Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 mid-rangers have been leaked often in recent times, and with just a couple of days to go for their unveiling in China, alleged press renders of the Galaxy C5 have now shown up online, revealing the upcoming device in all its glory. The device had earlier been listed on the website of China’s electronics certification agency, TENAA, while multiple other leaks over the past few weeks have also revealed a whole lot about the upcoming device, including key hardware specs and software features. The device is expected to be a metal-clad mid-range smartphone from Samsung, and as can be seen from the plethora of images now available online, Champagne Gold will very likely be offered as one of the color options for buyers.
While Samsung is yet to reveal anything officially, the upcoming Galaxy C5 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, which comes with an integrated octa-core CPU and Adreno 405 GPU. The device will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display panel, and come with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage out of the box. There will also be a microSD card slot in the phone for capacity expansion. The upcoming device is also expected to run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, support LTE connectivity, and carry a 2,600 mAh battery. As for imaging options, the Galaxy C5 will reportedly sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash and an 8-megapixel front-facing unit for selfies and video chats.
Apart from the Galaxy C5, Samsung is also said to be working on a Galaxy C7, which is believed to be a comparatively higher-end model with a larger, 5.5-inch display panel and a Snapdragon 625 under the hood. The device is also expected to come with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage as per the listing on the GFXBench database. Samsung is expected to unveil the C-series devices in China this week, but there’s no word if and when the devices will be available for purchase in other markets around the world. As for Samsung, the company will be hoping that its China-specific lineup will be able to bring back some of its lost market share in the world’s largest smartphone market.
