Upcoming Galaxy C7 bares its specs out on GFXBench as Samsung's new upper midrange

Upcoming Galaxy C7 bares its specs out on GFXBench as Samsung's new upper midrange
Samsung will soon be introducing a new mid-range series of handsets that will still have premium housing, but will differ from the glass A-series in that it will "only" have metal chassis, or at least so the rumors say. The newly-coined line will be dubbed the C-series, and one of its reps just disclosed every bit of information about itself, courtesy of the GFXBench database.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy C7 will apparently sport a 5.5" Full HD display, 2.0 GHz Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, and 16 MP/ 8 MP shooters on the back and front. Internal storage is listed as 32 GB, with microSD slot added for good measure. The whole setup looks quite decent, and running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box is definitely a plus in this day and age.

According to gsmarena in 2014 Samsung released 62 devices phones;http://tinyurl.com/zvqt768 Whereas in 2015 they released 45 phones.:http://tinyurl.com/gqwwa45 Bear in mind a lot of them are same phones with different So yes, they've scaled back on their devices. Even if they didn't you always have the option of NOT BUYING IT. Its not like they are shoving it down your throat. Each device is created with a different user with different preference in mind. For you to pluck a number out from thin air and say 'less than 10 smartphone' is a very stupid argument.

Releases 45 devices. Supports less than half of the devices with further software updates. Why release and confuse consumers with choices, when your "further commitment process" towards all those devices is choosy? This only helps make the case of fragmentation stronger. Samsung being by far the largest Android OEM contributes greatly.

There are other OEMs who release handful of devices still they never update them. So releasing many or less devices has nothing to do with updates at all. Stop relating the two together.

Yeah. Because no devices need to be supported, right? Speak for Samsung. As the leading Android OEM, surely it needs to step up in all the categories not just the premium or higher midrange ones! Moto delivers updates to all its devices which can support the latest software. Sony supports its midrangers though, the updates arrive quite late. Asus does the same. Do you see now?

Whose confused? How many countries are on this planet?over 230+. That means different customers, different needs. How many models are released in the USA. Last I checked there were maybe 10 options. When you go to the store to by soda, there are at least 30 choices. Are you confused if you only want a coke? McDonald's sells 10 different hamburgers. if you only want a Big Mac, are you confused by the other choices? Many of the choices of phones they make, are only released in certain markets. So tell me, how the phuck would you be confused about a phone model, that isnt even sold where you live? If you are so stupid, you can't choose what you want from the few choices you have, then that sounds liek a personal problem. No one else is confused. You cant speak for anyone else but YOU. YOURE THE ONE CONFUSED...DUMMY!

Come back after a reading comprehension lesson, paid shill.

My issue with Samsung is with their software support for all the devices they release. Which they don't provide except for its flagships and higher midrangers. Nothing wrong with choices whatsoever when you can support all of them. Also, nice analogy with fast food that takes 10 minutes to get it over with and between a smartphone that's likely to be with a consumer for a much much longer time. Again, try reading and get your Samsung blinders off. Like you every now and then tell iUsers to do.

Why not just make a phone for each category like how motorola doing it.

The truth is there is no such thing as 'each category'. There isn't just poor, middle-class and rich category. For example several people I know work in construction industry so they need phone which is ultra-durable. Similarly, in lots of third-world countries dual sim is very popular and US you have to make CDMA carrier specific phones. So no such thing as 'each category'. Many people don't need a 'smartphone' just Whatsapp on their phone. Different folks different strokes. Be together not the same. PS. Don't you think the world will be a boring place with only one option for each category ?

The iPhone 5c and even the iP5 is a much better option. Every Android midranger phones lag.

Who wants an old phone like the 5c it is so old and out of date (not that it was ever up-to-date), same for the 5s. Everyone that blindly says all mid-range Android phones lag are sadly deluded. My Xiaomi Note 3 Pro is mid-range compared to other Android phones, but beats any iPhone some costing 4x its price in many areas and matches them in many more. The iPhone 6s for example is struggling to make mid-range in comparison and it blows the 6 out of the water.

Dear Samsung, Please stop making a Galaxy device for every letter in the alphabet and just focus on on the Galaxy S and the Note series... and if you really want to, pick one mid-tier phone. Then spend all other resources on continuing to refine and slim-down Touchwiz so that updates dont take 6 months to push out. Also, start breaking out your apps from TouchWiz and put them on either the Play Store, or the Galaxy App Store. That will help everyone. Thanks. Sincerely, a Galaxy S6 user
