Recent benchmark test by Geekbench 3 revealed a new ‘Samsung Galaxy C’ series which might be introduced by Samsung in the near future.
The listing featured a smartphone with the model number SM-C5000 which is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 chipset. For the ones who haven’t heard of this chipset, SD617 consists of an octa-core CPU coupled with the Adreno 405 GPU. In addition to that, the benchmark test further reveals 4 GB of RAM and Android v6.0.1. Moreover, the test by Geekbench 3 showed a single-core score of 609 while the multi-core figure was 3147.
Needless to say, after the benchmark test, the smartphone might soon visit TENAA where further information regarding the camera and battery specifications will be outed.
Note that a smartphone with identical model number was spotted on Zauba which is an Indian customs database. Zauba unveiled a smartphone with a model number SM-C5000 which features a 5.2 inch display. However other rumors suggest that another smartphone of the C series with a model number SM-7000 is also under development though no specifics have yet surfaced. As you can see in the picture below, the smartphone has been mentioned with a per unit price of INR 13,625 ($205). 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. The aforementioned price of the upcoming C-series lies just above the J5 which was released last year. Therefore is 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. Moreover, reports suggest that the C-series will mainly target customers residing in China, though we might also soon witness a launch in India.
