Samsung Galaxy C5 Pro goes live on Samsung China's website

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.

This phone has a 4000 mah battery, yet has an average battery life, one of the slowest and most inconsistent fingerprint scanner on a modern day smartphone, and a 16MP camera with a wide aperture lens, yet it delivers awful pictures especially in low light conditions. Highly overrated phone, and Samsung should be ashamed for releasing a phone with such weaknesses.

You have opinion for every Samsung device. You must be a fanatic Samsung buyer. C5 is a mid range device not a flagship.

I thought the article was about the C9 Pro, but my point is still valid, as this is the C5 Pro, not the regular C5. When people pay more for the Pro versions, they are expecting to get a much better experience. The C9 Pro for example is more expensive than the OnePlus 3T, yet the 3T destroys it in almost every category.
