After months of rumours and leaked photos, Samsung officially released the Galaxy A7 yesterday. The handset comes with a 6.3mm metal unibody – the slimmest handset with a metal unibody to this date – dual-SIM functionality, and will be available in dark blue, white, and gold.
Samsung will release two versions of the Galaxy A7: one with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC and one with a 32-bit Exynos 5430 chipset, both with octa-core CPU, so you will be able to choose which fits your needs the best. Both models will come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, which you will be able to expand through a microSD card slot.
As for the rest of the phone’s specs, the Galaxy A7 boasts a 5.5” HD Super AMOLED screen, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front one, and there is a 2,600mAh battery powering the device. The device runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, but you will be able to upgrade it to Android 5.0 Lollipop soon enough.
If you think the A7 is the phone for you, then you’ll be glad to know that that the Korean giant will release it at the end of Q1 2015, at a “competitive price point”.0
