Galaxy C7 Pro breaks cover in a series of leaked images
Back in September, we exclusively revealed that Samsung is working on two new handsets as part of its Galaxy C series, which will eventually launch outside of China. We’ve heard a lot about the bog-standard, mid-range variant, the Galaxy C5 Pro, and it’s even posed for a photograph, but information has been a little sparse with regards to its high-end brethren, the Galaxy C7 Pro.
Fortunately, that’s just changed. Earlier today, a series of leaked images surfaced online, showcasing the design of the long-rumored Galaxy C7 Pro from all angles. As you can see, it sports an almost identical aluminum iPhone-esque unibody to the Galaxy C7 that launched back in June 2016. However, there are a couple of minor changes visible in the images, including an upgraded camera sensor.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy C7 Pro is expected to sport a 5.7-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 626 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable internal storage and a 3,300mAh battery. It should ship running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface when it launches first in China, priced at CNY 2,799 ($405).
It doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait too much longer for the Galaxy C7 Pro to hit the open market, either. It’s already been granted FCC and Wi-Fi certification, which usually indicates that a release is imminent. Our best guess is that Samsung is putting the finishing touches to the device’s software, then it’ll be ready to hit the shelves. Recent rumors point towards that happening before the end of January.
