Some months ago, we were first introduced to the new Galaxy C series from Samsung. The Galaxy C5 and C7 were mid-range, metal-clad smartphones destined for the Chinese market, with fairly respectable specs for the prices. It now looks like that wasn’t all to the Galaxy C story this year. Samsung is allegedly preparing another tier up – the Galaxy C9.

This report came via SamMobile, which states that its ‘insiders’ revealed that Samsung is working on a new phone codenamed ‘Amy’ and with a model number SM-C9000, suggesting the Galaxy C9. Unfortunately, there were no other details shared, such as any specs or what the phone will look like.

We can infer, based on the C5 and C7, that the C9 will be metal-built and will be better spec’d than the C7. The C7 packed a 5.7” 1080p AMOLED display, Snapdragon 625 chipset, and 3,300 mAh battery, while the C5 was not too far behind with a 5.2” 1080p AMOLED display, Snapdragon 617 chipset, and 2,600 mAh battery. Both phones have rounded, uni-body metal construction, 4GB of RAM, and 32/64GB storage options. We can speculate that if the pattern continues, the Galaxy C9 may have a 6” or larger screen, Snapdragon 650-series chipset, and battery capacity closer to 4,000 mAh.

Additionally, there’s nothing to indicate that the Galaxy C9 will launch anywhere other than China (the C5 and C7 are still only sold there). Stay tuned for more information on the new Galaxy C entry as we’re able to scoop up more.
