Samsung Galaxy A7 smartphone launched, joins the A3 and A5
Samsung has launched a new ‘A’ Series smartphone, the Galaxy A7. It follows in the footsteps of the premium metal constructed Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 which we saw arrive in October last year. As you might guess from the established numbering scheme in this series the Galaxy A7 is the largest yet.
The South Korean tech giant touts the A7 smartphone as being “one of the slimmest Galaxy smartphones equipped with premium hardware for a superior social experience”. In addition to the premium build Samsung has not neglected the inner hardware and the specs of the Galaxy A7 are as attractive as its slim styling.
Samsung Galaxy A7 specifications list:
Processor: Octa-core – either a Samsung Exynos Exynos 5430 + M7450 (Quad A15 1.8GHz + Quad A7 1.3GHz) or Qualcomm MSM8x39 (Quad A53 1.5GHz + Quad A53 1.0GHz) processor depending upon region
- Screen: 5.5-inch HD sAMOLED
- Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB storage + microSD card
- Camera: 13MP main and 5MP front
- Network: LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, BT 4.0, NFC (LTE version only)
- Sensors: Accelerometer, Proximity, Geomagnetic, RGB, Hall, Light
- Dimensions: 151 x 76.2 x 6.3 mm, 141g
- Battery: 2,600mAh

Not listed among the above hardware specs are features such as the camera’s ‘Ultra Wide Shot’ and ‘Auto Selfie’ modes. Also, an important basic function of the smartphone, voice calling, is aided by ‘Always Clear Voice Auto Control’ to reduce noise from the surrounding environment. The Android OS on the A7 is helped along with multitasking by Samsung’s useful multi-window feature you might have experienced on the Galaxy Note series for example.
These Samsung A series smartphones offer a nice constructional quality but keener prices than the flagship S range. Perhaps Samsung has already seen the A3 and A5 perform well enough to launch this largest of the bunch A7. While the Galaxy A Series is possibly made primarily for the East Asia geographic market recent reports via SamMobile suggest that the Galaxy A3 and A5 will arrive in Europe shortly.
