Last month, a smartphone model with version number SM-C5000 was spotted on Zauba listing and it was also noticed on Geekbench recently. Other than the SM-C5000, Samsung is currently working upon a C7000 model, although not much is known about it.
On its initial launch, the device will be exclusive to the regions of China, but it will eventually reach out to other countries. Not much is revealed about the price, but rumors suggest the device will come with a tentative price tag of Rs. 13,500 (US$204). Observing the price, it is a budget or mid-range smartphone.
As for the SM-C5000 model, it featured an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor along with Adreno 405 GPU. Other features expected on the device include 4GB of RAM and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, reports First Post.
Samsung created a phenomenal design by combining a glass and metal design for the Galaxy A series. The tech giant has plans to recreate similar magic with its Galaxy C lineup. We can be confirmed about the design only after the device releases in May.
SamMobile, however, points it out that the South Korean tech company aims at focusing on a premium design this year. It is expected that the Galaxy C series would do justice for being a budget phone with adequate specifications and looks.
While China is the first market that the company targets, India is expected to be the next launching destination. A 5.2-inch smartphone will be released in India following the release of the device is China. Following the Galaxy A, J and E series, Galaxy C will be fourth low-budget smartphone of the company, reports Times of India.
