CES in now well underway and so far, there has been a number of interesting announcements being given and devices being shown off. Only yesterday we got to see two new devices which look to be en route to the U.S. in 2016 from Japanese manufacturer, Freetel. These are the Freetel Kiwami and the Freetel Musashi. Today, TP-LINK, who are more associated with computer network products have announced three new smartphones which are to be available soon. In fact. TP-LINK has announced a new smartphone brand, along with the announcing of the new smartphones. The brand is Neffos and the three devices that have now been confirmed for Neffos make up the C5 series, in the form of the C5, C5L and C5 Max.

As to be expected, the C5 is the standard version of the series and this one is said to come with a 5-inch display which makes use of a 1280 x 720 resolution. Inside, the C5 is equipped with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and powered by a 64-bit MediaTek (MT6735) Quad-core processor. Cameras on offer include an 8-megapixel rear camera, which is coupled with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. In contrast, the C5L looks to be the more entry-level offering and this one comes sporting a smaller 4.5-inch FWVGA display. Inside, the C5L comes equipped with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 Quad-core processor. In terms of cameras, it would seem the C5L makes use of the same 8MP/5MP rear/front camera combination. Moving on and completing the new line up is the C5 Max, which looks to be the more premium variant. This one comes sporting a larger 5.5-inch display which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the C5 Max offers 2GB RAM and also comes powered by a MediaTek (MT6753) Octa-core processor. Along with a 13-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Besides the main announcement, there are few details being provided on the actual availability of the new C5 series from Neffos. As such, there are no firm details on pricing or on when they will be available to buy or even in which regions. Although, they are expected to land running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop).
