Both versions of the smartphone will offer 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in memory. A microSD card slot for further expansion will also be available.
Samsung Galaxy A7 packs 5.5” HD Super AMOLED display. The rest of the device’s specs include 13MP main camera, 5MP front-facing unit, and full connectivity suite headed by Cat. 4 LTE.
The smartphone boots Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI. An update to Android 5.0 Lollipop is naturally in the works.
Physical measures of the Samsung Galaxy A7 are 151 x 76.2 x 6.3 mm, while its weight tips the scale at 141 grams. A 2,600mAh battery powers the device. The handset is the slimmest offering with metal unibody to date.
Samsung Galaxy A7 will be available in dark blue, white, or gold color schemes. The Korean giant promises a “competitive price point” for the device.
