Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy C8 in China. As expected, the handset is near-identical to the recently-launched Galaxy J7+, with a dual-camera setup (13MP+5MP) sitting in pride of place on the rear.
Two variants of the Galaxy C8 are scheduled to hit the shelves in the region: one with 32GB of storage, and the other with 64GB. Both sport a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a MediaTek Helio P20 processor and a 3,000mAh battery.
The only difference between the two models is that the former features 3GB of RAM, while the latter wields 4GB—well that, and the fact the slightly more powerful unit is set to carry a marginally higher price tag.
Just like the Galaxy J7+, which comes with 4GB of RAM as standard on the base 32GB variant, the Galaxy C8 is home to a slew of connectivity options, including 4G LTE, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C and, of course, a dual-SIM slot.
It also ships running Android 7.1.1 Nougat skinned with the latest build of Samsung’s Experience—formerly known as TouchWiz—user interface, and is equipped with a number of exciting software features, like Always On Display and Bixby.
The best way to look as the Galaxy C8 is as a rebranded variant of the Galaxy J7+, because that’s exactly what it is. There’s still no word on pricing, but we expect it to start at around ¥2,000 ($305).
