Following the announcement of the Galaxy C5, Samsung has also made the Galaxy C7 official.

The C7 is the phablet version the Galaxy C5. Standing at a 5.7-inch screen, it bears a significant increase in size but retaining the same full HD resolution. This means that the C5 might have a slightly sharper display among the two as the PenTile subpixel is sub-optimal. Nevertheless, AMOLED is a gorgeous thing to look at as the colors just seem to pop out from the screen.


A more capable Snapdragon chipset runs the show, along with its octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 and Adreno 506 GPU. There’s 4GB of RAM and it comes in either 32GB or 64GB of storage packages. Galaxy C7 uses the same camera as the C5; 16-megapixel rear shooter and an 8-megapixel front camera. Samsung included a considerably bigger 3,300mAh battery which will make the handset last throughout the day. The C7 also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for faster charging times.
