Samsung Galaxy C7 2017 is almost ready for release, according to a Bluetooth SIG certification listing.
The phone has appeared on the certification body and history tells us that this should mean its release is just around the corner. This is, in fact, true given that the Galaxy C7 was first released in June 2016. As you may know, Samsung only needs a year to refresh its phones and as a result, it makes sense that the Galaxy C7 2017 has just been certified by the SIG.
The phone carries model number SM-C7100 and since the original Galaxy C7 has model number SM-C7000, it’s common knowledge that this is indeed the Galaxy C7 2017. The phone will be unveiled in multiple markets thanks to the fact that the same body has also certified other variants with model numbers SM-C7108 and SM-C710F, with the latter expected to appear in the Europe and other regions across Asia and Africa. As for the SM-C7100, we can confirm that this should be a Chinese model.
Other than the model numbers, there’s nothing much we get from the SIG listing. But since it’s a successor to the Galaxy C7, we expect a few improvements here and there. The 2016 model came with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display screen with a 1080p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC mated with 4GB RAM and two storage options of 32GB and 64GB, which can also be expanded using a microSD card.
The back has a 16MP shooter and the front ships with an 8MP lens for selfies. As for the battery, you get a decent 3300mAh package.
