Samsung introduced its metal-clad Galaxy C series earlier this year in May, with the Galaxy C5 and the Galaxy C7. Recently, it launched the Galaxy C9 Pro, which stands out as Samsung’s first smartphone with 6GB of RAM. Two more smartphones may join the list and they could be the Galaxy C5 Pro and the Galaxy C7 Pro. The Galaxy C7 Pro was recently spotted on Indian import/export site Zauba, and a report now claimed that both smartphones could be launched as early as next month.
A post on Weibo claims that Samsung will will make both the smartphones official sometime in December, and it also reveals a teeny bit of its specifications. Spotted by theandroidsoul, the post says that the Galaxy C5 Pro will bear the model number SM-C5010 and will be powered a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. The Galaxy C7 Pro with the model number SM-C7010 will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 626 chipset. Other than that, no other information about the smartphones is revealed.
As for the Galaxy C7 Pro, it was spotted on Zauba indicating that an India launch could be possible soon. The listing only revealed that the Galaxy C7 Pro will feature a 5.7-inch display and it could be priced around the Rs 15,000 mark.

As the name probably suggests, these upcoming smartphones are the successors to the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7. These were launched in China priced around $330 (Rs 22,100 approximately) and $396 (Rs 26,000 approximately) respectively.
