As per the listing, Galaxy C7 2017 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. And surprisingly, the device will receive fuel from an octa-core MT6757 processor, more popularly known as Helio P20, clocked at 1.69Ghz. Surprising because past reports have pointed towards either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset or Samsung’s in-house Exynos 7872 SoC. Clearly, Samsung preferred to stick with MediaTek.
The Geekbench listing shows a 3GB RAM for Galaxy C7 2017 which should be paired with 32GB memory. Past rumor has it that the phone will also come in 4GB/64GB variant.
