We’ve been talking about the Samsung Galaxy A7 for months, and while we all knew it was coming, the phone was conspicuously absent as the South Koreans launched the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5, and more recently the Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7.
But the wait is finally over, as Samsung has detailed the Galaxy A7 in all its glory. In short: it’s as good as these Galaxy A (and Galaxy E) phones get.
Unsurprisingly, given the multitude of largely concurrent Samsung Galaxy A7 leaks, the phone arrives almost entirely as expected.
Samsung Galaxy A7 specs include a 5.5in 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, LTE Cat 4 compatibility, a 2,600mAh battery and KitKat Android 4.4, all wrapped up in the thinnest metal unibody on the market (6.3mm).
The Samsung Galaxy A7’s processor is officially listed as the 2x quad-core (yep, octo-core) Exynos 5430. Last week we were told it was the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, but we expect that’ll be market dependant, in typical Samsung fashion.
Other Samsung Galaxy A7 features include Ultra Wide Shot and Auto Selfie for the front camera (take a selfie using voice or by waving your hand), Always Clear Voice Auto Control noise reduction (slick name!), Private Mode, and Multi Screen app function.
There’s no official mention of a UK release for the Samsung Galaxy A7, but we’ll ask around and see what we can find out.
