Samsung Galaxy A7 finally comes out of hiding, officially debuts in Malaysia

While Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy Grand Max in South Korean, it has also taken the wraps off the highly anticipated Galaxy A7 in Malaysia. The device is the third addition to the premium A series lineup and it has been extensively leaked over the past few months.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 wasn’t reveled along with the A3 and A5 back in October and rumor has it that the device will end up being a limited edition release. However, that is yet to be confirmed by the OEM. The phone is everything it was rumored to be – A 6.3mm thin handset with a full metal design.

The Samsung phone flaunts a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display of 1920 x 1080p resolution. And unlike its smaller siblings which come with Snapdragon 410 SOCs, this one carries the beefier octa core Snapdragon 615 chipset with 64-bit support.
