Samsung Galaxy C5 and C7 Got Launched Today
The new C-line of smartphone series from Samsung finally got announced and launched in China – the Samsung Galaxy C5 and the Samsung Galaxy C7. Are these mid-range smartphones any good?
The Galaxy C5 and C7 both run Android 6.0, both have a fingerprint scanner, and are available in the same color choices: gold, pink-gold, grey, and silver.
The Galaxy C7 is in the simplest terms, the big brother to the C5. Both smartphone sports the same camera setup, RAM, and storage. The only difference is the C7’s got a slightly faster processor and bigger screen.
- 5.7-inch SuperAMOLED full HD display
- 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU
- 32GB and 64GB variations
- 3300mAh battery
The Galaxy C5 is the smaller of the two devices, and features an all-metal chassis and some pretty decent specs:
- 5.2-inch Super AMOLED full HD display
- Snapdragon 617 SoC
- 4GB of RAM
- 32GB of storage, with 128GB capacity microSD slot
- 16MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera
Samsung clarified that for both of these devices to be made available outside of China, it would have to be certified by the FCC. This is a high possibility. However, if you want to pick one up right now, the Galaxy C5 will set you back $330 and the Galaxy C7, $396.
