A few months ago, the first signs of the new Galaxy A7 started to show up. First it was on GFXBench and later on AnTuTu listings. While all of this was happening, Samsung also silently imported the new Galaxy A3 into India for testing.
The Galaxy A7 (2017) is expected to run under the SM-A720F model number and it is heavily rumored that it will feature a 5.6-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display. On the front, it will house a whopping 16MP front-facing camera for super detailed selfies. On the back, it will also have a 16MP lens with f/1.9 aperture.
According to rumors, it will run on the Exynos 7880 SoC at 1.8Ghz, paired with 3GB LP-DDR4 RAM and 32GB internal storage. If you want more room you can expand that storage with a microSD card. Also for this model, the 7.8mm body is rumored to be IP68 certified for water and dust resistance.
On the regular things, it will most probably have a fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port. It will feature all regular connectivity options including LTE and dual-band gigabit WiFi.
All of this is expected to power a 3.600mAh battery, and to keep the harmony will be responsible Android 6.0 or Android 7.0.
Still, all of this has to be confirmed officially from Samsung.
