Samsung has come a significant way since their Galaxy Note 7 debacle last year and it seems that the South Korean consumer electronics giants are striving to start the year on a high note. With already quite a number of devices up their sleeves in the forthcoming months, including their flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, it is quite precedented that 2017 is slating to be quite a good year for them. Samsung recently launched their Galaxy Gear series of premium smartwatches and now it seems like two more upcoming devices have been spotted online according to the latest leaks and reports.
Expected to be called the C5 Pro and C7 Pro, the upcoming phones have been making the rounds in the rumour mills of late — and are expected to join the already-released C9 Pro, which was released only in China. First leaked on import tracking website Zauba with the model number SM-C5000, A Weibo report suggested strongly that the C5 Pro is pegged to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and a RAM configuration higher or equal to 3GB. The leaks on the social media website also reveal a 16MP rear-facing and a front-facing camera whose sensor size is still unspecified. It is still assumed that the front camera for video calling will also be a 16MP shooter, same as the recently released C9 Pro.
The C7 Pro, which is pegged to be a slightly more premium variant will sport a 5.7-inch full HD display powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and a minimum of 4GB RAM specification. According to the benchmark test on Geekbench, the phone scored a cool 1,000 on the single-core test and 5,679 on the multicore test which makes it a pretty powerful device considering the fact that is a mid-range smartphone.
Samsung has chosen to stay considerably tight-lipped regarding when these smartphones will hit the market but there is a high probability that the tech giants will announce the devices at the MWC 2017 event in February.
