Official: Samsung Galaxy A7 unveiled (and launched in the Philippines)
After series of leaks and gossips, Samsung has finally taken the veil off their much-anticipated Galaxy A7 smartphone. As expected, the device takes a clue from the smaller siblings of the Galaxy A family (namely Samsung Galaxy A3 and Samsung Galaxy A5) especially in the aspect of design.
In the Philippines, the metal-clad smartphone was launched with a price tag of PHP 24,990, a hefty $554 when translated to US dollars sing the current exchange rates. Meanwhile, the phone is reportedly going to be available in Malaysia even though prices haven’t been made known.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 spec-wise, features a 5.5-inch display with 1080p resolution, summing to a PPI of 401. The device comes with a 12-megapixel camera and LED flash at the rear, coupled with a 5MP front-facing selfie camera. Running on the smartphone is Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS though we are not quite sure of the device will be upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Under the hood, you’ll find Samsung’s proprietary 64-bit Exynos 5433 octa-core CPU (1.8GHz cortex A53 cores and 1.3GHz cortex A53 cores) alongside 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The whole engine of the phone is powered by a 2600mAh battery.
In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy A7 packs NFC, LTE as well as the regular suspects which include GSM, 3G, A-GPS + GLONASS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. The device measures 150.9 x 75.9 x 6.3 millimeters.
