Galaxy A7 (2017) receives Bluetooth certification


Last updated: November 18th, 2016 at 21:42 UTC+01:00

It was only three months ago that we exclusively reported that Samsung was working on refreshed models of the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 for its 2017 lineup, and now the latter has been granted its Bluetooth certification credentials, which means the only remaining pitstop it has to make before it can hit the shelves is the FCC.

Recent AnTuTu and GFXBench listings point towards the Galaxy A7 (2017) packing a 5.7-inch Full HD display, a 1.8GHz Exynos 7880 System-on-Chip (SoC), 3GB of LP-DDR4 RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, a 16-megapixel front- and rear-facing camera and a 3,300mAh battery. It’s also expected to sport a fingerprint scanner, LTE connectivity and a USB Type-C port.

It’s worth noting, however, that none of this information has been confirmed at this precise moment in time, so it should all be taken with a pinch of salt. Fortunately, at the rate Samsung’s 2017 iterations of the Galaxy A range are passing through testing facilities, it shouldn’t be too much longer until they’re announced. We’re hoping for a mid-December unveiling.

Could the Galaxy A7 (2017) be getting its Android Pie update soon?

There was little hope for the Galaxy A7 (2017) Android Pie update. That’s because this device has already received two major OS updates since it was launched with Marshmallow out of the box. It got Android 7.0 Nougat in 2017 and Android 8.0 Oreo in 2018. That should have been it but there’s something which […]
