Galaxy A5). Thanks to a user agent profile of a device codenamed SM-A700FD (or Galaxy A7) we now also know that the rumors were true and that the screen's resolution will sit at 1080 x 1920, or a density of 401 pixels per inch. What's more, we've also got another confirmation -- the 1.5GHz chipset powering the A7 is based on ARMv8-A architecture, meaning that we're looking at a 64-bit processor (Snapdragon 410?). From what we know so far, the entire A family will hit the market with Android 4.4 KitKat in tow, so the 64-bit part will stay irrelevant for a while -- at least until these devices get an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is the first version of Google's mobile platform to make actual use of the newer architecture.As we've discussed previously, the Galaxy A7 is expected to launch with a 5.5-inch display, making it the biggest of the suggested trio (plus the 4.5-inch Galaxy A3 and 5-inch
Lastly, rumors have so far suggested that the Samsung Galaxy A7 won't be particularly cheap, and will sport a mid-range price of anywhere between $450 and $500. From our experience, depending on the rest of the specs, that tag will either make or break the A7.
Images below are of the Galaxy A3 and A5, not the A7, but we expect it to be similarly-styled in terms of its design.

Actually it's Apple who needs to stop imitating Samsung and Android. Gear watch with the "gimmicky" heart rate monitor>>> Apple Watch Note Series>> iPhone 6+ 4.7" phone, check HTC m7 design, check Predictive keyboard, check Quick toggles, check NFC, live wallpapers, widgets, 3rd party keyboards, battery stats, S-health.

@aba71983 there are cheap Samsung phones because the company as well considers consumers with budget constraints, making smartphones available for everybody whereas Apple considers only rich consumers. Samsung knows what they were doing.
