The original Samsung Galaxy C7 was announced in June 2016 and in February this year, the company released a variant of the same phone dubbed Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro.
Now, if Samsung is to follow the one year refresh time frame, we are already late as far as the Galaxy C7 2017 is concerned. But still, it’s better late than never and as it appears, the 2017 variant of the phone will be unveiled very soon, probably even before the Galaxy Note 8 is here.
According to a listing on Wi-Fi Alliance, the Galaxy C7 2017 will come with model number SM-C710, with the Chinese variant carrying model number SM-C7108. Unlike other Sammy phones released this year, the C7 2017 could actually be the first to come preinstalled with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. The WFA certification also confirms that the phone will carry firmware version C7108.001, but there’s nothing to do with the specs.
A separate report also emerged claiming that the Galaxy C7 2017 might not only be the first Sammy device to have Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, but it could also be the first to ship with a dual-lens camera setup on the back. This story came in after an alleged render of the phone appeared online showcasing a dual-lens setup, but this cannot be confirmed as for now.
Nonetheless, the fact that the WFA has cleared the phone means that its release is just around the corner. In fact, don’t be surprised if the phone comes out as early as this month or maybe early next month.
