Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would have been the ideal android phone of the year but it explodes, with this in mind; Samsung ought to make up for this by coming up with an ideal replacement for this phone. There have been rumors out there that Samsung intends to release another phablet later this year. This move will necessitate that Samsung goes against tradition and release a phablet; it is said that the phone is expected to be the premium type, rumors some say it will the Samsung Galaxy C9, as a move to surprise Samsung fans, this would be a great move for Samsung to make since it's users barely expect the phablet.


Samsung might have had the release of the Samsung Galaxy C9 in mind even before the Note 7 explosions; who knows? it might as well be a counter move to curb the effects of the unsuccessful Galaxy Note 7. However, the timing raises numerous questions as to whether the C9 was pre-planned even before the Note 7's disaster. The Samsung Galaxy C9 might have been made as a midrange smartphone, whichever the case, the phone will be distinguishable from the Note 7 mess. Reports by phone arena claim that the C9 is likely to be a premium flagship phone.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 is expected to run from an Android 6.0 out of the box; the display is expected to be 1080by 1920 pixels resolution on a 6-inch phablet screen. The C9 is expected to take performance to the next level with a snapdragon 652 and an outstanding 6GB RAM and an internal storage of 6GB. Talking about the camera, the C9 will facilitate high quality selfies with a 16MP front and back cameras; in a report produced by the GSM Arena, the C9 will come with a 4000mAh battery.


Samsung experienced an awful ordeal with the Note 7 and having learned its lessons, its only right that the giant manufacturer spends more time developing the Note 8; to avoid more explosions. In a calculated strategy, it is thought that Samsung intends to launch the less superior C9 so that its users can afford it. This is the idea behind the less powerful performance and display.
