Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) spotted at China's TENAA
As another week passes, it’s time again for more digital dreams to pass through China’s TENAA. This time we are greeted with another look at the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016), said device having leaked a short while ago.
The device, which goes by the model number SM-7100, looks oddly reminiscent of last year’s Galaxy Alpha, though some have also said it looks similar to this year’s Galaxy S6. It is still unclear as to just what the rear material is made out of: some have reported aluminum (metal) though it often looks reflective and thus glass-like in most photos.
Here as well, looking at the way the back surface reflects light along the perimeter would further lend support to the belief it’s another “glass sandwich.”
The Galaxy A7 (2016) as detailed by the TENAA contains a 5.5-inch Full HD SAMOLED display, an Octa-Core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, and supports microSD. It is to run Android 5.1.1 out of the box and, while no information was listed, is believed to have a battery around 2600mAh or larger.
The device supports Cat. 4 LTE, and includes NFC as well. It measures 151.5 × 73.95 × 6.95 mm and weights 155 grams.
Please note that while Samsung itself has yet to formally unveil this device, it is expected to be launched imminently, at least in Asia or China specifically. As is often the case, the specs may be altered for global markets; for example an Exynos SoC may ultimately be substituted in Korea, or other territories.
