Samsung Galaxy C7 specifications, features: According to the benchmark list, the Galaxy C7 flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. It is also expected to feature 32GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 16-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera, and it will run on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1.
The smartphone was recently spotted on Zauba, India’s import-export website, with a price tag of Rs 13,635, GSMArena reports. While the retail price is bound to be different, the price range falls in line with earlier reports. In India, Samsung recently launched the Galaxy J3 (2016) for Rs 8,990, while the Galaxy A5 (2016) was launched earlier this year for Rs 29,400.
If Samsung manages to keep the price tag around the Rs 15,000 mark, the Samsung Galaxy C7 will give tough competition to smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K4 Note and the Yu Yureka Plus to name a few. We will however reserve our comparison till Samsung launches the smartphone.
