Samsung Galaxy A7, Galaxy Grand Max leak out

Samsung Galaxy A7, Galaxy Grand Max leak out
The Galaxy A7, the exciting new upper mid-ranger by Samsung, is indeed real and coming soon boasting a razor thin profile, an alluring metallic body with sleek design, and powerful internals. The latest leak shows the device in its official, finalized appearance in a leaflet where all the Samsung Galaxy A7 specs are listed alongside. Next to it, we find another upcoming new handset: the more affordable Samsung Galaxy Grand Max.

First, let’s look at the Galaxy A7. We have seen three model names: SM-A700S, SM-A700K, and SM-A700L. The leaflet also reveals the following specifications:

  • OS: Android 4.4.4 KitKat on board
  • Dimensions: Just 6.3mm thin and 140 grams heavy
  • Screen: 5.13" 1080 x 1920-pixel (Full HD) Super AMOLED display
  • System chip: 1.5GHz octa-core processor (likely a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615)
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 16GB internal storage with microSD card slot
  • Cameras: 13-megapixel main camera, 5MP front cam
  • Battery: 2,500 mAh
  • Connectivity: LTE, VoLTE, DMB (Korea-only), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS

That’s a very well-rounded package, and we’re particularly happy to see Samsung use a 1080p screen in this upper mid-ranger. The only thing that has us slightly worried is that Android 5.0 Lollipop is not on board, but we do expect future devices to get updated in the not so distant future.

Next, we have the more affordable Samsung Galaxy Grand Max that comes with a more typical, plasticky Samsung design. Despite its ‘max’ ambitions, the phone features the same 5.24" screen size with lower, 720p HD resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB RAM, 16 gigs of internal storage that you can expand via a microSD card (of up to 64GB). It’s also not too thick at 7.9mm.

All in all, the Galaxy A7 seems like the more awe-inspiring of the couple. You can see the first leaked images of the two right below: how do you like what you see?

the A7 seems mildly disappointing since the rumors were that it would include a 5.5" screen. A compelling midrange phone with a larger screen would've been great. Not all of us have the extra cash for a Note4 (or 3)

Disappointed with the batt capacity actually. If you look here:-http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_820-reviews-6636.php ~that SD615 packing w/ just 100mAh larger batt Desire 820 seems to have a somewhat problematic batt life from user reports and keep in mind that the 820 move pixels at only HD while this A7 are coming in FHD. Achilles heel seems to be that this A series insistence on thinness require a fair bit of compromise...

yeah, i was thinking the same thing. That 2500mAh is a limitation as well.

Think it will have autonomy as S5. Little less capacity but slower, more economic cpu.

I'm still looking for a phone to keep but if Samsung idiots keep making phones with protruding camera, I'll just have to look somewhere else.

Are you an apple lover who now wants to point out that Samsung phones have protruding cameras? Lol go read a book

Who said Tracy1988 was an apple lover? Is a person not allowed to criticise a company, to make them improve their products, without being called a fan of another company? Honestly EC112987, grow up.

great specs for a mid-ranger, especially the snapdragon 615 and 1080p Display. But the only problem is the battery. only 2500 mAh :(. hoping the price is gonna be okay.

I purchased the Galaxy Alpha for my wife's sister. When I received the phone I was very disappointed. It honestly felt cheap, probably because it was nearly all aluminum except for the back door which it doesn't even need since it doesn't have an SDCARD slot. It was also so very tiny to hold. Of course I have gotten use to holding the Note for the past 3 years. But even my wife who has very small hands says it was way to small and she just left an S5 for the Note 4. Also at a price point at $500, that is ridiculous for only 720P. 1080P has been out long enough to be fairly cheap especially since Samsung makes it own displays. They could have shoved the S4 display into that package and it would have been perfect. It simply felt like a toy. It looked very cool, it was very fast with the Exynos. It was the first time in years I used a device that didn't have carrier bloat on it and it was really nice. But I'd say it isn't work more than $350 tops. A Note II or the S4 is a much better buy as older phones vs this which is what I ended up doing. I sold the Alpha and got theS4 instead. Hopefully the A7 is a much better option.

You actually bought a phone without even knowing what it offers? Lol this is why phones are being displayed at stores!

I just bought a galaxy alpha a week ago and it feels not cheap at all, okay it's not premium, but it's not cheap. I used galaxy mega 6.3 for 1,5 years and no big deal using this tiny phone
