Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 Leaked Specs: Camera Better Than Galaxy S7?
Leaks about the 2017 model Samsung Galaxy A7 suggest that it could have powerful specs that may even match the Galaxy S7.
The 2017 model of the Samsung Galaxy A7 reportedly surfaced on GFXBench, giving consumers an idea on how powerful or not the upcoming smartphone may be when compared to mainstream top of the line handsets from the same company.
Based from the Benchmark results, the Galaxy A7 will be powered by an Octacore 1.8 GHz Cortext A53 chipset. The result also states that the handset will have a powerful ARM Mali-T830 GPU with OpenGL ES 3.1 capability.
The device will also have 3GB RAM and an internal storage of 24 GB, which is likely to have support for an microSD card expansions. This has been the case with previous Galaxy smartphones from Samsung and it would be safe to assume that the same feature will be included with the newer models.
What really stood out in the specs was the camera capability. It is supposed to have 16-megapixel camera on both the rear and front camera. There's no telling if both of the camera will have the same functionality, sensor size and focusing capability, but either figures stands better than Samsung's flagship Galaxy S7.
One minor let down is the lack of 4K video recording because it was never mentioned that it will have the feature. The cameras will only be able to record full HD footages of 1080p.
The battery capacity wasn't shown at all, but rumor has it that it may have improved over the former 2016 release of the Galaxy A7. The handset is also expected to be released with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
There are no figures or dates yet regarding the official release or reveal of the Samsung Galaxy A7, but theories indicate that the phone will be launched next year along with the Galaxy A5 2017 revision. Prices may range around $450, which was the case with the prior model.
