Samsung Galaxy A7 visits the FCC, might be announced soon
While Samsung already announced the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 (with the latter - pictured on the left - being available to buy in China), there’s still no official word on the Galaxy A7, which is expected to be the third handset in the company’s brand new Galaxy A series. 

Even so, we know for certain that the A7 exists, as its model number (SM-A700) is featured on Samsung’s official website. What’s more, the A7 recently visited the FCC - which might mean that an announcement is around the corner.

The FCC confirms that the SM-A700 features NFC and LTE, while also revealing its height (150 mm) and width (75 mm). These dimensions support the idea that the new smartphone sports a 5.2-inch display - as previously rumored.

It’s said that the 5.2-inch screen of the Galaxy A7 has a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. Other features reportedly include a 12 MP rear camera, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory. We expect the A7 to have an all-metal design, just like the A3 and A5. What do you think, is this a smartphone to look forward to seeing?

And it will probably cost 600 dollars, knowing Samsung.

Even if it does it will probably be a better bang for you buck than a certain fruit company.

Maybe... but now down to the batt capacity left after all of this info then. Wrong RRP means people will settle for Desire 820's glossy pastic + BoomSound easily.

I have always said that Samsung made a BETTER iPhone than Apple and the Alpha was an example of that. There is an IOS app that is probably the most complicated app ever. Due to its complexities it has not been noticed that in the 2 years (730 days) between the iPhone 5 and 6, the iPhone 6 is a minor tweaked iPhone 5. A larger display and adding the NON phone related Apple Pay. Here is that App I referred to,Apple-iPhone-6,Apple-iPhone-6-Plus/phones/7378,8346,8908 However.... Samsungs mistakes was REMOVE microSD expansion, and with Apple dropping the 32 GB version iPhone the Alpha only challenged the 16GB iPhone 6 / 6+ (With memory expansion the Alpha challenged the 128GB iPhone) [(Why it was not named iphone5SS / 5SS+ beats me] Having said that Samsung said they would streamline the models, NOT so. We have the Alpha (Alpha 2 imo WILL get memory expansion) A3, A5 now the 6.5" A7,Samsung-Galaxy-A3,Samsung-Galaxy-A5/phones/8618,8932,8944 Can any tell the difference of a 4.7" Alpha next to 4.5" A3 side by side? Four “A” models 4.5" A3; 4.7" Alpha; 5.5" A5 and 6.5"A7: Variants (much duplication or similarity) of the same phone ( take a leaf from the Apple 4.7 & 5.5”) The A7 is even bigger than the 5.7" NOTE 4 and massive 5.96” Nexus 6 Apple can be accused of seriously overcharging Samsung is seriously over releasing and if the 165 mm size is correct then that is just 0.5 inches smaller that the original Galaxy Tab 7.0

It wouldn't be a bad deal in the sub $400 range... but if experience tells us anything, they will price it in the $600 range, because metal phones are terribly overrated.

It's beautiful and the specs are just perfect for me. But the price and the battery on that slim profile...

ThePython is right, it should be in $400 range and coming to battery part Sammy phones do fine in that. You can check Alpha's battery.

It looks like a good 64bit mid-ranger .. But then price should also justify its segment otherwise Samsung might not get that much attention to this device !!

Galaxy S4 here costs 300$ and it's really famous as a midrange device, excellent camera and blazing fast .. grand 2 at 230$ .. so it better be priced a bit less than 400 like others said here

Beauty of Android: superfluous phones for superfluous people.

Wow. This might be the most pretentious comment I've ever read. Get over yourself. You're not anymore important than anyone else. Die tomorrow & people will forget you too.

Considering Samsung wants $420 for an A5, this would prolly be $600-700 and even then its still not equipped with a flagship SoC. One can almost buy two Xiaomi Mi4 64GB at that pricing and that is also metal built too and better software for that target market. Samsung: mediocre specs, ugly UI, tons of junkware, outrageous pricing, lousy resale values.

The 615 may not be top of the line, but it's no slouch. It is better than the 800 & 801 in many departments.

Everyone and their mom is going to use the same Qualcomm chips and offer phones at *much* better pricing soon anyway, so what's the point.
