Samsung has recently made headlines with the release of the Galaxy C9 Pro in China, the first phone from the company to pack a massive 6GB RAM.
Now, it seems the Pro tag is also moving down the line, this time headed to the Galaxy C7, which was released earlier in the year alongside the Galaxy C5. According to a new Zauba listing, there is a Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro in the making and it is already in India undergoing tests. The phone comes with model number SM-C7010, which when compared to the SM-C7000 of the standard C7, should ring a bell as far as the Pro version or rather naming is concerned. The phone came in with a price tag of Rs. 13,645, a figure that converts to about $205. But this has nothing to do with the final price of the product.
In the leaked details, the supposed Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is listed with a screen size of 5.7 inches, which is likely given that the standard Galaxy C7 comes with a similar size while the new C9 Pro has 6 inches of display. Apart from the screen size and model number of the rumored Galaxy C7 Pro, the Zauba listing doesn’t give out more.
However, looking at the Galaxy C7 may give us a hint of what to expect when the Pro version comes in. As noted, the phone comes with a 5.7-inch screen, which is a Super AMOLED panel with Full HD resolution. There is an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC under the hood alongside a RAM of 4GB. You get two storage options of 32GB and 64GB with room for a microSD card of up to 128GB. The phone is powered by Android Marshmallow out of the box.
You won’t be disappointed on the battery capacity, which is a 3300mAh non-removable unit that is supported by Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The Galaxy C7 also comes with a fingerprint scanner, a 16MP rear snapper, and 8MP selfie camera.
Given that the Galaxy C7 Pro is expected to be, well, a pro version of this standard model, most of the features on board should be bumped up, including the processor and RAM, among others. Whether or not Samsung will also follow this model with a Galaxy C5 Pro is still unknown, but given the imbalance brought in by the ‘late’ Galaxy Note 7, the tech giant is in a position of doing almost anything that will mean it reaps more profits from the smartphone industry.
