It does support microSD cards up to 256 GB. It has a 16MP camera at the back and a same 16MP camera on the front too. There is a 2,600 mAh battery placed under the hood.

Galaxy C5 Pro ran on Android Nougat out of the box. It was not clear whether Samsung will update this phone to Android Oreo or not. While Google has already released the Android Pie, Samsung is still struggling with bringing its old phones to Android Oreo. Galaxy C5 Pro’s Android Nougat base firmware also means it is not a Treble supported the phone. Samsung hasn’t added Project Treble in this Android Oreo either.
