Even as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ are hogging all the headlines, including in India, the Korean major is launching another one of its smartphones the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro in India this week. It will available on Amazon from April 11. The phone is being released in three colours - dark blue, gold and pink gold. It’s an all metal body phone with no plastic. That is from the appearance point of view.

Display and processor

The new offering from Samsung will sport a 5.7-inch AMOLED display offering 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution with a moderate density of 386ppi. The phone weighs 172 grams and can accommodate dual SIMs.  The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor at its core though the phones sold in India are expected to be fitted with a slightly modified Qualcomm MSM8953-Pro Snapdragon 626 - India version.

The phone will have a 4 GB RAM and an internal storage of 64 GB. A slot for microSD card is provided that can expand the capacity to 256GB. The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro will run on the Android 6 (Marshmallow).  


This new smartphone from the Samsung stable has equally rated 16 MP cameras in the rear as well as in the front. There is a dual LED flash to aid in capturing images through the f/1.9 autofocus lens.


The Galaxy C7 Pro is fitted with a 3300 mAh, non-removable Li-Ion battery. There is provision for fast charging as well.

Other Features

This phone has the fingerprint unlock feature right in the front screen itself. According to Samsung, there are a couple of features on the phone that can be highlighted. One relates to a facility to create a control centre for the games you play regularly. The games get automatically updated and you can access them with ease. The other one relates to the audio technology incorporated in the Galaxy C7 Pro. The proprietary Ultra High Quality Audio (UHQA) technology ensures you can listen to audio and video files with the best clarity possible.

Two different WhatsApp accounts in one phone?

Samsung also claims that by installing the My Knox app on the Galaxy C7 Pro, you can operate two different WhatsApp accounts in it. This needs to be checked whether this feature will be available on the phones being released in India also since the website referred to above is the company’s Hong Kong site. One will know for sure in another few days.

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro will be sold through Amazon India at a price of Rs 27,990
