In what looked like a shocking revelation, it emerged that Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 is set to be launched with a feature that is usually reserved for the high-end models.
According to reports, Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 will come with IP68 dust and water resistance – the same IP certification rating that is found in the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Even though this was just a mere rumor, there is more to confirm that indeed this phone is coming very soon.
Those looking forward to a new Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 can rejoice in the fact that latest reports show that it has received Bluetooth certification. Usually, after a phone receives this certification, it is just weeks away from being made official, possibly early December.
Of course, the Bluetooth certification document speaks little about the said Samsung Galaxy A7 2017, but according to other reports, the midranger will come with a decent amount of specs. For starters, a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen is expected to feature on the phone, however, there is no QHD resolution, instead, the phone will continue the company’s use of Full HD resolution on non-flagship models.
As for the specs under the hood, the Galaxy A7 2017 is rumored to come with an Exynos 7880 octa-core processor that is clocked at a speed of 1.8GHz and is paired with a RAM of 3GB. There will be 32GB of onboard storage that is also expandable via a microSD card alongside dual-SIM support. Despite the presence of Android Nougat in the market, the Galaxy A7 2017 will still come with Android Marshmallow out of the box. However, the phone should see an update to Nougat somewhere in 2017.
The back of the phone will reportedly feature a 16MP snapper, similar to what will also feature on the front panel. A battery unit of 3300mAh will power the phone, with another surprise being the addition of Samsung’s adaptive fast charging.
