Back in January, when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7 (2017), this 5.7-inch phablet had Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board. In the meantime, it looks like Samsung chose to upgrade the software, adding Bixby and Samsung Pay support, also moving from Marshmallow to Android Nougat at the same time.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) arrived in South Korea last week with Bixby and Samsung Pay, so there is no doubt that the handset comes with Android Nougat out of the box. Now, this handset surfaced in the US on the website of the WiFi Alliance, and since it received the required certifications, we expect it to hit the local market in the coming weeks.
The Galaxy A7 (2017) comes in black blue, gray, and gold, priced around $510 USD. Its specs include the Exynos 7880 SoC made by Samsung, 3 GB RAM, 16 MP cameras on both sides, a Super AMOLED full HD display, as well as a 3,600 mAh battery.
