Samsung has plenty of reason to celebrate -- so far, all signs indicate that its newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, are doing fine, sales wise. But it appears that the South Korean tech giant is now busy preparing to launch a new smartphone offering, this time around targeting mobile users looking to purchase quality midrange handsets. Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy C5 is something that should interest those mobile users. Reportedly to be released in the coming months, the Galaxy C5 smartphones comes with a 5.2 inch display screen, a full metal frame, and a powerful Snapdragon 617 chip.
Samsung has only incorporated metal and glass designs to a limited number of its devices, most notably its Galaxy S lineup of smartphones. However, the South Korean phone maker is now beginning to introduce metal and glass materials to other products in its repertoire, as evidenced by its new Galaxy C series of handsets. Indeed, the Galaxy C5 and the Galaxy C7 are primed to become the go-to options for smartphones belonging to the lower to midrange mobile market.
According to specifications published by SamMobile China, the Galaxy C5 (listed as SM-C5000) may feature a full metal frame housing a 5.2 inch display screen. With regards to hardware specifications, the handset is said to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory, and powered by Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow mobile operating system.
Around the same time as the release of the Galaxy C5, a larger sibling, the Galaxy C7, is also set to hit the smartphone market. The Galaxy C7 may come equipped with a 5.5 inch display screen with a resolution of 720p, with other features that could include a Snapdragon 617 chip, an Adreno 405 graphics processing unit (GPU), 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), up to 32 gigabytes of onboard memory, a 3,250 mAh battery, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software.
For those not familiar with the Snapdragon 617 processor, this chip is capable of download and upload speeds of 300 mbps and 100 mbps, plus it comes with support for video playback at 60 fps and up to 21 megapixel resolution in the primary camera with a Dual Image Sensor (ISP). For good measure, the processor also features Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0, a technology that lets a device charge to 100 percent in under 60 minutes. Although it is quite possible that Samsung may choose to go for its home grown Exynos 7870 eight core chip set for the Galaxy C5 and the Galaxy C7.
