Samsung C5 PRO Specs Details Performance
The C5 PRO will be available in 3 color options – Arctic Blue, Maple Leaf Gold and Rose Gold
The smartphone is powered by a new SOC from Qualcomm – Snapdragon 626 (Octa Core 64 Bit Processor) clocked at 2.2 Ghz. Notably, the Snapdragon 626 is also manufactured using the 14 Nm process which makes it powerful as well as quiet energy efficient.
The Processor comes with Qualcomm® TruSignal™ antenna boost technology to offer better reception and data connectivity. The C5 Pro has got 4 GB of RAM which is sufficient for multi-tasking and Gaming. The SD 626 comes with Adreno 506 GPU to ensure flawless gaming experience.
The C5 Pro comes with 5.2 Inch Super AMOLED Display and offers beautiful viewing experience. The Display is Full HD resolution (1920*720) pixels and also comes with 2.5D curve glass.
The Samsung C5 Pro comes with a 16 Mega Pixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture lens, additionally there is a 16 Mega Pixel selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture to click great shots. The C5 PRO has got 64 GB of internal storage which can be further expanded to 256 GB using the Micro SD card.
The smartphone comes with 7 mm of thickness and has a 145 grams weight. It is sleek but there are compromises with sleek phones – the battery capacity on the C5 pro is just 2600 mAH which is not much considering most phones are coming with above 3000 mAH battery capacity.
Though the processor is quiet energy efficient we would have loved some more battery capacity, than having more thinness for more practical use.
The smartphone runs on the dated Android Marshmallow 6.0 and comes with the touch wiz UI. It is a bit of low point that even after months of Nougat release companies are still launching premium devices with an old OS.
On the positive side though it comes with the latest USB Type C port and also has NFC support. The mobile comes with Samsung Pay support and also has 4G LTE and VOLTE connectivity options. Both the Samsung C5 and C7 Pro are available in China only , no information is available for India or global launch at this point.
Samsung already have the Samsung C9 Pro which comes with a decent selfie camera and also has a very large display.
