Samsung outs the Galaxy C5: 16MP cam, 6.7mm thin
After countless rumors, Samsung has finally made the Galaxy C5 official via their Chinese website. It’s a slim smartphone packed with a Snapdragon chip, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and Android Marshmallow right out of the box.
It’s also worth noting that this device looks a lot like another smartphone, especially in the back part. The probable downside with a slim profile smartphone is the battery — it only packs a mere 2600mAh despite having great hardware.
