Samsung Galaxy C5 Passes FCC, U.S. Release Date Close

Samsung Galaxy C5 Release date

Samsung Galaxy C5 has reportedly passed FCC certifications ahead of its release in China in a few days’ time.

There are suggestions that Samsung Galaxy C5 alongside its counterpart Samsung Galaxy C7 will be unveiled to the public during a company event to be held on 26th of this week in China. As far as the U.S. launch is concerned, the details are not very clear, but we expect to see it here in the few weeks after its launch.

During the same event, some media houses are reporting that the company might use the event to unveil a series of other devices as well, but this is only going to affect the mid-range smartphone family. A few days ago, Samsung Galaxy C5 passed TENAA certifications and during the process, we got our eyes on some of the specs, features and images of what the upcoming Galaxy C5 will apparently rock.

Now, in what appears to be the latest news about the Galaxy C series, an FCC leak shows that Samsung Galaxy C5 has passed the tests that qualify it to be sold in the U.S. market and it will reportedly come with model number SM-C5000. With this leak, it means the Galaxy C5 might be here sooner than earlier expected, probably a few days after the phone’s official release in China.

As for Samsung Galaxy C7, which will carry model number SM-C7000, nothing has surfaced from TENAA nor FCC, but we still expect to see the phone unveiled alongside the C5 this coming Thursday.

Samsung Galaxy C5 leaked specs

According to the leaked FCC report, Samsung Galaxy C5 will pack a 2600mAh battery unit that will be powering a 5.2-inch AMOLED Full HD panel with 1080p resolution. As for those looking for great photography, the Galaxy C5 will pack a decent 16MP snapper on the rear, offering the same picture quality as last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6, but better off at the front with an 8MP selfie camera.

Given that the C5 is a mid-ranger, the phone will pack a Snapdragon 617 SoC that will be supported by a massive RAM of 4GB, just like what you get on the flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge as well as last year’s Note 5. Coming to down to the storage options will leave you with two variants to choose from – a 32GB option and a 64GB option. The good side of the story is that if you can’t afford the slightly costlier 64GB variant, you can expand the memory on the 32GB variant using a microSD card of up to 128GB, which is the same offering on the 64GB model.

When it comes to software, the Galaxy C5 will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board.

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy C5 will be sold at about $245 for the base model. However, this pricing is for those in China. As far as the U.S. market is concerned, there are no details so far, but we’ll be getting them soon for you. Keep following us.
