SEOUL, May 27 (Korea Bizwire) – Samsung Electronics Co. showcased the Galaxy C5 and C7 smartphones in China on Thursday, in line with its efforts to speed up sales of budget handsets around the globe.
The 5.2-inch Galaxy C5 and 5.7-inch Galaxy C7 boasts super active mode organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays with metal bodies. They come with 2,600 mAh and 3,300 mAh batteries, respectively.
The two smartphones also come with Samsung’s flagship mobile payment service, Samsung Pay.
While the service was originally available for only high-end models, Samsung has been making efforts to apply the service in a larger scope of devices.
The mobile platform supports magnetic secure transmission technology that works on traditional credit card machines. Like rivals Apple Pay and Android Pay, it also supports near field communication technology that requires a separate transaction device.
The devices will be available for preorder starting June 6, with a price tag of around 400,000 won (US$338). Samsung currently has no plan to sell the products in South Korea.
