Samsung has launched two dual camera phones so far in 2017 – the Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy J7+. There are still more to come, and today, the Samsung Galaxy C8 was officially unveiled by the company which is the third device from the company which features a dual camera setup on the rear. The design of the phone is pretty much similar to that of the J7+, and you won’t be able to differentiate these phone phones if compared side-by-side regarding the design. Seems like the Galaxy C8 is the J7+ for China.

The phone features a unibody metal design with rounded corners for a better grip.

Now coming to the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy C8, it has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Full-HD Display and has two CPU variants – one with a 2.39GHz CPU while other with a 1.69GHz CPU.

Coming to the main highlight of the phone, there is a dual camera setup on the back with the primary camera being 13MP with f/1.7 aperture while the secondary camera is 5MP with f/1.9 aperture.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat runs out of the box with Samsung Experience 8.5. There is also a 3,000mAh battery under the hood.
