Yesterday we were saying that the Samsung Galaxy A5 was set to launch shortly in South Korea, as Sammo renews its focus on the low- and mid-range sector.
The third prong to the Galaxy A assault has been a long time coming, but we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy A7 is also due to arrive in South Korea in a couple of weeks, specifically January 14.
This ties in quite nicely with yesterday’s story, when we heard that the Galaxy A5 – already available in China and Taiwan – will get a serious push in South Korea, with decent specs and a competitive price.
Indeed, the spanking new Galaxy A7 will reportedly launch alongside the Galaxy A5 in South Korea, just a couple of weeks into 2015.
Samsung Galaxy A7 vs. Samsung Galaxy A5
As is often the case in smartphone land, the higher number denotes a phone with fancier specs. The Samsung Galaxy A3 is the entry-level chap, while the Galaxy A7 is the big daddy of the range.
Samsung Galaxy A5 specs include a 5.5in 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 13MP/5MP cameras, and a 2,300mAh battery.
The slightly more impressive Samsung Galaxy A7 has a 5.5in 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor (maybe), and 2,500mAh battery. At 6.3mm, it'll be Samsung's thinnest ever smartphone.
Shared specs include the 16GB of expandable storage, 2GB of RAM, 13MP/5MP cameras, and KitKat Android 4.4 (presumably Lollipop 5.0 will follow shortly).
It’s not yet clear if the Samsung Galaxy A7 will see a wider release, but Samsung could definitely use some big players further down the spec ladder - not just in Korea, but globally.
