Samsung has taken the lid off its new Galaxy C series lineup – the Samsung Galaxy C5 and C7. As was previously speculated, the all metal mid-range devices have only been launched in China; it is unclear whether Samsung will bring it to other markets.

Other specifications include a 16-megapixel rear snapper, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,600 mAh battery and a home button embedded fingerprint sensor which supports Samsung Pay.
Like the Galaxy C5, the Galaxy C7 is metal-clad and they share the same camera setup, RAM and fingerprint sensor placement. The bigger C7 is essentially a beefed up version of the the C5, coming in with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED full HD display and a 2.0 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU. It will also come with 32GB or 64GB variations on top of having a bigger battery size of 3,300 mAh.
Both of the devices run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and will be available in four colours: gold, pink-gold, grey, and silver. As for the price, the Galaxy C5 carries a tag of $330 (about RM1340), while the C7 starts at $396 (about RM1610).
