Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)

Just hours after we posted our exclusive story of Samsung’s new affordable Android powered handset – the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017), we have received some details about yet another upcoming Samsung handset. We are talking about the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) edition – which is set to succeed the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) currently being sold in several markets across the globe.  As usual, before we talk about the specifications of the device, let us take a look at the all-important images – thanks to our friend @OnLeaks

Like in the case of the Galaxy A3 (2017), we are still not completely aware of the confirmed spec-sheet that the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) would sport. What we know currently is that design-wise, the Galaxy A7 (2017) would be quite similar to the A3 (2017) with the former being slightly larger in size. The smartphone is 8mm thin, 155mm tall, and 78.14mm wide.

The internals on the A7 would also see an upgrade (obviously) from the current model.  The current generation Samsung Galaxy A7 comes in two variants – one powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chip and the other that uses an Exynos 7580 SoC. This trend is likely to continue with the 2017 edition of the phone as well. From what is currently known, at least one of the versions of the Galaxy A7 (2017) will come with Samsung’s own Exynos 7880 SoC.

Other likely features on the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) include a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. This is slightly larger than the 5.5-inch display on the 2016 version of the phone. The A7 (2017) is also likely to get a 3600 mAh battery – which is larger than the 3,300 mAh capacity on the current model.  The new handset is also slated to come with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB/64 GB storage options with a memory card slot. As for the camera, the phone will come with a 16-megapixel camera at the rear as well as the front. Like the A3 (2017), the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) could also get an USB Type-C port. Another first for an A Series phone would be the presence of a fingerprint scanner. The phone is also likely to be IP68 water and dust resistant.
