Samsung has been slowly moving away from smartphones with plastic bodies as evident from the latest releases in the Samsung Galaxy series.
The South Korean giant learnt their lesson the hard way after customers grew tired of seeing cheap materials on their expensive gadgets. The Galaxy J is probably the one series that has presence of plastic. Samsung had tried to spice up the device by providing metal edges. Users will now be able to buy an all metal smartphone even in the midrange segment after rumors that Samsung is preparing to launch the Galaxy C smartphone.
Even though the device is expected to look very similar to the flagship Galaxy S7, it will have some crucial differences required to bring down the cost. Performance is expected to be better than average due to the use of a Snapdragon 617 processor. Rated at 1.52 gigahertz each, the phone should be surprisingly good in terms of performance. More than the processor, it is surprising since the phone is expected to come with 4 GB of RAM. This should give it a major boost compared with the competition, which largely come with 2 or 3 GB at the most.
At present, there is a substantial difference between the Galaxy J and the Galaxy A. The Galaxy J relies on more than just basic smartphone features in order to get the job done. However, it sacrifices when it comes to design, but the Galaxy A leaps ahead with its all metal body.
This new series will fill the gap between the two. Despite being a midrange phone, it is expected to ship with Android 6.0 out of the box. Samsung has also promised to reduce its bloatware significantly. Recent high-end phones have been a testament to this fact.
An official launch is expected to come in the next few months. Details about aspects like the display size are not available yet, but they could soon be out as the launch date approaches. Even if the phone has a quite large 5.2 inch+ screen, it is expected to offer only full HD 1080p as its maximum resolution. It may not be surprising to see the device come with a 12-megapixel camera without 4K video recording capabilities. These are areas where Samsung will be hoping to make a product with great pricing.
The Galaxy C is initially expected to be available only in the Chinese market. Depending on the success, it may be launched in other markets.
