TP-Link’s Neffos C5 and C5L are affordable dual-SIM devices that start at RM359


Earlier we reported that TP Link was due to launch two new smartphones in Malaysia under their Neffos banner. Today, they pulled back the covers on the Neffos C5 and C5L — two entry level smartphones with decent specs.

Neffos C5


Kicking things off is the higher spec Neffos C5. The C5 comes packing a 5-inch 720p HD display with a MediaTek MT6735 processor mated to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable (via microSD up to 32GB) internal storage running on the inside.


In the camera department the C5 comes with an 8MP primary camera mounted on the back while selfies are handled by a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Giving the device juice is a 2,200 mAh battery.

Moving on to the more entry-level of the two, the Neffos C5L features a 4.5-inch FWVGA display on the front. Inside, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 210 processor mated to 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage.

For optics, the device gets the same 8-megapixel rear-facing camera as the more expensive C5, but the selfie shooter gets a slight bump down to 2MP. Keeping the lights on is a modest 2,000 mAh battery.


Both devices will come running Android 5.1 Lollipop and have support for 4G LTE and dual-SIM capabilities.

It is unfortunate that TP-Link didn’t bring in the more powerful C5 Max as that device looked quite promising so we will just have to settle for these two for now. That said, there was a C5 Max on display but it was labeled “Coming soon”.

If you want to pick one up for yourself, the Neffos C5 is priced at RM539 while the Neffos C5L will set you back RM359. Both devices will be available in pearl white and dark grey, and will go on sale online at Lazada Malaysia beginning 12th April. If you’re one of the first 100 customers to pick up either device, you will receive a free powerbank (worth RM99) and a screen protector.
