Every year Samsung releases a new smartphone in the upper mid-range and lower mid-range smartphone under the Galaxy A series. Looks like Samsung is following the trend as a new smartphone, namely, Galaxy A7 (2017) has spotted on GFXBench.
Coming to the leaked benchmark report, the Galaxy A7 (2017) will bear a model number SM-A720x, as of now. GFXBench almost confirmed the specifications of the smartphone. Let's dive into the leaked specifications of the smartphone.
The Same 1080p Display
As seen on the Galaxy A7 (2016), the Galaxy A7 (2017) will also feature the same 1080p display, which has become absolute for a mid-range smartphone. Also, the report shows that it will arrive a 5.5-inch display, same as its predecessor.
Powered by Exynos Chip
This is a big change as the Galaxy A7 (2016) arrived with a Snapdragon 615 chipset, but according to Galaxy A7 (2017) will feature an Exynos 7870 chip along with support with the same 3GB of RAM. It is still unknown why Samsung is going back to Exynos chip.
Doubled Expandable Storage
The benchmark listing shows that the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) might come with 32GB of internal storage, however, it looks like the expandable storage space might be doubled and can support microSD cards up to 32GB.
Samsung is trying hard to improve their cameras on mid-range smartphones. And, as a result, the previous leaked Galaxy A5 (2017) said to feature 16MP cameras on both front and back. And now, the Galaxy A7 (2017) is also said to feature the same 16MP camera setup both front and back.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
This is interesting. When Samsung announces Galaxy A7 (2017) sometime in January, most of the devices from different vendors will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, but the GFXBench listing shows that Samsung is testing the smartphone with Android Marshmallow on-board.
