Since last September, the leaks announce the arrival of two new terminals in the range Galaxy C of Samsung:
the C5 Pro and C7 Pro. These are upgraded versions of the Galaxy C5 and C7 released in June of last year.
They would come with the C9 Pro already on sale in the Middle Kingdom (and the international version could
reach us in the coming weeks). The idea of Samsung would therefore be to deploy an intermediate version of
the C5 and C7, with the minimum of possible changes to wait until the real renewal that could take place in
the middle of 2017.
Chassis and chipset change
Last week, an institutional visual, with the three Pro models of the Galaxy C range, leaked on Chinese social networks,
suggesting that the C5 Pro and C7 Pro could be unveiled very quickly.
We were not far from the truth, since Samsung officially put online the product sheet of the Galaxy C7 Pro on its
local official website. The smartphone appears as we previously thought. The design of the chassis is identical to
that of the C9 Pro (with the three horizontal strips that bar the hull), with great difference the size of the screen.
Here, it measures 5.7 inches, like all terminals with the number “7” (C7, A7, J7, etc.), except the S7 and Note 7,
This slab is Super AMOLED and displays images in 1080p, a resolution of 386 pixels per inch. Inside the mobile,
we find almost identically the platform of the original C7. There will be only two differences.
The first is the chipset: the Snapdragon 625 of the C7 is replaced by the Snapdragon 626.
The only major difference between the two components is the Cortex-A53 core frequency,
which goes from 2 GHz to 2.2 GHz. In addition Bluetooth goes from 4.1 to 4.2 and the WiFi ac switches
from dual band to MiMo. The Adreno 506 is always present. Second difference: the webcam. It goes from
8 to 16 megapixels (the objective remains the same, opening at f / 1.9), as the set of mid-range Samsug products
from 2017 unveiled so far.
Otherwise, the same as last year
For the rest, we rediscover a relatively homogeneous and interesting technical record, despite a slight stagnation:
4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage (expandable by microSDXC up to 256 GB extra), 3300 mAh battery, dual SIM
( USB 2.0 type-C, LTE connection, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC (with Samsung Pay), front fingerprint reader,
16 megapixel photo sensor with dual-tone flash, Standard autofocus and lens opening to f / 1.9, as well as Android
6.0 Marsmallow with Touchwiz.
All of these elements are stored in an all-metal chassis of 7 mm thickness. The smartphone weighs 172 grams.
It will be offered very quickly in three colors: golden, golden pink and a very nice night blue.
The Galaxy C7 Pro will be more advanced than its predecessor, the Galaxy C7……
The Galaxy C7 Pro should come with more advanced features compared to the Galaxy C7, which was announced this year in May. The phone had the same display size as the next C7 Pro, a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Other than that, he ran a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, coupled with an Adreno 506 graphics processing unit, which were much more powerful than the Snapdragon 617 processor of the Galaxy C5 and GPUAdreno 405. The device was offered in two variants, One that came with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while the other had 64GB of local storage. The owners could improve the internal memory and add up to 128GB using a microSD card. The Galaxy C7 came with a fingerprint scanner built into the home button and there is no reason why Samsung would not provide fingerprint authentication on the upcoming Galaxy C7 Pro. The battery capacity on the Galaxy C7 reached 3300mAh and came with Qualcomm Fast Charge 3.0, which would allow the phone to charge faster than the normal pace. The capacity of the rear camera was 16MP, with an 8MP sensor at the front. It is unclear whether Samsung will make the C7 Pro available in other markets than China, but more information about the phone will surely surface soon.
