This week is undoubtedly exciting for Samsung lovers as the South Korean company has officially announced its newest handset, the Galaxy A7.
While Samsung’s Galaxy A family is relatively new, that didn’t stop the company from going one step further and making the Galaxy A7 its skinniest device yet, which comes in at 6.3mm thin!
Aside from being so skinny, the Galaxy A7 appears to incorporate the Galaxy A line’s focus which is aimed towards users who prefer a more upmarket look when it comes to smartphones, opting for a metal handset over a plastic one, as well as a more sophisticated design rather than advanced, out of this world specs.
Well, if the thinness of the Galaxy A7 isn’t enough to go by, it also features a metal rim and is pretty light at only 141g. In fact, to look at, the device isn’t too different from the Galaxy A3 and the A5.
However, the specs are a little bit updated with the Galaxy A7, which comes with an octacore processor, which includes 1.8GHz quadcore processors and 1.3GHz quadcore processors.
There will actually be two versions available of the new handset, one with a single SIM and the other is a dual-SIM device. The dual-SIM varient will feature 1.5GHz and 1GHz quadcore processors.
We can also expect a 5.5 inch 1080p AMOLED display as well as 2GB of RAM. When it comes to storage, Samsung is offering 16GB of space as well as a microSD slot for cards up to 64GB, which isn’t too bad! The battery is pretty good also at 2600mAh.
The big question which is undoubtedly on everybody’s lips is whether or not the Galaxy A7 will come with the latest Android Lollipop update, and it seems that the answer is negative, as the devices will appear with Android 4.4 KitKat instead. However, it seems unlikely that the Android 5.0 Lollipop would just be forgotten about completely, so we imagine that it will be available as an upgrade fairly soon.
