South Korean smartphone giant, Samsung is said to be working on four dual camera smartphones to be released by the end of the year. And the devices are Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017), Samsung Galaxy C10, Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) Chinese variant, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
While the first dual camera smartphone from Samsung is heavily said to be the Galaxy Note 8, leaks about the other three smartphones keep on surfacing on the web with the latest one being about the Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017). The Galaxy C7 (2017) paid a visit to Chinese regulatory site TENAA, and the listing also revealed the key specifications of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017) was spotted in TENAA with model number- SM-C7100. Going by the listing, the Galaxy C7 (2017) will flaunt a 5.5-inch OLED Full HD display, carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The listing did not reveal the pixel density of the display.
The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon or Samsung Exynos chipset boasting clock speeds of 2.39GHz and 1.69GHz. And it’s an octa-core chipset. However, the listing did not reveal the processor name, but it is expected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 series, which would be dated series by the time Samsung officially launches the phone.
The chipset is teamed with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. The storage can be further expanded up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card. Imaging wise, the C7 (2017) will sport a dual camera setup at the back. The device could make use of a 13MP and a 5MP sensor at the back, with the latter being used to capture depth in the images. There will be a fingerprint scanner placed below the display, integrated into the home button.
However, the disappointment is that the phone will use a much smaller 2560mAh battery, which is questionable at the moment. An earlier report suggested a decent 3000mAh battery unit, but this leak will disappoint masses.
The phone will measure 152.4 x 74.7 x 7.9 mm, and weighs 178 grams. All the basic sensors such as proximity, ambient light, gyroscope, accelerometer, etc. will present on the phone. Samsung may add the NFC support as well to the phone.
The release date is not yet revealed by the company, but there’s a chance that the device might be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23.
