Korean giant Samsung is going to launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 flagship device in the Galaxy Note series on August 23rd Galaxy Unpacked event. It looks like we are going to see the launch of the Galaxy C7 2017 very soon before the Galaxy Note 8 as the company has got the TENAA approval for the second variant of the device that comes with the model number SM-C7108 but has a similar design like the SM-C7100 variant we saw in the TENAA listing previously.
The TENAA approval listing, however, doesn’t have any specifications or details of this model number but those will be available soon. It looks like the SM-C7108 will be the dual SIM variant of the device that will be available for sale in Asian countries with its launch. It has a similar design with a fingerprint scanner on the front and dual rear camera with dual-tone LED flash as we saw with the SM-C7100 variant.
