Galaxy C5 pricing rumors take it higher, Galaxy C7 way higher

The hierarchy of Samsung’s smartphone ranges isn’t exactly clear. Of course, there’s the Galaxy S series that gets center stage attention, followed by the nearly-flagship A-series. Somewhere down below are the Galaxy Ons and the bottom, as far as we can tell, is the Galaxy J-series.

This pins this current crop of HTC-esque Galaxy C phones supposedly to the heart of the mid-range. But as we look forward to next week’s launch event for the Galaxy C5 and Galaxy C7, we’re looking at some bumped up price tags for the phones.

Talk on Chinese social platform Tencent is propping up some of the features to come on these Galaxy Cs including fingerprint sensing home buttons, hi-fi sound and Samsung Pay (tied with Alipay). We also learn that the C7 may have a 3,300mAh, a 27 percent larger battery than the C5.

But with the feature load comes a bill and this bill isn’t the $245 or $275 as previously thought. This time around, we’re hearing that the 32GB model of the Galaxy C5 will be ¥2,199 ($336) and the 64GB version is to fetch ¥2,399 ($366). The Galaxy C7 is said to also have both storage options available at ¥2,599 ($397) and ¥2,799 ($428).

So, what do you think? Does the rumored “bang” justify so much “buck”? Or is the balance just wrong here and we should just hold our breaths for the Galaxy X?
