The all-metal Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 are very much a reality, but we’re still waiting patiently for the third prong of the ‘A’ assault, namely the A7.
The higher number means we’re looking at sexier internals, and indeed this latest Samsung Galaxy A7 spec rumour suggests the phone could rock the same processor as the beastly Galaxy Note 4 phablet. Interesting.
We’re perusing an article on SamMobile, appropriately titled: These are the specs of the Samsung Galaxy A7.
Most of the specs gel with what we heard last week, when the Samsung Galaxy A7 passed its Chinese TENAA certification exams, including a 5.5in 1080p display, 13MP and 5MP cameras, 16GB internal storage, 2GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity.
SamMobile adds that Samsung Galaxy A7 specs will include a 2,600mAh battery, with the phone weighing an entirely reasonable 150g. Again, a thickness of 6.3mm makes this Samsung’s thinnest ever smartphone.
The big talking point, however, is the mention of an Exynos 5433 chipset – same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, with 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A57 cores for the heavy lifting, and 4x 1.3GHz Cortex-A53.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 had been rumoured to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615. It’s not clear if the Exynos 5433 might power regional variants only.
In any case, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is shaping up to be an interesting prospect. Priced right (i.e. somewhere south of the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4), this thing could sell a fair few units.
