Samsung's mid-range phone Galaxy C series, which made its official in May this year, was a huge success in China. Now, a report has emerged that Samsung has already commenced testing the advanced Pro series.

As per, a logistic company, Samsung has imported more than 4 units of Galaxy C7 Pro bearing model-number: SM-C7010 from China to New Delhi for evaluation. And in the Description section, we see that each piece costs Rs.13,645, but it is likely to be increased by around Rs. 2,000, due to local tax.

It also shows that Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro will sport sport a 5.7-inch screen, same as the original model, but the key features such as resolution, camera, processor, RAM, storage and battery capacity are still under dark.

That said, we are certain that Samsung will keep the metal-based Unibody design language like we see in the Galaxy C7 and for the sake of differentiation, it adds more RAM, improves camera hardware and increases battery capacity, so that the device matches its 'Pro' series tag.
