Ladies and gentlemen, the successor to the much famous Samsung Galaxy C9 are finally here. The expected launch date is 30th June, but that isn't keeping Samsung from leaking the specifications into the market. The Galaxy C10 in an upgrade to the previously existing C9 in every way possible. Although the expected price is estimated to around 30k we are not sure, and prices are subject to change upon the final release of the product. The C9 was launched in the mid-level range of smartphones. Compared to that the C10 seems to be moving up quite a notch. Although the title of flagship remains with the Galaxy S8 and its successors, the C10 is nothing to joke around. It also boasts some decent specs. Let’s take a look at them.
The C10 will most probably be packaged in a full metal unibody design. The fingerprint scanner is moved from the rear to the front of the phone to where the home button is located. The screen is a quite spacious 6.0-inch Super AMOLED FullHD display, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 and sporting a pixel density of 490. The screen is made from corning gorilla glass, and we are assuming it to be a CGG 5 since nothing was said in the rumors.
Samsung is known for their AMOLED displays, which offers superb viewing angles which are a boon when it comes to gaming and watching movies. According to some of the leaked images, the bezels body is to screen ratio is also quite, but Samsung could have made an effort to give some more coverage to the screen, especially at the top and the bottom of the screens.
The C10 will be sporting a quad-core Snapdragon 660 64 bit chipset clocked at an average speed of 2.0 GHz( 2.2 GHz quad core + 1.8 GHz quad core). The device will be powered by a whopping 6GB of RAM with and internal storage of 64GB. No information has been released about the graphics processor.
Now there are some ups and downs to this configuration. The 6GB of RAM will allow you to breeze through your daily tasks without any hiccups. However, the Snapdragon 660 lineup is for mid-range smartphones and though Samsung intends to save the Snapdragon 835 for its flagship, paying almost 30k(not sure) for a 660 is not at all justifiable. Also, the 64 Gb of space may be enough, but the competition at that stage is offering a minimum of 128 GB, which leaves Samsung in the dust by a huge league. Though the 64-bit architecture may display some impressive scores on the benchmarks table, it is not enough to woo the buyers who seek value in the purchases.
Samsung Galaxy C10 comes with two rear 13MP shooters, a new technology that is on the rise. As we all know, two cameras give a better in depth effect to the photos. Samsung is also sporting a new technology called the Assis Beam Focus which has something to do with the autofocus; we have no information as of now regarding that. the front camera is also a whopping 16MP shooter. Video recording is done at 1080p @30 fps which are a bit low as were expecting somewhere around 60 fps. Manual ISO and exposure controls are available on the device and also HDR.
The C10, however, has no optical zoom which is a downer when considered the price. But, Samsung has always delivered a decent package when it came to the camera quality. It may not be good, but it gets the job done with ease and style.
The Galaxy C10 is powered by a 3000mAh Li-Po battery which is a big pinch in the specs. Highest mark in the mid-range segment is 6000 mAh and what Samsung OS offering is somewhat unacceptable. It may have an AMOLED display which saves battery on a whole other level, but 3000mAh is too little.
The C10 is a dual sim phone that supports 4G LTE, and we are assuming it supports VoLTE since it is ludicrous for a device at that range not to do so.
