When talking about the Samsung Galaxy A7, it seems that this would be the last member of the metal clad Galaxy Alpha family which is slowly making its way to the United States. Briefly sighted at the FCC is a filing for a certain SM-A700H, to be called as the Samsung Galaxy A7 with no LTE on board.
This is the second time we got the glimpse of the upcoming metal-clad smartphone by Samsung going through the FCC. With this particular model apparently only supports GSM and W-CDMA networks, with no mention of any 4G LTE support. But the usual 3G with WiFi versus 4G LTE distinction is usually reserved for tablets.
It’s filing insisted on a 5.2-inch screen while the strongest rumors are pointing to a 5.5-inch panel. The Chinese model of the Galaxy A7, to be specific the SM-A7009, seen at TENAA last week, definitely pointed out LTE capabilities, albeit for China’s networks.
The Galaxy A7 (SM-A7009) in the US considering this smartphone should obviously disclosed by the TENAA filing, sports a 5.5″ Full HD screen, 1.5GHz Octa-Core processor, paired with 2GB of RAM and the internal storage goes with 16GB. No idea whether this Samsung A7 packs an external microSD card slot, and the FCC filing definitely holds no clues as though.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 is expected to hit the stores around the world (the U.S. seems a lock) with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, 64-bit Qualconn Snapdragon 615 chipset and sports a 12MP camera on its back and more to be unwrapped soon.
