Part of Samsung’s Galaxy A series, the A7 doesn’t look too different from the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, though it’s larger than both of them. We initially thought that the A7 would sport a 5.2 inch display, but that isn’t true. The new handset comes with a bigger, 5.5-inch 1080p screen, and measures 150.9 x 75.9 x 6.3 mm - thus being Samsung’s thinnest smartphone ever (just a tad slimmer than the 6.7mm Galaxy A5 and Galaxy Alpha).
China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center seemingly confirms the fact that the Galaxy A7 is powered by a 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. Other features include LTE connectivity, a 13 MP (not 12 MP) rear camera with LED flash, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of non-expandable internal memory, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The Galaxy A7 that’s been approved in China has the model number SM-A7009, and is specifically made for the Chinese market. Samsung should officially announce the new handset pretty soon, so it won’t be long until we find out more about it.
