New Samsung Galaxy C5 photos show up, features and dimensions 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.

625 is built on 14 nm process and has the latest gen GPU which is more powerful and efficient. SD 625 is a big upgrade over SD 617. But Samsung seems to be sticking with low grade processors in its upper mid range phone including the A series.

Yeah, the processors given is way too weak for the price range. Should've been 650 or 808. Or at least make their own, better-performing Exynos version.

SD 625 would be much better than 617.

Why? SD 650 would be much better. SD 625 would be better. But not much.

Yeah. But I would rather get a 625 than 617. 650 would be great but it will obviously rack up the price of the phone as well.

I think everyone would rather a 650 & 3GB than a 617 & 4GB

if this phone is really priced T 258$ like the previous leak mentioned, then the specs are very compelling. the moto g4 plus is in that price bracket and with the G4 you get plastic build, non-AMOLED screen. IF this phone is really for 258$ than this phone will be a great midrange offering!

No, it'll be priced above J & E series but below A & S series. In India, Galaxy J7 (2016) is Rs. 15990/- and Moto G4 plus is Rs. 14999/- so considering this its price gonna be priced higher.

I think majority of the people really wont care, as we techy people are a minority.
