A recent leak has surfaced, showing off an alleged Galaxy A7 (2017). The newest midrange addition in the Alpha series is tipped to be released in early 2017 as it has earned Bluetooth and FCC certifications.
The leaked image was supposedly meant for internal materials, according to GSM Arena. It shows the Galaxy A7 design from the front side - which looks pretty much like a Galaxy S7 but larger. There are two devices in the pictures, the black and gold variants.
The most attractive part of this upcoming iteration would be its IP68 certification. This marks the first A device to feature water-resistant chassis, PhoneArena reported. Galaxy A7 is rumored to sport 16 MP cameras on its front and rear sides. This configuration reminds us of Oppo F1s, the selfie expert.
