Samsung C series to sport metal design, more Galaxy C5 specs leak

We have known for a few weeks about Samsung’s new Galaxy C series of smartphones. The Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 should be leading the charge, and at least the former is currently under development with a 5.2-inch display. Today, more specs of the C5 have been revealed thanks to the Geekbench benchmark website. Also, SamMobile China has learned from its sources that the C series devices will feature thin metallic bodies, not unlike the Galaxy A8.

With the Galaxy A series having moved on to the glass and metal design that debuted on the Galaxy S6, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Galaxy C lineup taking up the mission the Galaxy A series was initially tasked with. The specs should be similar to the Galaxy A (2016) lineup – the Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) is listed with 4GB of RAM and the octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC (clocked at 1.5GHz). The operating system is Android 6.0.1, which is what we expect on every new device that Samsung launches in the future.

A premium design seems to be a heavy focus for the Korean giant this year, as even the new Galaxy J (2016) devices have a bit of metal in their construction. The Galaxy C series is expected to launch in May as an exclusive for the Chinese market. Hopefully, the exclusivity will not be permanent, as with the right pricing the Galaxy C lineup could fit in nicely between Samsung’s budget offerings and the high-end Galaxy A handsets.

No way…imagine…samsung dumping another garbage series of mediocre “galaxy” devices out again this year…they’ve watered down their brand so badly it’s a joke…galaxy a, c, j…but remember you read it here on sammobile…samsung are the innovators and lg is just lost…you know trying out that whole modular thing…shew glad they cleared that up for a second I was thinking advancement and innovation were good things in technology…not removing features and pouring out mediocre crap clones of their own devices over and over lol smh

Galaxy J7 (2016) J710FN is listed on russian online retail website http://www.quke.ru and its full specification revealed and shocking news is that it has only HD 720p display as opposed to Full HD display on chinese variant J7108. Not expected this from samsung.

It seems slowly Samsung will back to old days when they have so big variety model, and more slower to deliver update. With current model, It have been very slow to deliver update especially security update even for what they said as flagship model.
