Recently, the Samsung Galaxy A3 2nd gen (SM-A310F) and the Samsung Galaxy A5 2nd gen (SM-A5100) received their US FCC certification, which is an indication that the two will soon make their official debut. Now their bigger brother, the SM-A7100 (believed to be the Samsung Galaxy A7 2nd gen), has passed through China’s equivalent of the US FCC (TENAA), which also tells us that Samsung will soon lift the lid on the unannounced device.
Certified by TENAA
The images above were posted on TENAA, which look a lot like what we’ve seen in previous leaked images of the device. Aside from the device’s images, TENAA has also leaked the SM-A7100’s specs. According to the listing, the device features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, which is a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor with an Adreno 405 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It offers 16 GB of internal storage, but, if this isn’t enough, the device also features a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB). Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It supports 4G LTE (Cat. 4), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, USB 2.0, GPS, and NFC connectivity. Keeping the lights on is a 2,600 mAh battery. It measures a mere 6.59 mm-thick and weighs in at 155 g. It runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. As for colour options, TENAA mentions that it will be available in gold, but doesn’t mention any other colour option.
One of the images shows the the Galaxy A7 2nd gen’s home button. According to previous reports, the device’s home button will have an integrated fingerprint scanner, which will support Samsung Pay. Although we can’t confirm this, past reports have claimed that Samsung is planning to include features found in high-end devices on entry-level to mid-range devices.
