When you think of mid-range Samsung-branded Android smartphones, the company’s Galaxy A lineup probably comes to mind, and for a good reason. Samsung had introduced quite a few Galaxy A devices thus far, and a couple of new ones will land soon it seems. The Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2017) have been spotted a couple of times thus far, they’ve been listed on Zauba, and have been leaking out ever since.
That being said, the most powerful handset out of the three, the Galaxy A7, has popped up on GFXBench. Now, according to the listing, the device will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, quite probably a Super AMOLED panel, and will also pack in 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The listing does not reveal if the phone will ship with a microSD card slot, but chances are it will. Anyhow, GFXBench says that this phone will be fueled by an octa-core 64-bit SoC running at 1.8GHz, along with the Mali-T830 GPU. The 16-megapixel camera will be placed on both the back and front side of this smartphone, which basically means this device will come in handy for those of you who live to take nice selfies. The LED flash will be included here, quite probably a dual-LED flash, though we still don’t know if the company plans to include flash on the front side of the device as well. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the Galaxy A7 (2017), and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Samsung’s custom UI, of course.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) will, quite probably, be made out of metal, and its battery will not be removable. Chances are we’ll get a rather familiar design, the phone will, almost certainly, resemble its predecessors, so you can expect the physical home button to make a comeback here, as well as two capacitive buttons on its sides. We still don’t know when will Samsung introduce this handset, but it might arrive soon judging by the leaks that have been popping up recently. Stay tuned, as usual, we’ll report back as soon as we stumble upon new info.
