Samsung releases quite a few devices a year, and has quite a few ‘Galaxy’ sub-brands currently available in the market. The ‘Galaxy A’ line of devices is the company’s mid-range sub-brand which was released last year. There are a couple of ‘Galaxy A’ handsets available out there at the moment, and it seems like Samsung will launch 2nd-gen Galaxy A devices soon. The Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 have been popping up all over the place, and all three of these phones were listed on GFXBench recently, while Galaxy A3 and A5 have also popped up on Zauba.
Well, another Galaxy A7 (2015) listing has popped up, this time the phone appeared in a Bluetooth SIG database. The model number that was listed is ‘SM-A710’, and it seems like a number of variants were certified. The Samsung SM-A710L, SM-A710K, SM-A710S, SM-A710X, and SM-A710F/DS were all listed in Bluetooth SIG’s database. Now, specs haven’t been listed in this database, but thanks to GFXBench listing which popped up a couple of days ago, we have a pretty good idea what will Galaxy A7’s specs look like.
According to GFXBench’s listing, the device will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz will fuel this smartphone along with an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel camera will be located on the back of the device, and a 5-megapixel shooter will be available up front. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed here with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI available on top of it.
Keep in mind that several leaks reported that the screen might be bigger than 5.5-inches, so the Galaxy A7 might even sport a 5.7-inch+ display. On top of all this, you can expect this smartphone to be made out of metal (at least partially), and its battery almost certainly won’t be removable. That is pretty much it, the 2nd-gen Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 handsets are expected to be announced in the coming months, and Samsung quite probably won’t announce them at the same time, but we’ll see. Either way, stay tuned for additional info, we’ll keep you posted.
