The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) has been spotted on GFXBench. The listing reveals several of the device’s key specifications, including octa-core 1.8GHz CPU, 5.5-inch full HD display, 3GB/32GB memory configuration, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
However, the selling point of the handset, as revealed by the listing, seems to be the 16MP front camera unit (the rear unit is 16MP as well). While it’s entirely possible for benchmarks to get things wrong, we’ve rarely seen that happening with camera megapixels, especially on GFXBench.
So, assuming that the Galaxy A7 (2017) does feature a 16MP front camera, it’s a solid upgrade from the 5MP unit that the Galaxy A7 (2016) comes with. Sadly, pricing and availability information for the device (as well as other 2017-edition Galaxy A series phones) isn’t known at the moment.
The Galaxy A7 2017 comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. On the camera front, it has 16-megapixel camera setup on both back as well on the front panel. The rear camera comes with auto-focus, face detection, and LED flash light. Besides, the smartphone offers Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, WiFi, Accelerometer, Barometer, Digital compass, Gyroscope, Light sensor, Pedometer, and Proximity sensor.
The Galaxy A7 2017 is also expected to have fingerprint sensor like its predecessor.
To recall, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) was launched in India in the month of February for Rs 33,400. It has 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display with full high definition resolution, an octa core processor, 128 GB micro SD card slot, 16 GB of internal memory, 3GB of RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera and a 3300 mAh battery. It also comes with fingerprint sensor and offers 4G connectivity.
