Samsung has yet to announce a handset that comes with a dual-camera setup on the back. Earlier, the Galaxy S8+ was rumoured to sport a dual-camera, but that did not happen and now new leaks lead us to believe that the dual-camera will be featured in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8. However, we are also hearing some rumours suggesting that there might be a mid-range smartphone to become Samsung’s first ever device with a dual-camera setup, even before the Galaxy Note 8.
This new mid-range smartphone is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017), however, nothing has been confirmed by the company yet. We do not know if and when, and in what regions Samsung intends to launch the Galaxy C7 (2017). It is not the only one to come with a dual-camera setup; Word is that the Galaxy C10 and a variant of the Galaxy J7 (2017) will also receive this feature.
According to a trusted leakster on Twitter, the Galaxy C7 (2017) is already being tested by the company for release and we might not have to wait too long for the launch of this device. The first generation Galaxy C7 was first launched back in May last year while the latest Galaxy C7 (2017) is the company’s second-gen Galaxy C7 smartphone.
Having said that, the device will most likely come with an all-metal body. The Galaxy C7 (2017) is expected to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 processor, however, there are equal chances of the phone being powered by the Snapdragon 652 or the Snapdragon 653 chipsets, given they all are mid-range processors.
The handset will allegedly pack in 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage and come with a dedicated home button up front that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. As for the display, the Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017) might sport a 5.7-inch Full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display just like the first-gen Galaxy C7.
When it comes to the photography department, it is still unknown which cameras will mount the handset. It is quite possible that the Galaxy C7 (2017) will flaunt a 16MP primary sensor on its back and come with an 8MP front-facing shooter for selfies and video calls. Internally, chances are the phone will be backed by a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support and the device might run on the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1 with Samsung’s custom UI on top.
Further leaks and rumours might give us a better glimpse into the new Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017) and until then we are keeping an ear to the ground.
