Couple of days ago, we told you about the certification received by Samsung Galaxy C5 from TENAA (the Chinese version of FCC). As of now, FCC has themselves given a go ahead to the smartphone which is expected to be launched on May 26th. Note that another handset named Galaxy C7, will probably be launched alongside Galaxy C5 in the event scheduled in China. However, the latter hasn’t yet received any certification from TENAA or FCC.
The Samsung Galaxy C5 will come standard with 5.2 inch 1080 x 1920 full HD display while it’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 617 chipset which contains an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, and the Adreno 405 GPU. In addition to that, Listings confirms that the handset will host 4GB of RAM while two different memory options, 32GB and 64GB, will be offered. Moving on to some other confirmed features of the Galaxy C5, we have a 16 megapixel camera at the rear side while the selfies and video chats will be handled by an 8 megapixel front shooter. A 2,600 mAh battery finalizes the weight of the smartphone at 153 grams while it measures specifically 145.9 × 72 × 6.7mm. It is also somewhat confirmed that the smartphone will include a Gold color variant, while Android Marshmallow will come running on all memory/colour variants. Other features include a 128GB capacity microSD slot, 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth, USB and GPS.
On the other hand, the aforementioned Galaxy C7 will sport a 5.7-inch 1080p screen and based on the recent and earlier leaks, both handsets will feature an all-metal body, which apparently resembles quite a bit with the HTC One series.
As far as the pricing and availability are concerned, they will definitely be announced this Thursday, so stay tuned for the latest information. However recent rumors out of China claim that the C-series will carry a price tag around $335 for 32GB C5 and $400 for 32GB C7 instead of the previously rumored $200-300 range.
