Samsung compares the Galaxy A7, A5 and A3 in new infographic

Samsung compares the Galaxy A7, A5 and A3 in new infographic
Samsung today finally announced the Galaxy A7, its slimmest smartphone ever (only 6.3 mm), and the third to be included in the Galaxy A series.

As you probably already know, the other two Galaxy A handsets are the A3 and A5, both of which are already available to buy in select markets. To illustrate the differences between the A7, A5, and A3, Samsung posted an infographic that compares them. Of course, there are also quite a few similarities between the three Galaxy A devices, including the design language, or the fact that they all have 5 MP front-facing cameras, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory.

Since it sports a 5.5-inch display, the A7 is the largest among the three smartphones. It’s also the most powerful, thanks to the fact that it comes with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, or a 32-bit octa-core Exynos 5430 CPU - depending on market and model.

Expected to be released in the coming weeks in some markets, the Galaxy A7 should cost about $500. Check out the Galaxy A infographic below, and let us know if you like Samsung’s new family of smartphones. Additionally, you should check out our own comparisons between the Galaxy A7 and rival handsets - here and here.

Consumers will buy whatever suites them. The word boring hardly describes the thinest phone ever!!

This is the slimmest phone Samsung has ever made NOT the slimmest phone ever made. There are quite a few phones slimmer than 6.3mm. I believe the current holder of that title is the Vivo X5 Max at 4.75 mm.

"Thinnest phone ever" means jack s**t to me if it only allows for easier carrying or operation but also with batt capacity compromised. People need to get their priorities straight....

Samesung keeps shooting themselves in the foot with the same old design, overpriced craps. It's a shame because I think their Super AMOLED display is beautiful and perfect for indoor user like me.

I could buy A7 if it cost 300-350€. Anything more and its overpriced.

I agree with clirim. Samsung A7 is better than iPhone 6 and it is cheaper: It is the best device in the A series and I actually like the fact that many manufacturers started producing many entry-level and mid-range devices. The Samsung A series, E series and upcoming J series offer consumers more choices.

Hopefully the A5 is priced at $199.99 unlocked, but knowing Samsung, its unlikely
