Samsung's Galaxy C5 has reportedly got certified by the telecom regulatory agency of the United States government, hinting that the rumoured device's launch is just around the corner.

The Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) has cleared the terms of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), SamMobile reported, citing the regulatory body's approval document.

The report comes just days after Samsung announced its decision to host an event in China on May 26. The company had not mentioned the significance of the programme in the invitation, but now, it looks like we might witness the launch of the new Galaxy C series phones this week.

It is also being reported that Samsung will showcase the Galaxy C7, the top-end model of the C5 as well. The Galaxy C7 is said to sport a 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display and come with Android Marshmallow OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB inbuilt storage and a 3000mAh battery.

On the other hand, the Galaxy C5 is expected to come with a smaller 5.2-inch full HD screen, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core CPU, 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB inbuilt memory and a 2,600mAh cell.

Both the smartphones will house a 16MP primary camera with LED flash and 8MP snapper on the front. The Galaxy C5 and C7 are expected to be priced $245  and $276, respectively.
