New Samsung Galaxy C5 photos show up, dimensions and features confirmed
Samsung Galaxy C - this is the name of a brand new series of Android smartphones that Samsung is seemingly planning to announce on May 26. The first two handsets of the series will be the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7, both offering metal bodies and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. We've already seen the Galaxy C5 in several leaked photos, and now we have the chance to take yet another look at it, thanks to the fact that the phone was approved by China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (aka TENAA). TENAA is revealing a pretty complete list of specs, thus re-confirming what we previously heard regarding the Galaxy C5.

Measuring 145.9 x 72 x 6.7 mm and weighing 153 grams, the Samsung Galaxy C5 sports a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and is an upper-mid-range device. Notable among its features is the amount of RAM: 4 GB - until now, this was seen on top-of-the-line smartphones only.

The Galaxy C5 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, which means it won't perform as well as handsets using more potent CPUs (like the Snapdragon 820). Other features include LTE, an 8 MP front-facing camera, a 16 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, and a 2600 mAh battery. There will be two Galaxy C5 variants, one offering 32 GB of storage space, and another one with 64 GB, both supporting microSD cards.

At the moment, we don't know if the Galaxy C5 (and Galaxy C7) will be widely available around the world. But we'll let you know more about the two smartphones as soon as Samsung officially announces them.
