Description

The Samsug Galaxy A7 (2016) comes with a 5.5" Super AMOLED 1080p display. It is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, clocked at 1.6 GHz and 3 GB of RAM. A 13 MP/5 MP camera duo will take photos, and the phone's main camera unit has now been equipped with optical image stabilization. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) gets a generous 3300 mAh juicer. The phone is slightly thicker now, perhaps to accommodate the bigger battery, and a tad heavier than before.
