Rumors of Sony launching a successor to the NEX-7 have been floating about for a while now, although it was just yesterday that we heard that a possible successor to the camera would be known as the Sony A7000 which seems to be keeping in line with Sony’s naming scheme, especially in the way of Sony dropping the “NEX” moniker.
That being said, the folks at Sony Alpha Rumors have recently gotten a tip from a source who claims to know some of the specs of the alleged Sony A7000 camera. For starters, the A7000 is rumored to feature a 256 phase detect system with 125 contrast detect points. It will borrow the NEX-6’s viewfinder, feature Tri Nav, a touchscreen display, and a sensor that has been engineered for high sensitivity.

Word on the street has it that Samsung is working on more devices similar to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, which is to say that these handsets will feature more of a metal build as opposed to a plastic one. One of these devices in question is the rumored Samsung A7 and thanks to the User Agent Profile spotted on Samsung’s website, some of the specs of the handset have been confirmed.
According to the User Agent Profile, the Samsung A7 will sport a Full HD display as well as an ARMv8-A CPU of the 64-bit variety. Unfortunately apart from the confirmation of the handset’s display resolution and its processor, not much else was revealed in the process, like its screen size, storage options, camera, battery size, RAM, and so on.
