We have been hearing about the Galaxy C7 (2017) since the past few months. The device has hit the certification websites such as TENAA, Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG spilling the beans on what we can expect from it.
The latest information is that the Samsung Galaxy C7 (2017) has visited the Geekbench benchmarking database revealing its key specifications. The benchmark listing confirms a few specs that we have already come across. Going by the listing, the Galaxy C7 (2017) will be based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. Under its hood, the smartphone will employ an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 (MT6757) SoC clocked at 1.69GHz.
The previous reports have pointed at either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC or the company's in-house Exynos 7872 SoC. So remains unclear why Samsung has decided to opt for the MediaTek chipset for the Galaxy C7 (2017).
Besides these details, the Galaxy C7 (2017)'s benchmark listing also tips that the smartphone will feature 3GB RAM and 32GB storage while the past rumors point out at the presence of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Maybe, there could be two variants of the smartphone with varying RAM and storage capacities.
The major highlight of the Galaxy C7 (2017) is the presence of the alleged dual-lens rear camera system on the smartphone. The device is likely to feature a 13MP + 5MP dual-lens rear camera. In fact, the presence of the dual camera setup at its rear has also been seemingly confirmed by a TENAA listing in the past. Apart from the dual camera setup, the smartphone is alleged to feature a 16MP selfie camera as well at the front. Also, the Chinese certification website has revealed that the smartphone might be fitted with a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display.
Given that the Galaxy Note 8 slated to be launched on August 23 at the Galaxy Unpacked event will be the first Samsung smartphone to feature a dual camera setup at its rear, we can expect the Galaxy C7 (2017) to arrive in the coming months.
