While the hype about Galaxy S8 is still going on, Samsung Mobile Nepal has taken the wrap off the Galaxy A7 2017. The mid-range smartphone is priced at Rs. 54,900 in Nepal. The mid-range smartphone can be purchased from any authorized retailers located across Nepal, whereas as a part of the launch offer, the company will be gifting 10400mAh Anker powerbank and 32GB microSD card for free on each purchase.
As for the specs, the A7 2017 comes sports a 5.7-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 4 both on the front and the back. The 3D glass back of the phone offers appealing looks alongside an assurance for those users with clumsy hand, thanks to a slight curve on the back and an IP68 certification, meaning the phone is water and dust resistant. Underneath the hood, the smartphone is powered by 1.9GHz Exynos 7880 octa-core processor. Memory wise, the phone is backed up by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with an option for microSD card slot.
Shifting focus to the imaging department, the Galaxy A7 2017 boasts a 16MP primary camera at the back with f/1.9 aperture rate, autofocus, and LED flash, while selfies are taken care by another impressive 16MP front camera with similar aperture rate.
Other noticeable features include an Always On display which resembles Samsung’s superior Galaxy series and a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button. The whole phone boots on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of Samsung’s new Grace UX, although there is no word from Samsung about the future OS updates. Connectivity option of the phone includes 4G support, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, NFC, FM-Radio, and USB Type-C port for data exchanging. The phone packs a modest 3600mAh battery with Fast Charging support.
The new Galaxy A7 2017 is aggressively priced to go head to head against some of the best from the market, including its own Galaxy C9 Pro. However, only time will tell about it.
