The Samsung Galaxy C5 just burst on the scene and online stores in China are already accepting pre-orders (the actual sales are scheduled to start on June 6).

You get a better camera than the A5 (2016), a 16MP f/1.9 shooter on the back and an 8MP f/1.9 camera on the front. The chipset is fairly similar – Snapdragon 617 (eight Cortex-A53, Adreno 405). A sealed 2,600mAh battery provides the juice.

The Galaxy C5 is a dual-SIM phone, a hybrid slot so you can fit a microSD instead. Additional connectivity includes 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC (with Samsung Pay support).

If you’re in China, you can pre-order the 32GB Galaxy C5 for CNY 2,200 ($335/300) and the 64GB one for CNY 2,400 ($370/330). Outside of China, well, stay tuned. No word on the bigger Galaxy C7 either.
