Based on the benchmark leaks so far, the Galaxy A7 (2017) is expected to be powered by Samsung’s in-house developed Exynos 7870 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz, with the ARM Mali-T830 GPU. In terms of memory, the smartphone will be equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in memory. A microSD card slot is likely to be included, so you should be able to expand the storage further by up to 200GB later on. As for the display, GFXBench listing hinted at a 5.5” 1080p display, while some other reports claim the smartphone will feature a larger 5.7-inch display with Full HD resolution.
In the camera department, Samsung’s Galaxy A7 (2017) will be a significant upgrade over the 2016 version. The rear camera will be upgraded from the current 13MP to 16MP, while the selfie camera will be upgraded from the current 5MP to 16MP. Even though there are a number of selfie-focused Android smartphones on the market, very few offer a 16MP or higher resolution camera on the front. So if you are a selfie lover, the Galaxy A7 (2017) should be able to catch your attention.
But if you live in Europe, you may be out of luck, as a report published last month claimed that Samsung will not be bringing the Galaxy A7 (2017) to the European market. That’s not really surprising though, as the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) wasn’t launched in Europe either.
In terms of design, the Galaxy A7 (2017) is expected to be largely similar to its predecessor, with the fingerprint scanner embedded inside the physical home button on the front.
