At merely 7-mm-thick and weighing 145g, Galaxy C5 Pro is ideal for single-handed navigation. Users can also browse content comfortably and easily on its 5.2-inch FHD Super AMOLED display (1920 x 1080).


High-Megapixel Lens to Record Every Moment

Both of Galaxy C5 Pro’s front and rear cameras are equipped with 16-megapixels and super wide F1.9 aperture lens. The rear camera is further enhanced with Phase Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) and Dual LED flash features, allowing users to capture clear and bright images perfectly in low light. The Floating Camera button enables users to take the best shots at ease, even when single-handed. The front camera offers an upgraded selfie experience with beautifying effects, Auto Flash feature and pre-installed photo enhancement functions, such as skin tone adjustment, face slimming and eyes enlargement. For a quick camera launch, users only need to double-click the Home button. Instant captures are now easier than ever with Galaxy C5 Pro.


Excellent Performance for Work and Leisure

Galaxy C5 Pro is equipped with 4GB of RAM and an Octa Core processor of 2.2GHz, offering high performance when users are working on mobile or enjoying multimedia in their leisure time. With 64GB of internal storage and microSD card expansion support of up to 256GB, users no longer need to frequently delete photos and files for storage space.


Galaxy C5 Pro supports USB Type-C for convenient data transfer. With fast-charging function, the device’s 2,600mAh battery can be fully charged in just 100 minutes.


Immersive Multimedia Experience
