Samsung Galaxy A7

Samsung has officially launched the third device in the Galaxy A series, the Galaxy A7. Targeted at a younger audience, the Galaxy A7 has a metal unibody, 5 MP wide-angle front camera and is just 6.3 mm thick, making it Samsung's thinnest smartphone to date.

Boasting a 5.5-inch 720p display, the Galaxy A7 is the largest device in the Galaxy A series. The device is offered in single- and dual-SIM variants, both featuring LTE connectivity and octa-core processors. The single-SIM edition is powered by a 32-bit Exynos 5430 chipset (four Cortex A15 cores at 1.8 GHz and four Cortex A7 cores at 1.3 GHz), while the dual-SIM version features the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC (eight Cortex A53 cores, four clocked at 1.5 GHz and four at 1.0 GHz).

Other specs include 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 13 MP camera at the back, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, NFC, microUSB v2.0 and a 2,600 mAh battery. Imaging-oriented features like Wide Selfie and Beauty Face allow you to take selfies with ease, and the rear camera can also be used for shooting selfies thanks to Rear-cam Selfie. On the software side of things, the device is running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced, although the device is rumored to make its debut in South Korea later this week.
