC certification site as well as on import site Zauba.
In terms of specifications, the upcoming Galaxy C9 is expected to sport a 6-inch FullHD display. The phone will be running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 which has an octa-core processor along with Adreno 510 GPU. It is expected to be coming with 6GB of RAM. There will be a 16MP rear camera on board.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be running on the C9 out of the box. On the storage front, you will get 64GB internal storage along with a microSD card slot to expand the storage. It is also touted to house a 4000mAh battery inside.
The Galaxy C9 is expected to release sometime in October or November.
