This upcoming 5.2-inch handset will apparently have a metallic body and its specs are expected to include a Snapdragon 617 Soc and 4 GB of memory.

The Samsung Galaxy C series has been in the rumor mill for a while, and now a device that appears to be the Galaxy C5 has just been spotted on Geekbench. Although this new family of products is expected to target the mid-range area of the market, insiders who spoke to SamMobile China revealed all the Galaxy C handsets will use thin metallic bodies.

The first two devices in the series that were mentioned by online rumors so far are the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7. According to the Geekbench database entry, the first of the two is powered by the 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC and has 4 GB of memory. It also runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but that should not come as a surprise.

SamMobile also reveals that Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy C series exclusively on the Chinese market. The new handsets are expected to come out next month, but global availability might follow after a while as well. However, that remains to be seen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
