The final member of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A series which we know as the A7 (SM-A700) has finally broken cover and was spotted making its way to India. The handset is expected to be a mid-range release, but with better hardware compared to that of the A3 and A5 smartphones.
GSMArena notes that the Samsung Galaxy A7 (SM-A700) showed up on import website Zauba where the phone was listed as en route to India for R&D purposes. The website hasn’t provided any details on the hardware or features, but highlights that the device will cost Rs 18483.
We’re pretty sure Samsung will officially bring the A series to India and you can expect the A7 to retail a tad higher than the said amount. The price clearly shows that the phone is going to be a mid-range one, so it’s safe to assume that it may arrive with an HD AMOLED display and a quad core Snapdragon 400 or the 64-bit 410 processor.
Technical details for the 4.8-inch A3 and 5-inch A5 handsets have already been showcased and we’ve also gotten a good look at the latter through leaked images. All three phones were initially rumored to come with metal designs like the Galaxy Alpha, but a recent report suggested that Samsung might be using a different type of material to save on production cost.
Here’s a quick look at the Samsung Galaxy A5’s key features:
– Android 4.4 KitKat
– 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display
– 16GB storage (expandable)
– Quad core Snapdragon 400/410 processor
– 5MP front camera, 8MP rear snapper
– 2330mAh battery
We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy A7, A5 and A3 smartphone go official over the next several days.
