The smartphone is likely to come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Though there s no official confirmation about the same, we can speculate the smartphone to be upgradable to Android N, which will be released later this year. Right now there s not a lot of information available about the other Galaxy C smartphone, called the Galaxy C7.


It is being speculated that the Galaxy C series will be placed between the mid-range Galaxy A series and the Galaxy J series aimed at the budget segment. Considering it has metal body, Samsung is likely to extensively focus on the design part while pitting against the rest in the crowded Android segment.

Looking at the leaked specifications, the Samsung Galaxy C5 will not only be a design-focused smartphone but also a powerhouse. It will join a small list of smartphones with 4GB of RAM in the sub-Rs 25,000 price category. Popular smartphones for this segment are the Asus Zenfone 2 and OnePlus 2.

Right now there is no official word on the pricing and availability of the new Samsung smartphones. We expect more leaks to pour in as we inch closer to an official launch.
