Samsung that it would trim its smartphone portfolio, focusing on clear-cut product lines across varying price segments. Thus far, we've had the entry-level Galaxy J series (and to a lesser extent the Galaxy On phones) and the Galaxy E series, the mid-range Galaxy A series, and the flagship Galaxy S and Note lines. It looks like Samsung is now looking to roll out another lineup of phones in the Galaxy C series, which will also fall into the mid-tier category. The first phone in the series, the Galaxy C5, passed through TENAA earlier today, giving us a look at the possible hardware on offer and the design.
Featuring a metal chassis, the Galaxy C5 is rumored with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage, microSD slot, 16MP camera, 8MP front camera, and a 2600mAh battery along with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard. Most of the specs look better than what's on offer with the Galaxy A7 2016, but Samsung's choice of SoC may turn out to be the low point in what looks like a great phone.
Either way, we'll know more about the phone on May 26, which is when it'll be making its official debut in China.
