Samsung is tight-lipped on its upcoming device, the Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen), successor to the Galaxy A7 (2015) but it is expected to be released very soon.

The release date of Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen) appears to be drawing close as it has been cleared by Bluetooth SIG, Chinese telecommunications governing bodies TENAA, and now Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It would come as a surprise if the device is unveiled before the end of this year or early 2016.

According to reports and leaks that have surfaced so far, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen) will come with several feature upgrades over its predecessor that was released earlier this year.

The upcoming device is expected to sport a 5.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 1080 pixels, measure 151.8mm long and 74.5mm wide, and support 4G, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Under the hood, the device is expected to have Exynos 7 series Octa-core processor that clocks at 1.7 GHz, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 16 GB internal memory expandable via microSD card, 3 GB RAM, 13 MP main camera, 5 MP secondary snapper and 3,300 mAh battery.

However, it may be noted that specifications and other details of the device are not confirmed yet.
