The new and upcoming Galaxy C8 is Samsung’s new catch in the smartphone market. This is the company’s yet another phone to sport a dual rear camera, which is slowly becoming a new milestone. The C8 is yet to hit the market but it’s going to wreak havoc once it does. There have been speculations all over the internet regarding the specs and the release date of the device, and we somehow managed to narrow down on some of the details floating here and there. According to our sources, December 28th is the destined date the C8 becomes available for the purchase. Rumors also suggest that there are two more models under development which we aren’t aware of and among them, the C8 has somehow managed to pick up the wind more prominently. Without further ado, let's jump into the specifications of the device.
The will be sporting a Full HD 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1980 pixels and a pixel density of 401ppi. It’s good that the C8 is sporting a Full HD display, but the resolution could have ramped up to 2160 pixels much alike the competition at the proposed price range. The proposed design is somewhat similar to Samsung’s previous models. The C8 will have a rectangular body with rounded edges and will come in golden and metallic black color options. The company has been doing work on their displays, and although the contrast seems a bit too excessive on the entry level Samsung smartphones the mid-level priced displays are much pleasing to the eyes. In our opinion, the company should experiment with their design conventions. Doing something other than the standard round-edged rectangular design might be a good change of pace.
Under the hood, the C8 will be packing a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6757 processor with A-53 cores and clocked at a whopping 2.3GHz. The clock speed is far superior to the competition at the mid-level range. It may consume some extra battery but with the proper optimization, the performance of the will work wonders. For the GPU, the device is fitted with a Mali-T860 MP2, an upgrade from the previous T720 series. The C8 is powered by the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will be available in two variants, one with 3 GB and the other with 4GB of RAM. Internal memory is capped at 32GB but can be expanded with the help of an SD card, all the up to 256 GB.
In terms of configuration and performance, the C8 seems fairly well-rounded and balanced. The processor and the GPU however, will put lots of pressure on top of the battery and the success of the C8 will depend on how successfully it manages to handle this load. Samsung has finally managed to present a fairly powerful device at a fair price range. The C8 comes equipped with a compass, proximity and ambient light sensor. It has the accelerometer but no gyroscope and temperature sensor.
With the C8, Samsung is making their debut in the dual-rear camera scenario. The device will be sporting a 13 megapixel and a 5-megapixel rear shooter and an LED flash for more enhanced and detailed pictures of your special moments. The main and the secondary camera will have an aperture of f/1.7 and f/1.9 respectively. Video recording will be done at 1080p@30fps which is decent enough. The front camera is also being fitted with a whopping 16-megapixel sensor, which is more than enough to satisfy the hearts of all the selfie and groupie addicts out there. For multimedia purposes, it supports the usual audio codecs along with the Vorbis, FLAC and AMR-MB/WB formats as well. In terms of videos, it supports the FLV, AVI, WEBM and the AVI, MKV formats as well, which are unplayable in most smartphones.
Being the powerhouse that the C8, it is doubtful whether a meagre 2560 mAh battery will be able to support it to its full potential. Samsung has never been too great at their battery management and for the C8 they should have thought of something more beefy.
The C8 also has a hybrid sim slot and has a dual sim support for 4G VOLTE as well.
