The meta wraps smoothly around the sides of Galaxy C7 Pro, which comes in two vibrant color options; Gold and Navy Blue. While the back of the smartphone has stripped antenna lines on top and bottom, the volume buttons are on the left whereas the power button is on its right. Along with a hybrid dual-SIM tray, the bottom is fitted with a USB Type-C port with a speaker grille to its right and a 3.5mm audio jack to its left. It only weighs at 172 grams when we take care of its dimensions, it doesn’t actually feel very heavy,
