The Galaxy C7 was launched in June last year so it’s about time that Samsung came out with its successor. We’ve been hearing reports about a Galaxy C7 (2017) that’s in the pipeline. The upcoming handset received its Bluetooth certification two weeks ago and it has now stopped by the Wi-Fi Alliance for yet another certification.

The Galaxy C7 (2017) bearing model number SM-C7100 has been spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance. It has been granted the requisite Wi-Fi certification which means that it’s now one step closer to launch. As previously mentioned, the handset has already received its Bluetooth certification so that’s out of the way as well.

Not much is known about the specs of this handset. Its predecessor was a bona fide mid-range smartphone with its Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM, 32/64GB storage and 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. It also features a 16-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front camera.

Samsung initially launched this handset in China and that’s what it will probably do with the new handset as well. The possibility exists that Samsung might eventually launch the Galaxy C7 (2017) in other markets across the globe.

Since the month of June has gone by and it has been over a year since the original handset was released, it should only be a matter of time before the Galaxy C7 (2017) is made official.
