Samsung Galaxy C5 is a New Mid-Ranger with 4GB RAM, 16MP Camera

Apart from the more high-end C7, Samsung also announced a new mid-range phone that comes with a metallic design called the Galaxy C5.

The phone comes with a smaller 5.2” display with 1080p resolution and Super AMOLED panel. It also runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with TouchWiz.

The phone has support for LTE, while also supporting dual-SIM connectivity. The second slot can also be used to expand memory by up to 128 GB. Apart from it, you have Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth.

Under the hood, you can find a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor with an impressive 4 GB RAM and either 32 or 64 GB storage. The back boasts a 16 MP sensor with Flash, along with an 8 MP sensor up front. The front also has a fingerprint scanner, which shows Samsung has covered all the basics.

Battery capacity is 2600 mAh, sadly with no fast-charging. Pricing is set at $335 (Approx. Rs. 35,000) for the 32 GB model, or $370 (Rs. 38,000) for the 64 GB model.

    2600mAh is the biggest drawback for this phone:-O

    • Shaaf

      It depends on usage. For those who charge thier phones once a day then why carry a brick in your pocket uncesserily? 2600mah is no slouch if properly governed by software. I’d rather take smaller battery if it makes phone lighter and smaller to my liking.

    mid ranger which’ll cost kidneys in Pakistan !

  • Khotaroid

    No matter how big the ram, it will still lag and shutter because android is resource hungry OS.

    • It is not android that is resource hungry, it is What Samsung do with Android… Touchwiz…
      Have you seen Nexus Devices with half of RAM from this and have still more free RAM than these 4gb devices..

    • Zaim

      Marshmallow is not very resource hungry.

    Just perfect if they launch them with same prices here in Pakistan. any info about when can we expect C5 in Pakistan? Admin???

  • Mohammad Vajih Rahman Saqib

    This model DOES have fast charging. At least my mobile came with such a charger.

  • Farrukh

    One of the best phones i hqve used in terms of performance from samsung. Battery is small but keep in mind it has fast charge which is negated in the article above. Fast charge helps charge your phone 50% in 15 to 20 mins. I have habit of using samsung phones despite they get slow but using this phone fpr sometimw now haven’t faced any issue that i can mention.
