The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) is an Android smartphone produced by Samsung Electronics.[1][2] It was introduced on December 2, 2015, along with Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016), Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016), and Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016)

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop right out-of-the-box and is upgradeable to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow in the coming months.[4] The smartphone features an Exynos 7580 SoC consisting of 8 ARM Cortex-A53 backed by the Mali-T720MP2 GPU and sports 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage, expandable to 128 GB via a MicroSD slot which can also be used for a second Nano-SIM. In China, a version of the phone with Snapdragon 615 was released. The device retains a non-removable battery like its predecessor, rated at 3300 mAh.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is a successor to the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016).


The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) was released in China on December 15, 2015, followed by other countries in the Q1 2016. As of April 2016, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) is now available in Eastern Europe (only Russia, Ukraine and Turkey),[3] Africa, Middle East, Latin America and Asia. It is not available in North America and rest of Europe.

While the predecessor, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2015) had broader availability in Europe, this model was never being sold in Europe because it was being deemed too expensive and also due to near-direct competition against Samsung Galaxy S6.
