The Galaxy A7 (2017) might not be released in Europe

We exclusively reported a few months back that Samsung is working on the 2017 iteration of the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7. The company is yet to confirm when these handsets will be released but we've heard a lot of rumors about them over the past couple of weeks. A new report suggests that the Galaxy A7 (2017) may not be released in Europe. That really won't be too surprising when you consider the fact that the Galaxy A7 (2016) wasn't released in Europe as well.

When the original Galaxy A series was launched back in 2015 all three models made their way to Europe. Things changed with the 2016 iteration when Samsung decided to limit it to the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 in Europe. From the looks of it the company is going to take a similar step for the 2017 iteration as well.

A list on Samsung Austria's official website mentions the devices that the Gear S3 is compatible with. The list includes the Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy A5 (2017) but not the Galaxy A7 (2017). This goes to show that there's a possibility that the top-of-the-line version might not be released in Europe. That's because Austria almost always gets all devices that are meant for a wider release across the continent.

The Galaxy A7 (2017) is expected to feature a Samsung Exynos 7870 processor with 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage. It's also said to have a 16-megapixel camera on the front aside from a 5.5-cinh full HD Super AMOLED display.

Samsung is yet to confirm when the 2017 iteration of the Galaxy A series will be released.
