Samsung Galaxy C9 surfaced a few days ago on Indian import/export tracker Zauba. That listing did not reveal much, as usual, but the size of the screen is more than nothing - according to the brief description of the device on Zauba, the upcoming handset will join the phablet category, packing a generous 6-inch display. Now, its appearance on Geekbench delivers a few technical specs as well.
The model benchmarked is labeled SM-C9000 and has the following highlights: Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC with Adreno 510 graphics, no less than 6 GB of memory, but only runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The Geekbench scores achieved by this setup are 1304 for single-core tests and 4366 multi-core points.
The Samsung Galaxy C family has been only available in China so far. The Galaxy C9 is expected to become the leading handset of this lineup, and maybe international availability will follow after its launch as well. However, nothing is official yet, so we should wait for the new Galaxy C device to become official. According to Phone Arena, this could happen as soon as next month.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
