The new premium mid-range smartphone from Samsung bears a 16:9 display and good internal specs.
South Korean smartphone manufacturer is not only going to be focusing 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 in benchmarking website Antutu which the folks there claim it’s 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 be featuring a display with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). Now it means that the display will not have an 18:9 aspect ratio (most likely 16:9) and will be featuring bigger bezels. Now it’s rather 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 18:9 aspect ratio. The display size is not revealed in the database but is expected to be around 5.5-6 inch.
As for it 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 rumour claimed that the GalaxyC10 would be backed by a 4,000 mAh battery support for fast charging. The C10 plus will also likely to feature the same battery and should have enough juice to run a day with moderate use and a little gaming.
The same report claimed that the company would unveil the smartphone between May and June this year. 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 around the price of the Galaxy A8 Plus 2018 which is Rs 32,990 in India.
