Samsung to launch budget Galaxy C series for India, China
If the rumors are confirmed to be true, the Galaxy C will be the fourth mid-low end phone Samsung has introduced thus far, following the Galaxy A, Galaxy E and Galaxy J
Samsung will soon launch its new budget range of smartphones -- Galaxy C series -- in India and China.
According to Korea Bizware, industry sources have revealed that the Korean handset-maker will release the phone first in China followed by India in an effort to secure a meaningful share of the world's most important smartphone markets, with competition becoming increasingly heated.
If the rumors are confirmed to be true, the Galaxy C will be the fourth mid-low end phone Samsung has introduced thus far, following the Galaxy A, Galaxy E and Galaxy J. Samsung's new budget phone is expected to feature a 5.2-inch display, and is expected to sell at around $170 or ₹11,500 approximately.
In China, Samsung has been crowded out by domestic rivals such as Xiaomi, Huawei, Vivo and OPPO, dropping the South Korean company out of the top 5 in terms of smartphone sales. Meanwhile, Samsung's local rival LG Electronics is planning to introduce the G5 SE, a budget version of its flagship G5 smartphone, which is expected to target the Latin American market.
