The Galaxy A7 has been rumored and leaked for some time now. We all knew this device was coming, yet it went unreleased while its A3 and A5 counterparts have already hit the sales floor. Today, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A7 (SM-A700). The A7 continues the trend of being slim and sleek and that comes in at 6.3 mm thick. To give you a perspective, the Galaxy A5 is 6.7 mm thick and the Galaxy S5 is 8.1 mm thick.
The Galaxy A7 is definitely the best so far in the ‘A’ series, mainly because it features an HD 5.5 inch AMOLED display, which is backed by 2 GB of RAM and either a Exynos 5430 or Snapdragon 615 processors. Both of those have 64-bit architecture so they are “future-proof”. The device will ship out with Android 4.4 KitKat, but will soon be picking up Android 5.0 Lollipop according to SamMobile. The device will be priced at around $600 USD and will be available later in Q1.
