Just a few days back we told you that the Samsung Galaxy A7 made its debut in Malaysia and now, the company has given the handset a global reveal as well. The official Global Tomorrow blog has everything you need to know about the company’s slimmest smartphone till date even information that was earlier left unannounced.
However, there’s still no availability information on the Samsung Galaxy A7 and neither has the company provided a price. Taking the A3 and A5 as example, the new handset won’t come cheap and rumor has it that the device will be available in limited quantities. We still don’t know why the OEM tool so long to reveal the phone as many reports suggested that it would go official along with the smaller members of the series.
The devices in the Galaxy A series may look like your average Samsung smartphone, but they’re in fact different. These handsets are being touted as premium options as they offer full-metal designs. The A7 is the slimmest in the range being 6.3mm thin and it weighs 141 grams which is pretty good for a 5.5-inch release.
The display used here is a Super AMOLED panel with 1080p visuals and while we already know that the processor employed is the 64-bit octa core Snapdragon 615, the blog post reveals that there will be a model with Samsung’s own Exynos 5430 (SOC) + M7450 (Ericsson modem) based on the previous Cortex A15 and A7 CPU designs.
Here’s a better look at the key Samsung Galaxy A7’s specs:
– Android 4.4 KitKat
– 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p touchscreen
– 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 64GB expandable
– Snapdragon 615, Exynos 5430 + M7450 (chipset varies by market)
– 2600mAh battery
– 5MP front camera, 13MP rear snapper
– 151mm x 76.2mm x 6.3mm, 141g
The Samsung Galaxy A7 could get a limited release, but we’ll only know for sure once the South Korean giant reveals its launch plans.
