It is now one year since the first Samsung Galaxy C7 handset was released and do you know what this means?
Well, it means that it’s time for the phone’s successor dubbed Samsung Galaxy C7 2017 to break cover. At a time when everyone is excited at the prospects of a first ever Samsung phone with a dual-lens camera courtesy of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it appears that the tech giant has other ideas in place.
According to leaked TENAA images, China’s certification body for mobile phones, the Galaxy C7 2017 will ship with a dual-lens camera setup on the back. This has been in the rumor mills for a while now, but the appearance on TENAA puts to bed all the rumors about the phone, but the details on the specs remain unconfirmed.
Other than the Galaxy Note 8 and now the Galaxy C7 2017, Samsung is also expected to use dual-lens camera setups on the likes of Galaxy C10 as well as the Chinese variant of the Galaxy J7 2017, a phone that has already been released here in Kenya.
As noted, the details on specs remain unclear, but we expect to see an upgrade over the Snapdragon 625 SoC used last time out. Most of the specs used on the 2016 model should be retained, among them a 5.7-inch Full HD display, 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage options and a 3300mAh battery unit. While we know that the main camera will have two lenses, we still don’t know the finer details of these lenses.
From the images, the design looks more of the same as the original Galaxy C7, which is still not bad considering how premium the phone feels with its metallic unibody. However, Samsung might throw in IP68 dust and water resistance, just like with the case of the Galaxy A 2017 family released earlier this year.
