Samsung Galaxy C Series
Samsung is releasing a new series into their Galaxy phones: the Samsung Galaxy C. The series will be officially introduced in China at an unveiling event on May 26th. The two phones expected to make an appearance are the Galaxy C7 and the Galaxy C5. Both phones should be part of the company’s efforts toward making more price-friendly and affordable mid-range phones.
The C5 should have a 5.2” display with 1080×1920 resolution. It should have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The fact that it has 4GB of RAM is a little surprising, considering the high number has usually been reserved only for top-of-the-line superphones. However, its appearance in a new mid-range phone means two things for consumers. The first is that Samsung is trying to boost the market for affordable phones. The second is that its presence is indicative of what type of hardware the company will be putting into its future flagship phones.
It should support LTE, have an 8MP front camera, a 16MP main rear camera, with a 2600mAh battery to power everything. When you purchase the phone, you’ll get the option of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. However, neither should present itself as a particular deal-breaker, because both versions will support microSD cards.
The Galaxy C7 should have similar hardware with the exception of a larger, 5.7” display. It’ll also have a 3300mAh battery to help power the bigger screen. Otherwise, the differences pretty much stop there.
Both Samsung Galaxy C devices will come with the latest Android Marshmallow with TouchWiz on top and both phones should be made of metal to boost the premium feel. Both will be priced very inexpensively, but as of right now, it is not sure whether either device will make it to North America.
