We have been hearing rumors of the new series by Samsung from quite some time now. The first report came when Zauba, an Indian customs database, surfaced with an import listing of some mystery handsets. The listing was of a ‘C-series’ smartphone. Zauba unveiled a smartphone with a model number SM-C5000 which featured a 5.2 inch display. However soon after that, another Samsung C series smartphone was spotted on AnTuTu Benchmark with a model number SM-C7000. Today the same SM-C7000 has been listed on GFXBench with all of its specifications.
According to the recent benchmark test, the Samsung Galaxy C7 will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD display and it’ll be powered by Qualcomm’s 2.0GHz Snapdragon 625 SoC. The chipset will be accompanied by 3.5GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage capacity (expandable via microSD slot). In addition to that, we have a 16 megapixel camera at the back whereas an 8 megapixel shooter has been dedicated for selfies and video chats. Last but not the least, the smartphone will be powered by the latest, Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Marshmallow features many change from its predecessor. Some of the major changes are described ahead. Firstly, Doze – this feature simply puts the smartphone into a ‘deeper sleep’ when it hasn’t been used for a prolonged period of time. As a result, the battery life of the smartphone is drastically increased. Moving on the next big change: Now on Tap – Marshmallow can predict your needs by a simple long press on the home button that provides quick access to learn more about the hang out spot or how to get there. You can use this feature to search for restaurants and even the type of food it serves. Last but not the least, the all new app drawer – as suggested by the heading, Marshmallow comes with a completely redesigned app drawer. Main improvements include the app search mechanism. You can scroll around with alphabet scrolling and can pin your favorite apps on the top to gain easy and fast access.
