Samsung’s Galaxy A-series smartphone line is thought to have no less than three members in the birthing canal, with the triplets tentatively named Galaxy A3, A5 and A7.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 has been the most elusive of the trio (the A3 and A5 recently popped up in video format), but here we’re seeing its specs detailed in full thanks to a GFXBench graphical performance type thingamajig. The upshot? It sounds pretty impressive.
As per smartphone tradition, the higher number denotes the more powerful phone, so the Samsung Galaxy A7 is the mostly beastly of the three.
For starters, Samsung Galaxy A7 specs include a 5.2in 1080p display, so we’re immediately in Galaxy S5 territory – in terms of size, at least. The Galaxy A7 is a little bit bigger, but with the same resolution.
Down in the engine room, the phone’s powered by an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, with 2GB of RAM. A Snapdragon 810 chipset with 3GB of RAM would’ve screamed “FLAGSHIP!”, but we’re sure the Samsung Galaxy A7 will be more than capable.
Rounding off the Samsung Galaxy A7 spec sheet, we have 16GB internal storage (12GB user accessible), a 12MP rear camera, and KitKat Android 4.4.4. Presumably it'll have some metal trim, too, these phones being the "evolution of Galaxy design".
We’ve been talking about the Galaxy A-series for a while now, so we imagine these guys will become a reality sooner rather than later.
