The yet-to-be-unveiled Galaxy C10 has been doing rounds on the internet for quite some time now. Turns out, it’s not the only C series handset in works currently.
A new rumor suggests that there’s another Galaxy C device (excluding than Galaxy C10/ C10 Plus) which could be launched very soon. And we also have a name for it, the Galaxy C7 2017 edition, which could called a successor to C7 and C7 Pro handsets that the Korean company released in 2016.
The leak further adds that the smartphone will come equipped with the Samsung’s Exynos 7872 processor under-the-hood. But other than that, not much is known except that a software build ready with Samsung for testing on device, identified as version C7100CHC0AQF6, which also means that model no. of the C7 2017 would be SM-C7100 — for China that is, as it should be C710F for Asia/Europe.
For those who are wondering, Samsung is expected to launch the hexa-core Exynos 7872 chipset very soon. The chipset is built on 14nm process and can be considered as an alternative to the Snapdragon 650 SoC.
What separates the Exynos 7872 chipset from the others of its ilk is that it supports WCDMA bands too, which is why Meizu is also interested in using one for one of its upcoming devices.
