Samsung has finally unveiled its Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 in China after weeks of speculations. These mid-range devices are first from the company's newly floated C series, joining the A and J series families.
The Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7 are already up for pre-orders in China, and are scheduled to be up for sale on June 17. It was reported that the devices will be exclusive for Chinese market, but it appears like it will be released in other markets.
The South Korean electronics giant hasn't confirmed whether the devices will be released in India, but it appears like they will be released in markets outside China. The Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) has been spotted on Zauba, a website that tracks imports and exports in India for testing, which can be taken as a hint that it could be released in other countries.
