Galaxy A7 (2017) could launch soon as event invite leaks
It’s December, and it was around the same time last year that Samsung made its Galaxy A (2016) smartphones official. We have been expecting the 2017 editions to make an official appearance thanks to the number of leaks that have cropped up in recent weeks, and it looks like the Galaxy A7 (2017) could be unveiled very soon. The invite for the phone’s unveiling in Iran has surfaced online, revealing that the phone looks very similar to the Galaxy S7, with only a slight difference in the shape of the home button.
The Galaxy A7 (2017) is expected to be the first non-flagship Samsung phone to feature IP68 water and dust resistance, in addition to having a USB Type-C port (which should also be present on the A3 and A5 2017). Other specs could include a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 16-megapixel rear and front cameras, the Exynos 7780 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage. It should be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and the Nougat update should follow in the coming months along with the update for the 2016 Galaxy A smartphones.
Nothing is confirmed at this point, but the invite suggests it won’t be long before we get all the official details on the Galaxy A7 (2017) and its smaller siblings.
