Plastic begone, the rumoured Samsung Galaxy A7 might show up in a full metal jacket

This means you'll see less plastic smartphones and more metal-clad Samsung A-series devices very soon
The purported Samsung Galaxy A7 smartphone might be a metal stunner

Loved the metal look on Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A3, and Galaxy A5 smartphones? You’re in luck because the South Korean multi-national conglomerate might have another metal-bodied smartphone on the way.  

Presumably, it’s the Samsung A7, according to sources. They claim the vendor’s put through an application for a new Sammy smartphone on the Federal Communications Commission website, with the model number SM-A700 (hence the presumption it’s the A7).

And the chances are quite high that it’s not just a rumour. There could be some truth to this claim, as Samsung made similar applications just before it took the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 sometime in October.

The application itself does not reveal too much about the device – only some minor details about it were included. But what it does is bring us a step closer to the existence of the handset.

By the looks of what was leaked through the FCC application, the Galaxy A7 will measure 150mm x 75mm, meaning that the alleged device’s screen will measure more than 5in diagonally.

The FCC also confirmed that the device might come out of the box with NFC and LTE capabilities. The source also indicated that the device could pack a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, 12MP back snapper, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory.

We’re hoping more leaks about its design and specs make their way to us in the months leading up to its release. Of course, any hints of its availability and pricing would be a plus too.
