Samsung finally made the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 official earlier this month, but the third prong of the all-new A-Team – the Galaxy A7 – was curiously absent. That was particularly disappointing since the higher number denotes a superior phone.
Well, it sounds like the Samsung Galaxy A7 launch won’t be too far off now, with the smartphone getting the obligatory stamp of approval from China’s TENAA, and the headline feature will likely be its ridiculous thinness.
With dimensions of 150.9 x 75.9 x 6.3 mm, the Galaxy A7 is in fact Samsung’s thinnest ever smartphone, an impressive feat considering its size.
Incidentally, at 5.5in, the Samsung Galaxy A7 has the same display size as the iPhone 6 Plus, and even matches the 1080p resolution, all while being shorter, narrower and thinner.
Other Samsung Galaxy A7 specs include a 64-bit octo-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 16GB internal storage, and KitKat Android 4.4.4.
That doesn’t sound too bad for a phone that will (presumably) cost less than the Samsung Galaxy S5, and probably come with a premium metal bod, but there’s always a catch. Here, the lack of microSD for expandable storage threatens to ruin the party, hmm.
With the Samsung Galaxy A7 passing its Chinese exams, expect the phone to launch in a matter of weeks – possibly before Christmas.
