Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) hits the FCC with a 3300 mAh battery, narrower chassis


Samsung's second batch of A-series phones may be launched very soon, if the recent barrage of leaks, tips and benchmark database slips is any indication. Most of the 2016 editions of the Galaxy A3, A5, A7 and A8 already appeared in various databases, and we even had some purported new entrants, like a Galaxy A9, make the rumor rounds. 

Today is another turn for the eventual Galaxy A7 (2016) to shine, with a fresh appearance at the FCC certification body. There isn't much else that can be gleaned from the FCC files but the actual dimensions, and, recently, battery capacity, but these were the missing links we hadn't heard about for the Galaxy A7 (2016) anyway.

Apparently, the phone would be slightly narrower, but a tad thicker than the current Galaxy A7, at 151.5 × 73.95 × 6.95mm, and with a weight of 155g. These dimensions imply a 5.5" display again, while the thicker construction may be due to the increased battery capacity - the FCC listing pegs it at 3300 mAh, which is quite the boost from the current 2600 mAh, hinting at a possible two-day battery out of the handset. 

As for the rest of the specs, they were already revealed by the Galaxy A7's appearance over at TENAA, and include a 5.5" 1080p AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 615, 3 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP rear camera. Not bad for a midranger at all, but let's wait and see what price Samsung will slap on this puppy.
