Samsung has officially confirmed the Galaxy A7, the fastest, biggest and thinnest device in the Galaxy A series. Boasting a quad-core processor and measuring only 6.3mm thick, the A7 could be a very compelling device.
The Galaxy A7 will be available in two variants: single-SIM and dual-SIM. The only difference between these two models is the processor powering it; the dual-SIM model gets an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with four Cortex-A53 (1.5GHz) and four Cortex-A53 (1.0GHz) cores, while the single-SIM variant gets a Samsung Exynos 5430 octa-core processor with four Cortex-A15 (1.7GHz) and four Cortex-A7 (1.3GHz) cores.
Other specifications include a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display (although the one displayed in the Galaxy A5 and A3 Malaysia launch event has a full HD display), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with support for up to 64GB of microSD card, a 2600mAh battery, LTE support, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. In the camera department, there is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing snapper, and just like the other Galaxy A smartphones, the A7 features a variety of photo taking features such as Wide Selfie, Rear-cam Selfie, and Beauty Face.
The Galaxy A7 will be launched sometime in February in Malaysia with no details on the retail price yet. In case you missed it, here is our hands on of the biggest and fastest device in the Galaxy A series.
