Samsung Galaxy C10 Plus appears with Snapdragon 660, 6GB RAM


Samsung’s upcoming premium mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy C10 and the Galaxy C10 Plus, are back in the news. The phones first appeared early last year, but since then everyone had forgotten about the C-series phone. Now, a smartphone labelled Samsung SM-C9150 has been spotted in AnTuTu’ database. Folks from the benchmarking tool claim that this is no other than the Galaxy C10+, and considering that the Galaxy C10 will bear the model number SM-C9100.

Going ahead with the specifications of the Galaxy C10+ that were revealed by AnTuTu, the phone will feature a screen with Full HD resolution (1080×1920 pixels). This means that Samsung has settled for a screen with 16:9 aspect ratio, and the phone will not feature a less-bezel screen. However, most good phones in the same segment now feature screes with 18:9 aspect ratio. Even Samsung’s own Galaxy A8+ (2018) features a screen with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2160 pixels) and minimal bezels. The display size of the C10+ hasn’t been revealed yet, but we expect it to feature a 5.5-inch or 6-inch screen.

Moving on to the internal hardware department, the Galaxy C10+ will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC with 64-bit octa-core CPU and Adreno 510 GPU. While AnTuTu claims that the phone’s performance is lower than other devices that use the same chipset, the company isn’t revealing the phone’s exact score. The Galaxy C10+ will come packed with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage, and it will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Unfotunately, that’s all we know about the phone so far. Details regarding the price and release date of the phone will soon be revealed in China. A report claims that the Galaxy C10 will feature a 4000mAh battery with support for rapid charging, and the Galaxy C10+ should use the same configuration.

Sources affiliated with the news publication also claims that Samsung will announce the Galaxy C10 between May and June of this year. The phone is expected to be priced at EUR 630 (approximately, Rs. 49,948). However, given the mid-tier specs of the phone, we can expect it to retail for somewhere around the price of the Galaxy A8+ (2018) in India: Rs. 32,990.
