Samsung’s strategy may seem like throw-everything-at-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks. Apparently, the same case works up to now as the South Korean tech giant plans to add more devices into its portfolio. The Samsung SM-C5000, also known as the Galaxy C5 according to rumours, has been the subject of news and leaks as of late. Now, the latest one so far features the alleged handset live in photos, showcasing its build and form factor, which appears similar to the design language of an HTC flagship smartphone.
Based on the leaked images that have surfaced recently, the Samsung SM-C5000 comes with a metallic body. This also matches the details that have been reported regarding the handset thus far. Furthermore, its design language appears quite similar to the predecessor of HTC 10 flagship smartphone, the One M9. It also features antenna bands at the top and the bottom of its back panel, and its camera sensor is square-shaped, too.
As far as the specifications go, the Samsung SM-C5000 or Galaxy C5 may be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset with an octa-core CPU and an Adreno 405 GPU for its graphics. Rumours also point out that the handset will feature a 5.2-inch display, and its memory capacity will come at 4GB. Samsung may plan on equipping it with a 16 MP camera. Reportedly, it will also run the latest stable version of Android, which is 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of its packaging. Of course, you can expect Samsung’s TouchWiz on top of it. This would likely put the handset in the midrange category based on the specifications alone.
In other news, there also seems to be another C-series entry by Samsung under development based on a listing on GFXBench. There’s not much information about the handset but it may be announced this May and it could be exclusive to the Chinese market.
