Samsung has already managed to release a solid number of devices this year, and for a variety of price points at that. Still, just a few weeks ago a brand new letter in the company’s product Parthenon was leaked – along with some hands on pictures. The Galaxy C, with a premium looking front panel and metal body, is almost like a Galaxy S7-lite.
Samsung is now sending out invites to an event in China that will officially take the wraps off the fledgling series. The date is set for May 26th, at which time presumably definitive pricing and availability details will be disclosed.
As per a leak from April, the Galaxy C5, the smaller of the two C sizes, will have a 5.2-inch FHD (1920 X 1280) display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 Octa Core SoC, 4GB of RAM, a 2,800mAh battery, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The Galaxy C7 is supposed to have the same specs, but with a larger 5.7-inch display and a 3,300mAh battery.
Also based on previous leaks the Galaxy C5 is estimated to retail for 1,599 CNY (roughly $245) and the Galaxy C7 for 1,799 CNY (roughly $276).
Samsung’s pricing and positioning of these handsets – as well as the market(s) they are intended for – will need to be clarified, less the OEM risk spec confusion between the Galaxy A and Galaxy J series. At this time it is still unknown as to if the Galaxy C series will be released outside of Asia/China.
What are your thoughts on these products? Do the Galaxy Cs have you tickled pink, or are there some doubts in your mind as to the way Samsung thinks?
