The Galaxy C5 Pro has been spotted on Zauba and this means Samsung could be rolling out the new smartphone soon. Zauba is an Indian import/export tracking portal. The product that appeared on Zauba had the model number SM-C5010. It has reportedly been sent to India for testing purposes and research and development.

The Zauba listing has revealed the Samsung Galaxy C5 Pro price as INR 20,483. This roughly converts to AU$410 though Zauba price listings are not always correct. Earlier in September, reports surfaced on the Internet stating Samsung would soon be rolling out the Galaxy C5 Pro and Galaxy C7 Pro models.

It is highly anticipated that the pair will be announced in December. The two units that have been shipped for R&D Purpose and Evaluation are not for retail sale. A Weibo leak, only a few days ago, pointed towards a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor in the Galaxy C5 Pro model. The chipset includes an Adreno 506 GPU and octa-core CPU.

It is believed that this processor will allow 10 percent faster performance than its predecessor, writes PhoneArena. The Samsung Galaxy C5 features a 5.2-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display. The handset comes in two storage variants, 32GB and 64GB, and a 4GB RAM, reports BGR India.

Samsung Galaxy C5 sports a 16MP primary camera with dual-tone LED flash and an 8MP front camera. It consists of a 2,600 mAh battery and Quick Charge 3.0.

As Galaxy C5 Pro will be an upgrade over the Galaxy C5, users can expect strong hardware specs, camera and storage. It is rumoured that the handset will be made available in three colours, Dark Gray, Pink Gold and Gold.

The Samsung Galaxy C5 Pro may run on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and have a fingerprint scanner and dual-sim and 4G LTE connectivity.
