Samsung Galaxy A7 officially announced, features a 6.3mm thin metal unibody and a 64-bit octa-core processor

After being leaked a number of times, the Galaxy A7 has been officially announced by Samsung. The Galaxy A7 (SM-A700) is now the most feature-packed smartphone in the Galaxy A series. Just like the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5, the Galaxy A7 has a metal unibody, and is just 6.3mm thin. It features a 5.5-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, and a 2,600 mAh battery. There’s a 13-megapixel primary camera on the back with autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video recording abilities. The 5-megapixel front-facing camera can be used to click enhanced selfies, thanks to features like Wide Selfie and Beauty Face. Even the rear camera can be used to capture a selfie using the Rear-Cam Selfie feature. The Galaxy A7 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat, but we think that it will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop very soon. Priced at €509, the Galaxy A7 will be available for purchase starting the end of Q1 2015.

The device will be available in two variants; a single-SIM version and a dual-SIM version, both featuring LTE connectivity. The single-SIM variant of the Galaxy A7 uses a 32-bit Exynos 5430 chipset with Ericsson M7450 modem, while the dual-SIM variant uses a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor (MSM8x39). Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, NFC, microUSB v2.0 port, and a headphone jack. The device is rich in terms of sensors as well, featuring an accelerometer sensor, proximity sensor, geo-megnetic sensor, RGB sensor, Hall sensor, and an ambient-light sensor.

Why do they have to always make different processors? I hate this. Let everyone on earth have same experience as others. The camera and speaker arrangement..epic fail

Hey Sammobile, this is an unrelated question. But after the last video of Lolliop for the S4 I9500, there has been radio silence. Any progress on the update? When might it be released? As it was expected to be an early Jan 2015 release, but its almost mid Jan and still no update.

Dude, no one said it is expected in early Jan 2015. January is for the Note 4 and the S5, so I wouldnt expect Lollipop untill they get.

Yes they lost their touch. Why buy a phone that resembles an older phone. They are out of design ideas. Why do you release any latest model phone with KitKat!? And only 2Gb ram And sure it will be updated in a years time. To 5.0. When every one is on 5.xxx.like all previous phones that are still waiting for 5.0. Im saying this because im pissd at forking out on flagship phones. That they don’t get supported properly.

True. You need to release phones on the latest platform, Samsung!

I suspect they are just testing metal designs to prepare for the S6, which should be metal. However, they need to find a better speaker orientation. The speaker and flash make it look like the S3.

A7 isn’t ugly. But it have the same design language (since 2012).

I wanna a different S6. Not just redesigned.
