For a while now, we've been hearing about Samsung's newest additions to the C series, the C5, C7, and C9. What makes them interesting is that, despite previous devices in the series being released in China only, the newest ones can also be found outside the People's Republic. Now, the last remaining of the three, the Galaxy C5, has officially gone live for pre-order on Samsung's Chinese website.
The C5 Pro may be a mid-range device, but still packs quite a punch. It comes equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 626 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Both the front and the rear camera feature a 16 MP sensor, and the device also has a fingerprint scanner embedded into the physical home button. The device also supports Samsung Pay, which lets users pay using their phone even on older, magnetic stripe-based card readers.
While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the C5 Pro is more than likely to get a release outside of China, as its international version recently got its Wi-Fi certification. Right now, the C5 Pro can be pre-ordered in Samsung China's online shop, where it costs 2,499 yuan ($360), and comes in three colors: pink, blue, and gold.
