It has been all over in the news that Samsung Galaxy C5 is in the making alongside another Galaxy C7, however, Samsung hasn’t made any official confirmation about this new product line.
Since last year, the company has been coming in with a different line of products, ranging from Samsung Galaxy A series to Galaxy J series. This year seems to be ready to receive a new lineup in the shape of Samsung Galaxy C series. Based on leaks, Samsung has been in the development process of the Galaxy C5’s firmware for the past few weeks and as of now, it seems things are really going well.
Pictures of Samsung Galaxy C5 have been rare to come by as opposed to Samsung Galaxy C7. However, this is finally over as new leaks have emerged with photos of the former in an all metal design, just like its larger sibling.
Samsung is doing an excellent job by bringing in metallic designs for its mid-range devices and keeping the metal and glass combination for its flagship end. This is huge for the company in terms of beating competition thanks to the fact that many buyers consider metallic builds to be more premium than using plastic. In recent times, Samsung has been keeping off plastic designs, even for its low-end devices and this trend seems to be here to stay.
A look at Samsung Galaxy C5 from the back might confuse you for an HTC phone from recent times. Whether buyers will relish the idea of having a Samsung device emulating the design of a competitor or not is still something to be told with time. Nonetheless, the specs of the Galaxy C5 might just be enough to convince a good number that this device is worth buying.
If the latest rumors materialize, we’ll see a Samsung Galaxy C5 device with a 5.2-inch FHD screen with 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the Galaxy C5 will include an 8-core Snapdragon 617 SoC clocked at a speed of 1.52GHz and a decent RAM of 4GB. While there are no finer details on the camera, the rear might probably feature a 13MP snapper with dual-tone LED flash. However, one thing that can be assured is that the device will be powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
According to Sam Mobile, Samsung Galaxy C5, and its sibling, Galaxy C7 will target the Chinese market. Even though there is no word of when or if these devices will also come to the U.S. and other markets, we hope that they do. There are also no details on the pricing, but since they are mid-rangers, expect anything less than $500.
