Samsung Galaxy A7 Coming Without LTE? FCC Seems To Suggest So
With 2015 almost with us, Samsung is reportedly planning several overhauls to its device lineup. From targeting mid-range devices to introducing new devices, the manufacturer seems to have big plans for next year. One of Samsung devices expected to be with us soon is the Samsung Galaxy A7. The Samsung Galaxy A7 has popped up quite a few times these days and today we've gotten a chance to learn more about the device.
Previously, the Samsung Galaxy A7 has been rumored to come featuring a full-HD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. This is to be powered by 1.5 GHz ARM v8 CPU that will lend the device 64 bit capability and therefore end up adding greater support for Android Lollipop. The device is also expected to come featuring dual-SIM capability, something which should interest those with more than one device on their hands presently.
Well, the most recent sighting of the Galaxy A7 on the FCC has some disappointing news in store for all of us. The device has been spotted at the FCC with model number SM-A700H and, no LTE support present on board. A previous filing on the FCC indicating that the device might be coming with a 5.2 inch screen, with rumors pointing towards 5.5 inches.
No LTE support on the Galaxy A7 could have a major impact on how the device is received by the market since LTE connectivity is something which a lot of users prefer owing to high-speeds and easy accessibility. What could have prompted Samsung to make such a decision remains unknown. Perhaps its a part of the company's strategy to target the mid-level market segment next year, and eliminating LTE on the Galaxy A7 will help drive down costs. We'll keep you updated as this develops.
