Samsung only recently came up with the 2016 edition of the Samsung Galaxy A7.
Now, the 2017 edition has just been spotted on GFXBench. Most of the specs on the tests reveal a surefire winner on the hands of Samsung. For starters, it is expected to come with a 5.5-inch screen offering no more than 1080p resolution. While there are several smartphones that can go beyond this specification, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is likely to benefit in terms of battery life and other aspects. Expected to be one of the first mid-range devices to ship with Android Nougat, the highlight of the phone could be its camera.
The tests revealed that the phone is likely to have a 16 megapixel the camera. It may not be anything out of the box since several Samsung phones have offered this aspect. However, the phone provides a major shakeup in terms of the front camera, which is expected to be of a similar strength. The use of a 16-megapixel camera in the front is not common and this could be the major selling point of the device. If it does have the 16-megapixel front camera, then it would be a major upgrade over the 2016 edition that offered only a five-megapixel camera.
It seems that the phone will come with a Exynos processor since it reportedly uses Mali GPUs. Samsung has had several combinations of Mali GPUs with the Exynos processor and it has been extremely successful. The processor seems to be rated at a very healthy 1.8 GHz in terms of clock speed and it has eight cores. There will be no shortage of power if this turns out to be true. RAM is also set at a decent 3 GB, although the rather feature heavy TouchWiz user interface could spoil the fun in this department.
The 16 GB memory option is fast becoming obsolete the world of smartphones and the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) could make this true in the case of mid-range devices. The phone is set to come with 32 GB of memory as standard, which would be a major positive especially considering that it is also likely to support memory expansion via cards. Unfortunately, pricing and other details of the phone were not revealed. Considering that the 2016 edition came out in December, we may not be long away from the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017).
