There is a couple of news regarding Samsung's Galaxy A series. One involves a possible new A5 and the other is about the A7's FCC certification.
First off, the Galaxy A5.
There are already rumors swirling regarding the 2017 version of the Galaxy A5. This time, however, a video and some photos of the new device have surfaced.
Samsung has yet to officially announce the existence or plans for a new A5 but with the 'accidental' release of the hands-on video; it is almost safe to say that there is indeed a new Galaxy A5 in town or at least in the near future.
The video was leaked by a man by the name of Neil Potgieter. Mr. Potgieter claimed in the video that he was reviewing the 2017 Samsung Galaxy A5. Android Authority does not dismiss the video or particularly the device in it as fake. Instead, it mentions that the phone being reviewed is probably a pre-production prototype.
In the video, the phone in question runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It is likely that by the time the A5 is released next year, it will come with the more recent Android 7.0 Nougat.
Other details that can be gathered from the video and the photos is that it will look similar to the Galaxy S7 and that it will have an octa-core processor under its hood while also having 3GB of RAM.
An official announcement will likely be made this month.
The next bit of Samsung news is that the 2017 Galaxy A7 just received certification from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission or FCC.
With that out of the way, Samsung will likely announce the new Galaxy A7 in the very near future. The Galaxy A7 has already received a Bluetooth certification and has undergone benchmark tests.
According to the tests, the new Samsung device will sport a 5.68-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with an integrated 64-bit 8-core processor with four Cortex-A72 cores under its hood. It also scored a 1.3GHz speed.
