Samsung already sells Android smartphones under a number of ‘Galaxy’ names. The company’s Galaxy J, Galaxy A and Galaxy S handsets are quite popular all over the world, not to mention the ‘Note’ line, but it seems like the company is planning to release yet another sub-brand. The company’s Galaxy C5 smartphone surfaced on GeekBench quite recently, and was followed by the Galaxy C7 which popped up on AnTuTu. It was just a matter of time before we see yet another leak, well... read on.
The Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) has popped up yet again, this time on GFXBench. According to the listing, the device will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, along with the Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. The 16-megapixel snapper will be placed on the back of the device, and an 8-megapixel shooter will be available up front. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on this device, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Samsung’s custom UI, as always. We still don’t know what exactly will the Galaxy C5 looks like, but you can expect it to sport a physical home key which will double as a fingerprint scanner, two capacitive keys which will flank that physical key.
In addition to the specs shared by GFXBench, the phone’s alleged cases also leaked, courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see four images of Galaxy C5’s cases in various colors. Judging by the cutouts, this handset will resemble Samsung’s previous models. We still don’t know when will the Galaxy C5 and C7 going to be announced, but judging by the amount of benchmark listings we’ve seen, that will happen really soon. These handsets belong in the upper mid-range category we’d say, mainly because of the mid-range Snapdragon SoC which will fuel both of these phones. The Galaxy C5 will sport a 5.5-inch display, which means that the Galaxy C7 might ship with a 5.7-inch panel, but we’ll see, stay tuned.
