Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A (2016) series in December last year so the new lineup is due. We've seen countless rumors and reports about the upcoming Galaxy A lineup. An invite leaked last week suggested that the Galaxy A7 (2017) could be unveiled in the near future. The Galaxy A7 (2017) has now received its Wi-Fi certification which is often considered as an indication that the launch is just around the corner.
The Galaxy A7 (2017) is going to be the premium model of this series. It's expected to be the first non-flagship smartphone from Samsung to feature IP68 water and dust resistance. Specifications might include a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7780 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, 16-megapixel front and rear cameras, a USB Type-C port and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Samsung will offer a rounder design with the new A series handsets this year and even though there were rumors that at least one model could have a dual-edge curved display, that's not going to be the case. The company is going to unveil the entire Galaxy A (2017) series at the same time but it's yet to confirm when that's going to happen.
