Samsung has already announced in the past to launch the Pro versions of the Galaxy C7 and C5 in 2017. The company has already started working on them and after a couple of leaks and listings, Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is now run through Geekbench benchmarking test recently. Codenamed as SM-C7010, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro carries an Octa core Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.
Other information leaked is its screen size. The phone will get a 5.7-inch display, probably with a Full HD display. As per Zauba listing, the phone was imported to India with a price tag of Rs 20000 approx per unit. But this price won’t be the final selling price after the launch. It would be priced around Rs 30000 if launched in India.
The benchmarking result showed impressive results scoring 1000 on the single-core test and 5679 on the multi-core test. Global announcement of the phone is expected soon, probably next month. Its release in other parts of the world especially in India is questionable as the Galaxy C7 has not landed in the country yet. But the Galaxy C7 Pro was listed on Zauba import tracking list a month back.
Last month, we have read a couple of stories stating that Samsung is working on two smartphones namely Galaxy C5 Pro and Galaxy C7 Pro. Samsung has unveiled Galaxy C9 Pro in China recently. Codenamed as SM-C7010, Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is spotted on Zauba listing with a massive 5.7-inch display size.
Here, an interesting thing about the phone is its pricing. The device is imported to India at a price tag of INR 13645. If we go back a little further, Samsung Galaxy C7 – already launched in China was priced at INR 25000. Strangely, Samsung has not launched Galaxy C7 in India yet. And now presence of Pro version of the previous model is exciting. And, if the Galaxy C7 Pro will come out in India around INR 20000-22000, then it would give a stiff competition to already existing smartphones in high-mid range segment.
More information about the phone is not leaked yet. But we can expect a feature-laden smartphone by the end of this year.
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) was recently launched in South Korea without any further release information. The phone was priced at KRW 649000 (INR 39000 approx). Now, the device has appeared on Zauba with codename SM-810F along with a price tag of INR 13,635 per unit. Although, this would not be the final launch price in India. As per Korean pricing, it is expected that the phone will be priced around INR 35000 at the time of launch in India.
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) is a successor of the Galaxy A8, launched in 2015. The phone harbours a 5.7-inch Full HD AMOLED Display with Always-ON display feature, last seen on Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge. This device is powered by an Octa core Exynos 7420 chipset coupled with 3GB RAM, which guarantee seamless performance.
Samsung Galaxy 8 (2016) flaunts a 16 megapixels rear and an 8 megapixel front facing shooter. Both the cameras are capable of recording Full HD videos. It is fuelled by a 3300mAh non-removable battery.
As the phone has just arrived on Zauba, exact release date for India is not confirmed yet. You can expect its release in the month of October itself.
