New Samsung Galaxy C7 benchmark appears to confirm upper-mid-range specs

It’s the tide of progress: what once was state-of-the-art is now ho-hum; what was once premium is now mid-range, or dare we say, entry-level? That’s almost unarguably a good thing, as today’s most affordable phones emerge capable of running circles around the top-shelf models of yesteryear. Lately we’ve been checking out evidence for the new mid-range Galaxy C lineup from Samsung, primarily as revealed through benchmark publications. Last week we saw the SM-C7000 – or Galaxy C7 – pop up with 4GB of RAM and a new Snapdragon 625 SoC. Now a second benchmark publication appears to confirm those hardware details.

The previous AnTuTu finding is joined by a GFXBench breakdown, and mention of an Adreno 506 GPU sure looks like it supports the SoC ID as a Snapdragon 652. The 3.5GB of RAM mentioned here similarly supports the idea of the phone launching with 4GB on board (half a gig being already in use), and the 1080p display also matches our expectations – while adding the note that the panel’s likely a 5.5-inch component.

The 16MP/8MP camera pair picks up its own confirmation, as does the presence of Android 6.0.1 powering the hardware.

There’s still no word from Samsung on when it may be planning to introduce the Galaxy C7 (or other Galaxy C phones), but rumors suggest that the hardware could be only weeks away from making its debut.
