The Pop C1 is touted as being “perfect for any pocket.” Playing off the size, this one will be sporting a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 320. The C1 will be powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and equipped with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 1300 mAh battery and a 2 megapixel rear-facing camera.

The C3 will also have 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 1300 mAh battery and a 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera. Both the Pop C1 and C3 will be running Android 4.2 and available as a single and dual-SIM model.
Stepping over to the Pop C5 and we find a device that will be sporting a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 854 x 480. The C5 will have a dual-core 1.3GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. Other goodies for the C5 will include Android 4.2 along with an 1800 mAh battery, VGA quality front-facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera.
