Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy C7 smartphone in China. This mid-range Android device seemingly offered great value for money which is why many were wondering whether it will ever find its way to other markets. While an FCC listing from June all but confirmed a US release of the Galaxy C7, Samsung has yet to make any official announcements on the matter. Regardless of that, online retailer B&H just started accepting pre-orders for the device. More specifically, B&H is offering a 64GB, dual-SIM version of the Galaxy C7 for $459, which is close to its Chinese price tag of 2,799 yuan. The model in question is unlocked and can be used with any GSM carrier. B&H states that both the Gold and Grey variants are coming soon but unfortunately doesn't expand on that. Still, if you want to get your hands on the Galaxy C7 as soon as possible, you can request an automatic email alert from the retailer which will let you know as soon as B&H has the Galaxy C7 in stock.
As for the phone itself, the Samsung Galaxy C7 boasts a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display featuring a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. The device is powered by 4GB of RAM and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core system-on-chip clocked at 2.0GHz and equipped with the Adreno 506 GPU. In addition to 64GB of internal storage, the Galaxy C7 also has a microSD card slot which supports up to 128GB of additional memory. The phone also boasts a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front shooter. That hardware is powered by a 3,300mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. Regarding extra features, the Galaxy C7 features a fingerprint sensor and an NFC adapter. Samsung's latest mid-range offering is 156.6 x 77.2 x 6.7 mm in size and weighs 165 grams. While it ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the device will likely be updated to Android Nougat in the near future.
All in all, this certainly doesn't seem like a bad deal for $459. Unfortunately, there's still no word on whether the somewhat cheaper, 32GB version of the Samsung Galaxy C7 will also be available in the US but more information is expected to follow soon.
