It was first reported about three weeks ago that the Galaxy C5 (SM-C5000) was undergoing testing in India, back then we exclusively confirmed that the Galaxy C7 (SM-C7000) was also in the pipeline. SamMobile China reported a few days ago that the new C series handsets will have thin metallic bodies like the Galaxy A8 while specifications of the Galaxy C5 were also leaked online. We reported just yesterday that Samsung has started firmware development for the Galaxy C5. Benchmark results have now surfaced online which reveal specifications of the Galaxy C7.
The Galaxy C7 (SM-7000) appears to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with Adreno 506 graphics processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 8-megapixel front and 16-megapixel rear camera as well as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The Galaxy C5 features a 5.2-inch display and it’s likely that the Galaxy C7 will have a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 pixel resolution display. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy C series exclusively for the Chinese market next month though it’s possible that these handsets might make their way to other markets in the future.
