It's not even half of 2016 yet Samsung has already been able to release a good number of devices at different prices. Despite this, there is a mysterious smartphone that the South Korean company could still be working on. A few weeks ago, a letter leaked under the company's Parthenon product along with a few hands on photos. The mysterious product has been revealed to be the Samsung Galaxy C, a smartphone almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 with a premium front panel and metal body. And ever since then, the public has been keeping an eye out for other information pertaining this smartphone.

Meanwhile its older brother, the Galaxy C7, is reported to run on the same processor and RAM but will sport a larger 5.7-inch display and a 3,300 mAh battery. Both devices will be running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS. The Galaxy C5 is said to retail around $245 while the Galaxy C7 will cost around $276.
