Samsung's thinnest smartphone ever (Galaxy A7) costs more than the S5 in Europe
Back in January, Samsung announced the Galaxy A7, making it its thinnest smartphone ever. At 151 x 76.2 x 6.3 mm, the A7 is a tad thinner than Samsung's previous slimmest handsets: the 6.7mm Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy A5.
As of this week, the Samsung Galaxy A7 can be pre-ordered in Europe, where it costs €499 (around $568). Both Amazon France and Amazon Germany are taking pre-orders for the A7, with Amazon France actually letting you buy the white variant of the handset right now - though it's asking €600 for it (so you're better off pre-ordering the black or gold versions, which should be in stock starting the coming weeks).
Obviously, with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge coming soon, the Galaxy A7 might be overlooked by some customers. The good news is that, once the S6 and S6 Edge are released, the A7 will probably be available for less than €499.
At the moment, we don't know if Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy A7 in North America, but we will let you know when we find out. Anyone looking forward to buying the A7?
