When Samsung Galaxy C5 and C7 made their debut in 2016, it was thought that the Galaxy C series will remain exclusive to China. However, things have been changing lately, especially following the release of the Galaxy C5 Pro and Galaxy C7 Pro.
The two phones have quietly been unveiled in China, but their global availability remains unclear. On the contrary, it appears that the high-end Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro could soon step out of China and head to other markets, potentially Europe.
The Wi-Fi Alliance has just certified a Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro with model number SM-C701F/DS, which suggests that not only is the phone meant for the global market, but it will also support dual-SIM connectivity. The WFA listing also confirms that the phone will be powered by Android OS, but there’s no mention of the specific version, although the already launched version has Android Marshmallow running the show.
We don’t expect any other changes to the specs and features despite the small tweak in the model number. The global variant of the Galaxy C7 Pro should keep the same 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1080p resolution and pixel density of 386ppi. Under the hood, the midrange phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor that is clocked at a speed of 2.2GHz and is paired with a RAM of 4GB.
The storage space available will be 64GB, but it can be expanded via a microSD card slot that can house up to 256GB. The back of Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has a glorious 16MP lens that ships with an aperture of f/1.9, has AF, dual-tone LED flash and supports 1080p video recording. For selfies, you also get a decent 16MP shooter that shares the same aperture as its rear counterpart, but you won’t find AF and dual-tone LED flash.
To keep the phone alive is a great 3300mAh battery unit. This is recharged via a USB-C port with support for fast charging technology. You also get things like fingerprint scanning, 3.5mm audio jack, 4G LTE connectivity and so on.
