The new device sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Like Samsung’s other mid-range smartphones, the C5 also packs a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button.

Oddly enough the C5 has a better camera than the previously locally released A5, sporting a 16-megapixel f/1.9 shooter paired with a 8-megapixel front facing camera with an f/1.9 lens. Keeping the lights on is a 2600mAh battery, along with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

In China Samsung is pricing the C5 at RMB 2200 or Php 15.6K for the 32GB version, and RMB 2400 or Php 17K for the 64GB version. No word on availability outside of China as of yet.
