Samsung officially showcases the Galaxy A7, its thinnest smartphone ever

Samsung officially showcases the Galaxy A7, its thinnest smartphone ever
While Samsung has yet to properly announce the Galaxy A7, today it showcased the handset in Malaysia, during the launch of the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 in the country. This is the first time when Samsung is presenting the A7, finally confirming not just its existence, but also some of its features.

As previously reported, the Galaxy A7 is only 6.3mm thin, thus being the slimmest smartphone ever made by Samsung (though it’s not much thinner than the Galaxy A5, or the Galaxy Alpha). 

The A7 is made out of metal, and is considerably taller than the A5, as it sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. The new handset also offers more processing power, thanks to an octa-core Snapdragon 615 CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz. A 13 MP rear camera, a 2600 mAh battery, and Android KitKat are also among its features.

According to Malaysian website SoyaCincau, the Galaxy A7 will be released in Malaysia in February, possibly costing around $400. Before that, the handset should be launched in South Korea. Samsung will probably reveal more about the A7 in the coming weeks - we’ll let you know when that happens.

Speaker position and it's design should be changed. Again Sammy is creating Mess with almost same specs and prices with A3/A5/A7 or E5/E7 or Grand Max. :(

Exactly.And this is good for Sony/Htc. But Samsung is still strong with its S and Note line-up.

It won't be interesting until they can make it as thin as paper so I can use it as toilet paper. After that no needs worrying about charging it 3 times a day.

Not bad, hope it doesn't lag like their crappy low-mid end phones.

You mean those with single core CPU?

Forget about those with single core CPU, even those with quad core CPU is very laggy. One of my friend had a Grand 2 with quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, after few months using it, it was very laggy and now he has a Asus Zenfone 5 and he's very happy with it. One of my uncle has a Grand Quattro with quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, after few months using it, same thing happened and he's planning on getting a new phone (definitely not another Samsung).

l have a Note 10.1(N8000), it's very laggy on ICS and JB but Samsung have done a very good job on eliminating most of the lags on KK update. Overall, l'm happy with it.

Same here. I had some probs on JB on my 2013 N10.1, but with the KK update it's working super fine and smooth, hoping it 'll get 5.0 ...

lol. liar. my mom has a Grand 2. 5 of my friends have Grand 2s. and no dear, it does not lag at all. my mom spams it with apps pictures and useless stuff and it never lagged. It has been almost a year now and it's as new. asus zenwhat? what the heck is that? a computer board? a new phone? may I guess xiwawawami? or hawawawi or some shrizanga brand?

Just telling the truth, no need to get butthurt. And I have a reason to suspect that you're a liar, your mom's and friend's Grand 2's are all laggy. End of the story. ------This topic is closed------

hahahahaha heck yeah you know a person from the stuff they tend to get. go buy a cheap china, it's better, it's what you deserve. for me? a midrange Samsung or Sony is better off then a premium xiwawa or whatever that is. I'd rather have a "normal" phone from a super known and respected brand rather than being an iPhone wanabe or a sony copier buying from a cheap company. so the way you disrespect yourself looking for the cheapest brand offering better specs and squeezing every dollar says something about what you are. as you tend to go for the 10$ cheaper you'd rather lie to explain why you take stup!d decisions. End of conversation. so long s-cker.

OMG i tought they would be offering lesser handsets this year. It is just the 8th of January and they already released their nth phone. I lost count LOL.

It seems like a joke that they keep releasing so many different handsets every year. Those Samsung idiots just can't understand that they're depreciating their own products.

Wait a snapdragon processor from last year is still pretty good. Also a 1080p screen? Hopefully the design is what the s6 will look like

Source link says it's also a unibody design. This phone might be dope after all

Typical sheep... even my htc from 2011 have Protruding camera. I dont think apple have invented something in the mobile world. Or done something new since the original iphone. they are good though at using other companies technologys and combine them to one good product.

It is beautiful, but is not so different. It's the same Samsung design language :/ I want a really different S6!
