Yesterday, we told you about the first smartphone under Samsung’s new Galaxy C Series, the Galaxy C5. This was not the only smartphone that Samsung has been working on as the company also had the Galaxy C7 which is a superior device compared to the C5. Samsung did not unveil the Galaxy C7 when unveiling the Galaxy C5 probably because it wanted each device to shine on its own.
With the Samsung Galaxy C5 out of the way, the company went ahead to unveil the Galaxy C7 to the world. The phone was launched in China and the company has still not confirmed if it will be selling it internationally.
Starting with the display, the Galaxy C7 has a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. This is slightly bigger compared to the C5 which has a 5.2 inch display. Powering the Galaxy C7 is a 2GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
The Galaxy C7 is available with either 32 or 64GB of storage space that can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. Just like the C5, Samsung has also embedded a fingerprint scanner in the home button.
For the camera, the Galaxy C7 has a 16MP unit at the back with an 8MP one in front. The front facing camera has a f/1.9 aperture which will allow you to take some decent selfies even when the lighting is not so good.
The phone comes with Android Marshmallow out of the box and has a 3,300mAh battery that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
As for price, the 32GB model will be available for $396 (approximately Ksh 40,000) while the 64GB model will be available for $425 (approximately 43,000). Both these models support 4G LTE.
Samsung is still not clear as to when the C7 will be available on the market, we will know more about that later
