After the Samsung Galaxy C5, the company has also made the Galaxy C7 go official. While the Galaxy C5 is up for pre-orders in China, and will be available from June 6, availability details of the Galaxy C7 haven’t been revealed yet.
The Samsung Galaxy C7 is essentially the larger variant of the Galaxy C5. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, and sports a hybrid dual-SIM card slot. It features a 5.7-inch Super Amoled full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S7 bears a 16-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera – both with f/1.9 aperture. The smartphone offers 32GB and 64GB storage options, which is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB) via the hybrid dual-SIM slot. There’s a 3300mAh battery inside, and connectivity options include NFC (with Samsung Pay support), 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.2.
The fingerprint scanner is embedded inside the home button in the front, and will be available in Gold, Pink Gold, Grey, and Silver colour options. The Galaxy C7 is at a slight higher price point than the Galaxy C5, with the 32GB variant priced at CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 26,600), and 64GB is at CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs.28,600).
Just to compare, the Samsung Galaxy C5 has a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Super Amoled display, runs on an octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC, and packs a 2600mAh battery. All other specs remain the same. The Galaxy C5 smartphone is only available on pre-orders in China as of now. The 32GB is priced at CNY 2,200 (roughly Rs. 22,500), and the 64GB is priced at CNY 2,400(roughly Rs. 24,600).
