Samsung has launched a new smartphone for its Chinese customers called the Galaxy C8, making it the third device in its portfolio to sport dual cameras. It hasn’t revealed price or availability details for the handset yet.
Based on its appearance and specs, the Galaxy C8 seems to be a renamed version of the Galaxy J7+ which came out in Thailand earlier this week. The two have almost everything in common right down to each phone’s dimensions. The only obvious difference between the two is the fact that Samsung is offering the former in 2 storage variants.
While the Galaxy J7+ is being sold in a 4GB/32GB combination, the Galaxy C8 is set to be available in 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB options. Cost details for the second haven’t been disclosed till now, but it should be similar to the first’s THB 12900 ($390 or Rs 24890) rate.
The Galaxy C8’s star attraction is its 13MP f/1.7 + 5MP f/1.9 duo. The pair make effects like Dual Photo possible, allowing users to shift the focus of an image after it’s been shot. There’s also a 16MP selfie snapper that distinguishes itself with an aperture of f/1.9 and an LED flash unit.
