The South Korean handset maker, Samsung is now coming up with new series of mid-range smartphones apart from its J-series. This new series is called C-series and Samsung is already all set to launch a couple of smartphones in this lineup. Samsung Galaxy C7 is the first handset to be launched by the brand under this series and it looks promising. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who might be interested in this one.
Good Camera: Samsung has finally retired the 16 Megapixels snapper on its flagship devices in favor of the 12 Dual Pixels snapper. However, the brand will not retire the 16 Megapixels camera yet and Is bringing it back in its newest Galaxy C7 handset. Having a flagship camera module on a mid-range handset is a good bet for the brand.
Brilliant display: Samsung is going to launch the first C-series smartphone with a decent 5.5-inch display with Super AMOLED on the front panel. This display boasts of a full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, therefore, visual experience is quite good.
Improved Touchwiz UI: The newest smartphone would come with the latest Touchwiz UI from the brand. Having received severe criticism from users in the past, Samsung finally trimmed bloatware from it and the new iteration has been tweaked for enhanced performance.
Audio output is average: The Samsung Galaxy C7 comes with an average loudspeaker located on the bottom of the handset. While the bottom speaker are usually low on volume, the speaker on this handset too is quite feeble.
4G LTE is limited: This handset does come with 4G LTE but is limited only to Cat 4, which delivers a download speed of 150 mbps. However, this is surprising considering that the processor in this handset can go upto Cat. 7 that delivers up to 300 mbps.
