Samsung’s all new series has been subject to rumors ever since Zauba, an Indian customs database, surfaced with an import listing of some mystery handsets. Apparently this new series will be named the ‘C-series’. The listing unveiled a smartphone with a model number SM-C5000 which featured a 5.2 inch display. However now, another Samsung C series smartphone has been spotted on AnTuTu Benchmark with a model number SM-C7000.
Prior to this, we didn’t have any solid information on the internal hardware of the SM-C7000. AnTuTu revealed some of the major specification of the handset, apparently C7000 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC. It’ll feature a full HD display in addition to 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. Moving on to the camera department, the smartphone will come standard with a 16 megapixel rear shooter and an 8 megapixel selfie camera. Last but not the least, Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 will come preinstalled with the device.
So far Samsung has 5 alphabet named series – S, A, J, E, Z (which are arranged in descending order with respect to price). Apart from these, Samsung also has a Note series and an On series available in its lineup. Keeping in mind the fact that Zauba claimed that the SM-C5000 will carry a per unit price of INR 13,625 ($205), the upcoming C-series lies just above the J5 which was released last year. Therefore this can be speculated that the series in question will carry smartphones which might be priced above J series but still remain cheaper than the A series. However, it should be kept in mind that the prices might be different when the smartphone is officially launched. Reportedly the C-series will mainly target customers residing in China, though we might also soon witness a launch in India.
