Galaxy C5 Pro and Galaxy C7 Pro release allegedly delayed until January, 2017

If a new post shared on Weibo by a reliable tipster is anything to go by, it would appear that the much-rumored Galaxy C5 Pro (SM-C5010) and Galaxy C7 Pro (SM-C7010), which were both believed to launch in China this month, have been delayed and aren’t expected hit the shelves in the region until January, 2017.

You may recall that both handsets were recently brought into India for testing and evaluation purposes, and have since appeared on popular benchmarking databases. With regards to internals, the Galaxy C5 Pro is rumored to be powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor and will sport at least 3GB of RAM.

Fortunately, we have more detailed purported specifications for the Galaxy C7 Pro. The handset has been spotted on Geekbench sporting a 5.7-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 16MP front- and rear-facing camera and a 3,300mAh non-removable battery.

As always, it’s best to take these alleged specs with a considerable pinch of salt as they’re far from confirmed. Even with their delayed release, we don’t have to wait too much longer to find out what Samsung has up its sleeve for the latest devices in its rapidly-growing range of aluminum-clad Galaxy C smartphones — so be sure to stay tuned.
