A couple of months back it was rumored that Samsung would soon unveil three new devices based on the company’s Galaxy Alpha. Sure enough it did unveil new devices, but only the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A7, even though it had been rumored multiple times before that Samsung would unveil three devices which will include the A7 as well. Looks like this device is still on the cards as it appears to have sailed through the FCC.
The FCC certification is a required regulatory hurdle that such electronic devices have to jump over before they can begin to be sold in the market. If the certification is any indication it may not be long till Samsung formally announces the Galaxy A7 smartphone.
Documents submitted to the FCC show that this smartphone has a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 615 octacore processor, 2GB RAM, Adreno 405 graphics processor, 16GB onboard storage, a 12 megapixel rear and a 5 megapixel front camera.
It is also revealed that the Galaxy A7 touts 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-FI, A-GPS and NFC. The smartphone comes in at 150mm height and 75mm width. It carries model number SM-A700FD.
Samsung has not yet confirmed when the Galaxy A7 will be formally announced. It is also unclear if any of the major U.S. carriers are going to offer this smartphone.
