Samsung unveils the Galaxy C5 in China


Last updated: May 26th, 2016 at 11:47 UTC+02:00

We first told you about Samsung’s new Galaxy C series smartphones a couple of months ago and today the company has officially unveiled the Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) in China. It’s not like this is the first time we’re seeing this device, we leaked official renders of the Galaxy C5 in all of its color options just yesterday. As expected, the handset has only been launched in China and it’s unclear if Samsung is going to bring it to other markets as well.


Fashioned out of metal, the Galaxy C5 features a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor under the hood coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card up to 128GB. It also has a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/1.9 aperture on both. The Galaxy C5 has 4G LTE support and a hybrid dual-SIM slot, power is provided by a 2,600mAh battery. It comes in at 145.9 x 72 x 6.7mm and weighs 143g. The Galaxy C5 has a fingerprint sensor as well so it supports Samsung Pay. Samsung has launched the Galaxy C5 in China today, pricing and availability details have not yet been confirmed, but it has been reported previously that the Galaxy C5 may not be as cheap as initially believed. It will be available in gold, pink gold, gray and silver colors.
