Galaxy A7 (2017) passes through the FCC
An unannounced smartphone with Galaxy branding has been spotted at the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. Unfortunately, the documentation included in the filing doesn’t reveal anything about the handset, other than it carries the model number SM-A720F, which leads us to believe that we’re looking at the long-rumored Galaxy A7 (2017).
Recent benchmark listings point towards the handset 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, though that’s all unconfirmed.
If you’ve been following SamMobile over the course of the past few of months, you’re probably aware that the handset has already been imported into India for testing and has been granted its Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification credentials — alongside the Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy A5 (2017) — which means that it’s now passed all of the tests required before it can launch on the open market.
