After having been spotted in not one, but two benchmarks already, as well as in the database of an Indian import tracker, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is now Bluetooth certified.
As always in these cases, the revelation comes straight from the Bluetooth SIG itself, and its official documents. The Samsung SM-A720F had its certification published today. While this in itself doesn’t reveal any specs for the device (unless you count it having Bluetooth connectivity as something that couldn’t have been guessed), it does mean that the phone’s announcement is nearing.
Its predecessor, the Galaxy A7 (2016) was launched last December, so it wouldn’t be surprising at all if the A7 (2017) officially surfaced exactly one year later.
The handset is expected to pack a 5.5″ or 5.7″ 1080p touchscreen, a pair of 16 MP cameras (one on the front, one on the back), 3GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of built-in storage, and Samsung’s Exynos 7870 chipset at the helm. A fingerprint scanner should also be in.
