South Korean smartphone manufacturers will not only focus on the S9 series of flagships this year. The company is gearing up for the premium mid-range smartphones Galaxy C10 and the Galaxy C10 Plus. The smartphones gained some attention last year but quickly faded out. Now, a new Samsung smartphone with model number SM-C9150 has been spotted on the benchmarking website Antutu, which the folks there claim is none other than the Galaxy C10 Plus. Also, the fact that the Galaxy C10 will bear model number SM-C9100 further clears the suspicions.
According to the Antutu database, the Galaxy C10 Plus will feature a display with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). It means the display will not have an 18:9 aspect ratio (most likely 16:9) and will feature bigger bezels. Now, it’s relatively common for premium mid-range smartphones to have an 18:9 aspect ratio; even the Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 sports a display with Full HD (2160 x 1080) and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display size is not revealed in the database but is expected to be around 5.5-6 inches.
As for its internal specifications, the Galaxy C10 Plus will be powered by a 64-bit Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with Adreno 510 GPU. The exact score is not yet revealed. However, the benchmarking tool claims the device performance is lower than other smartphones with the same chipset. It will be coupled with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
The smartphone will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, with a later Oreo update expected. Though no more details about the smartphone are revealed, a previous rumor claimed that a 4,000 mAh battery support would back the Galaxy C10 for fast charging. The C10 Plus will likely feature the same battery and should have enough juice to run a day with moderate use and a little gaming.
The report claimed the company would unveil the smartphone between May and June. As for the pricing, the device is expected to come with a price tag of EUR 630 (Rs 50,000 approx). But this new specs revelation hints that it will cost the same as the Galaxy A8 Plus 2018, which is Rs 32,990 in India.
