Samsung Galaxy A7 pops up on GFXBench: 5.2" 1080p display, 12 MP camera, and 64-bit Snapdragon
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A7 specs leaked out already, but if the device's listing on the GFXBench database is any indication, they have been slightly off the mark. As a reminder, the A7 is expected to be the biggest member in Samsung's new Alpha line of well-rounded handsets with a more premium design (and price point).
Now that it's been logged into the graphics benchmark system, the A7 is, it turns out, with a more modestly-sized, 5.2" 1080p display, instead of the previously rumored 5.5-incher. Certainly good news for those who prefer their phones relatively compact. The rest goes as follows - a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz, and 2 GB of RAM. Apparently, the phone sports 16 GB of internal memory, of which 12 GB will be user-available, so hopefully Samsung has included a microSD slot this time, unlike what it's offering with the Galaxy Alpha.
We will also get a 12 MP shooter, likely the same excellent one from the Alpha, as well as a souped-up front-facing camera, that is capable of 1080p video recording. As for the final design, price and release date, we hope that the rumor mill will keep turning, and bring us all of those sooner, as the new Samsung design line looks mighty promising.
