Samsung has launched two new mid-range devices in China, the Galaxy C5 and C7. If that branding doesn't sound familiar, it shouldn't — the Galaxy C line is a brand-new series of smartphones from Samsung. The Galaxy C5 is the smaller of the two devices, and features an all-metal chassis and some pretty decent specs:

  • 5.2-inch Super AMOLED full HD display
  • Snapdragon 617 SoC
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 32GB of storage, with 128GB capacity microSD slot
  • 16MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera

The Galaxy C5 and C7 both run Android 6.0, come with a fingerprint scanner, and are available in gold, pink-gold, grey, and silver. The Galaxy C7 is essentially a beefed-up version of the C5 — they both have the same camera setup, RAM, and storage, with the C7 getting a slightly faster processor and bigger screen:

  • 5.7-inch SuperAMOLED full HD display
  • 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU
  • 32GB and 64GB variations
  • 3300mAh battery

Although Samsung hasn't said whether these two smartphones will be available outside of China, it did send the C5 through the FCC to get certified, so the possibility of it coming Stateside in the near future isn't far-fetched. But if you want to pick up one of these phones in China, the Galaxy C5 will cost you around $330 while the C7 starts at $396.
