Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about the yet to be announced successors of the Samsung Galaxy A3, the Samsung Galaxy A5, and the Samsung Galaxy A7. We’ve seen leaked images and benchmark listings. Now, one of the devices has just gotten certification from Bluetooth SIG, specifically the successor of the Galaxy A7.
Samsung Galaxy A7 2nd gen gets Bluetooth SIG certification
According to the Bluetooth SIG listing several versions of the Samsung Galaxy A7 2nd gen have been certified. Their model numbers are SM-A710F/DS, SM-A710L, SM-A710K, SM-A710X, and SM-A710S. So why the different model numbers? We’re guessing these are model numbers specific to their respective market or designated carrier.
So why is certification from Bluetooth SIG significant? Although it is yet to be determined when Samsung plans to lift the lid on the Galaxy A7 2nd gen, this coupled with leaked images of the device and leaked benchmark test results all points to an imminent announcement of the device.
So far, we’ve learned from leaks that the Samsung Galaxy A7 2nd gen will feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Under the hood is Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit 1.5 GHz octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It will feature 16 GB of internal storage. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. In terms of design, leaked images of the device reveal a smartphone that borrows the design language of the Samsung Galaxy S6. According to past reports, Samsung is planning to include high-end features in its mid- to low-end devices. This suggests that the Galaxy A7 2nd gen will comes with Samsung Pay pre-installed, since it does look as if its home key comes with a fingerprint scanner.
