Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro and possibly the rest of the Galaxy C series to come in future will no longer be exclusive to China.
The latest release of the Galaxy C7 Pro in India is basically what underpins this statement, but the phone is not the first in the Galaxy C series to make it to one of the most promising emerging markets. Back in January, Sammy launched the Galaxy C9 Pro in the same market, a phone that has received some reasonable praise in a market that is largely dominated by Xiaomi.
Like the rest of the Galaxy C series, the newly launched Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro comes in with an impressive all-metal design that has become characteristic of the South Korean company’s midrange phones. The high-end family is now using a combination of glass and metal, but you’ll still love the look and feel of the premium unibody of the C7 Pro, which also includes a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button.
As for the specs, Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display screen that packs a Full HD 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the handset ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, an octa-core chipset clocked at 2.2GHz. This chipset has featured in a number of phones, including the BlackBerry KEYone that has been causing a major havoc in the smartphone industry even before it becomes available for purchase.
Unlike the Galaxy C9 Pro, the C7 Pro gets a 4GB RAM, but the storage is the same at 64GB. As usual, you get a microSD card slot for expanding this storage by up to 256GB. In terms of software, you might not like what Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro comes with – the year-old Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Like the Galaxy A7 2017, we expect this phone’s update to Android 7.0 Nougat to be ready in the coming weeks. On the brighter side, you get Samsung Pay out of the box.
For the optics, the Galaxy C7 Pro has 16MP sensors on both sides. The main shooter adds a LED flash, AF, 1080p video recording and f/1.9 aperture, but the secondary camera only gets the same aperture and video recording capability. The phone also offers 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, USB-C port as well as a 3300mAh battery that is supported by fast charging technology.
You can have the Galaxy C7 Pro in two color variants of Navy Blue and Gold and even though the phone has been confirmed with a price tag of Rs 27,990 ($436), it will not be available until April 11. Apparently, the C7 Pro will be sold exclusively via Amazon India.
