Leaked promo material confirms Galaxy C8 dual camera and fingerprint sensor

We recently spotted the support page for the SM-C7100 on Samsung China’s website. This handset will be called the Galaxy C8 when it’s eventually launched in the near future. It appears that this is going to be Samsung’s first premium mid-range handset with a dual camera. The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung’s first handset ever to feature a dual camera.

We’ve got our hands on leaked promo material which confirms that the Galaxy C8 is going to have a dual camera. The device is also going to have a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. The dual camera is reportedly going to have a combination of 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors laid out vertically.

Previous reports suggest that this handset will have a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display. It will be powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core processor with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. It may also feature a 2,850mAh battery and Android 7.1.1.

A basic very of Bixby might be present on this handset as well. Bixby Home, the card-based contextual version of Samsung’s assistant, is already offered on the Galaxy Note 7 FE. It will also be present on a new mid-range tablet from Samsung that will be launched soon.

Samsung is yet to confirm when the Galaxy C8 will be launched and if it’s going to be released in markets outside China.
