Sometime in the middle of November, rumours claimed that Samsung’s Galaxy A7 smartphone which is due to unveil in the first quarter of next year will come with IP68 certification, thereby giving users the impression that the smartphone device would be highly resistant to dust and water.
Following that, the South Korean tech giants just recently hinted that there might be an iota of truth to that story after all. The company couldn’t have been taken less seriously after teasing a water resistance feature for its next generation of devices in the upcoming Galaxy A Series smartphones – set to be launched at CES 2017.
It was also reportedly discovered that Samsung went as far as adding some water droplets into an image posted by the company on its twitter account, only making it clear to users that they are not into gimmicks after all. Nevertheless, it is still quite unclear which of these Galaxy A series smartphone are likely to get the water resistance.
In regards with one of the upcoming flagship’s specifications, the Galaxy A7(2017) – is expected to bear a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, making it a bit larger than its predecessor. Powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 7880 processor the smartphone device is also expected to be coupled with 3GB of RAM speed and 32GB internal storage, which will be expandable through a microSD card.
From what we know so far, the new Galaxy A Series smartphone devices are expected to be launched by the company at its CES 2017 event in the first quarter of next year. As for rumours regarding other models in the series, we will just have to wait for until an official announcement is being made by the company.
