Samsung SM-C5000 spotted online

This handset has been imported to India for testing and is expected to launch in China as an affordable mid-ranger, but Samsung still has to confirm it.

 The Chinese smartphone market has a huge potential and Samsung is one of the many players in this industry that tries to conquer all its areas. Chinese customers are well known for their appetite for large screens, and since they also want their handsets affordable, the new C series of smartphones might be the perfect answer for them. However, everything below should be taken with a grain of salt for now, since there is no official information about this new family yet.

According to a shipping document that has been recently spotted on Zauba, a 5.2-inch handset that goes by the model number SM-C5000 was imported to India for testing. Unfortunately, there are no other details available yet, but SamMobile places the SM-C5000 as a cheaper alternative to the Galaxy A5 (2016). They even draw the line between the two handset families and expect the SM-C3000 and the SM-C7000 to show up as well. We would not be surprised to see the new family launching as Galaxy C3, Galaxy C5, and Galaxy C7, either.

Insiders also told SamMobile that the SM-C5000 "won’t necessarily be exclusive to China," so we might see it showing up under testing with AT&T or other US-based carrier much earlier than expected. We will keep you posted on this topic, so stay tuned.

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.
