No. You aren’t experiencing deja vu! We wrote about spec leaks for the mid-ranged smartphone from Samsung about a month ago, but some of the details weren’t really outlined. For instance, the GeekBench leak said it would be featuring a processor that would clock in at 1.8GHz but failed to mention which of the Exynos SoCs the Korean brand would actually use. Well, it looks like someone has just stumbled onto a few more details about the mid-ranged device from the Korean brand’s A series; all thanks to AnTuTu and here’s what we know so far from both leaks.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) Specifications
- 1.8GHz Exynos 7870 octa-core processor
- 3GB of RAM
- Mali-T830 GPU
- 5.5-inch Full HD Display; 1920×1080 resolution
- 64GB of storage
- 16-megapixel rear camera, LED flash, PDAF
- 16-megapixel front camera
- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
- GPS, AGPS
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
If all the specs here are correct, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) will be confugured similarly to the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime. One major change though is that phones from the A series will typically house a Super AMOLED display and we know that a lot of you winced at the fact that the J7 Prime only had a TFT display. The A7 (2017) is also going to get a huge bump up to its front camera to cater to more towards selfie addicts, since the current iteration of the A7 only has a 5-megapixel camera. We’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see the phone’s official spec sheet, which shouldn’t be too far off. The Galaxy A7 (2016) was announced in December 2015, and if the Korean brand follows announcement schedules to the T then we only have to wait for a little over a month.
