Samsung Galaxy A7 approved for release by FCC

Samsung has yet another mid-range handset on the cards as the Samsung Galaxy A7 passes through the FCC ahead of an imminent release.

With the Korean manufacturer having recently introduced the Samsung Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 – both metal bodied spinoffs to the Galaxy Alpha – it now appears that a larger, 5.2-inch A7 offering is on the way.

Despite the A7 having yet to be formally confirmed, the handset – formally known as the Samsung SM-A700FD – has now been approved for sale by the American regulatory body.

As well as suggesting the handset could be on retailers’ shelves in the near future, the FCC-based leak has offered a detailed look at the device’s specs sheet.

Bestowing the handset’s 5.2-inch screen with a 1080p, Full HD panel, Samsung has fitted the A7 with a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset and 2GB of RAM.

Although far from a Galaxy S5 follow-on, the A7 is no specs slouch adding an Adreno 405 GPU and 16GB of internal storage to the mix.

On the camera front, the Sony Xperia M2 and HTC Desire Eye rival packs a 12-megapixel rear-mounted snapper alongside a secondary, 5-megapixel imaging option up front.

Although there is still no word on exactly when the Galaxy A7 will enter the realms of reality, given the handset’s FCC sign off, we would expect to see it announced in the coming weeks.
