It’s been a couple of months since the Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 launched, and since then we’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of the much-discussed third prong, the Galaxy A7.
It’s expected that the proper Samsung Galaxy A7 launch will go down in South Korea next week, but in the meantime it’s popped up over in Malaysia.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 was one of the worst kept secrets of recent months, and indeed it arrives pretty much as rumoured.
As smartphone tradition dictates (higher number, better specs), the Samsung Galaxy A7 is the new boss of the Galaxy A range, serving as big brother to the modest Galaxy A3 and the slightly better Galaxy A5.
Samsung Galaxy A7 specs include a 5.5in 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 13MP rear camera (it had been rumoured at 12MP, for what it’s worth), 2,600mAh battery, and Android KitKat.
Malaysian site SoyaCincau says the Samsung Galaxy A7 release date is set for February on its home turf, priced around $400 (£265ish to you and me).
