Samsung Galaxy C5 is unveiled in China with SD-617 SoC, 4GB RAM and 16MP f/1.9 rear camera
After getting certified in China by TENAA, and in the U.S. by the FCC, there was just one last thing that had to be done for the Samsung Galaxy C5, and that took place overnight during U.S. hours. While those in the states were dreaming, Samsung officially unveiled the device. Previous leaks, which we passed along to you guys of course, had already alerted us as to what to expect from the phone in terms of looks and specs.

The metal-clad device features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The Snapdragon 617 SoC is under the hood bringing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional memory. A fingerprint scanner is on board which means that the model supports mobile payment service Samsung Pay.

A 16MP camera can be found on the back of the unit, sporting an f/1.9 aperture. The front-facing 8MP camera is ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. A 2600mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed. Also pre-loaded is My Knox, which allows users to employ this device at the office thanks to the safe app container that won't mingle with personal apps.

The Galaxy C5 is quite svelte at 6.7mm, and weighs just 143 grams. Color options include gold, pink gold, gray and silver. At this point, the phone is apparently being offered in China only. Still, we can't discount the FCC certification which gives us a reason to believe that we could see the handset U.S. bound at some point before the end of the year.
