The Galaxy A series includes four different-sized mid-to-upper-mid range smartphones and it was launched in 2015. In 2017 will be released the successors to A3, A5, A7 and A9, and until now, benchmarks have revealed the specs of the Galaxy A5 (2017) (SM-A520F), while the Galaxy A7 (2017) (SM-A720x) was spotted by GFXBench in the wild.
Before we’ll tell you more about the new Galaxy A7 2017, let’s take a look at the specs of its predecessor. The device was released in December 2015 with a glass and metal design, featuring a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution that resulted in a pixel density of 401ppi, and it was available in two variants of hardware configurations: Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset with an Octa-core (4×1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.0 GHz Cortex-A53) processor backed by an Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB of RAM or an Exynos 5430 chipset with an Octa-core (4×1.8 Cortex-A15 GHz & 4×1.3 Cortex-A7 GHz) processor backed by Mali-T628 MP6 graphics and 2GB of RAM. Samsung has opted for one variant of internal memory of 16GB, but it added a microSD card slot for expansion up to 64GB. On the back of the A7 2016 is located a 13MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and which offers features such as autofocus and LED flash, while the front camera has a resolution of 5MP and an aperture of f/2.2.
