Official images showcase Samsung Galaxy A7

Samsung-Galaxy-A7Samsung is preparing a fresh Galaxy A Series smartphone for launch in the spring of 2016, with official images of the device emerging from China this week, according to Android Authority.

The Galaxy A7 (2016) will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors, offering a premium exterior and a solid selection of hardware to allow it to straddle the mid-range and high-end portions of the mobile market. And with a 5.5 inch 1080p display, it will also be an affordable competitor to the iPhone 6S Plus.

With a Snapdragon 615 processor sporting eight physical cores and a healthy 3GB chunk of RAM onboard, the Galaxy A7 2016 will be a solid performer, without quite outdoing Samsung’s flagship handsets.

A 13 megapixel primary camera and five megapixel secondary camera will complete the list of specifications, with observers pointing out that it not only looks a lot like current Galaxy A Series phones, but will also be following them closely in terms of its specifications.

With CES in January and MWC in February or March, there will be plenty of opportunities for Samsung to showcase this stylish, powerful phablet alongside many of its other creations that will launch in 2016.
