Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) granted Bluetooth certification

As the end of the year approaches, we're getting closer to more and more smartphone reveals. Many companies have decided to save some “spots” between Black Friday and holiday shopping season to launch a few new products that could boost their revenues.

Samsung is one of the companies that are likely to introduce a couple of new smartphones in early December. One of them could the Galaxy A7 (2017), which has just received its Bluetooth certification.

This isn't the first time we here about the Galaxy A7 (2017), also known as Samsung SM-A720F, as the smartphone made the rounds at GFXBench and AnTuTu benchmarks not long ago.

Samsung's mid-range handset is expected to ship with Android Marshmallow onboard. It will sport a more than decent 5.7-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution and a powerful 1.8GHz Exynos 7880 processor.

The listing of the phone at GFXBench also revealed the Galaxy A7 (2017) will pack 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. We can safely assume that Samsung will add microSD card slot for memory expansion, too.

Although it hasn't been confirmed yet, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is said to feature an impressive 16-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 3,300 mAh battery under the hood. Other specs could include fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, water resistance and 4G LTE support.

"Although it hasn't been confirmed yet, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is said to feature an impressive 16-megapixel rear camera." - Cosmin V. Impressive? The 2015 Galaxy A8 already had a 16MP rear camera, though with a 4:3 native aspect ratio. I expect the A7 (2017) to fearure a 16:9 sensor, thought not likely to be all that impressive, since the A7 (2017) isn't flagship, so I guess it's 16MP rear camera will be more like Galaxy S5 tier, or Note 4 tier (assuming the A7 (2017) will feature an OIS). Heck, I'd be suprised if the A7 (2017) 's camera turns out to be Galaxy S6 tier - that'll be indeed impressive! Heck, the Galaxy A8 (2016) launched a few months ago with an S6 tier camera, so it's kinda safe for you to assume that the upcoming A7 (2017)'s camera will be "impressive". It all remains to be seen.. -_-!

The battery is a bit small, but the S6's camera, a 5,7" super AMOLED display and water resistance would be very impressive for a midranger. Looks like it will be a great phone.
