The rumoured Galaxy A7 smartphone have passes through TENNA certification in China. The smartphone has been listed as the Samsung SM-A7009. The alleged Samsung Galaxy A7 seems no different from the recently launched metal-clad Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 smartphones in terms of design. The Galaxy A7 version that appeared on TENAA is made for the Chinese market. An international model is also expected. A7 is the part of Samsung’s brand new Galaxy A series, which also include A5 and A3 that has yet to make an appearance.
The Tenaa certification lists thickness of just 6.3mm for the SM-A7009, making it the slimmest smartphone ever made by Samsung. The specifications of Samsung SM-A7009 have been leaked through GFXBench and FCC.
According to the TENNA listing, SM-A7009 includes a 5.5-inch full-HD display with 1080×1920 pixels resolution; a 64-bit 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor; 2GB of RAM; 16GB of built-in storage, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat. It will most probably be equipped with a 12-megapixel primary camera with 1080p video recording and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. The FCC has confirmed that the Galaxy A7 (SM-A700FD) features 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, and A-GPS.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 had appeared on the company’s Chinese website last month. A Netherlands-based device retailer GSMWijzere claimed that the two devices – Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 – might be in stock by January, and could be priced at EUR 310 (approximately Rs. 23,700) and EUR 410 (approximately Rs. 31,300) respectively.
Samsung has revealed the pricing of Galaxy A5 in China at CNY 2,599 While Samsung China website is guiding consumers to visit a nearby store for purchasing, a recent report citing an unknown Samsung official suggested that Samsung has again delayed the launch of Galaxy A5 to mid-December, due to production issues.
