OEMs often try to advertise how thin and light their smartphones are whenever they’re trying to push a new device in the market. Samsung might be able to make such claims as well when the Galaxy A7 enters the market. This device has been rumored for a couple of months now, and while the devices it was supposed to launch with have already been made official, Samsung is yet to officially confirm the Galaxy A7′s existence. There’s ample evidence to support theories that its coming out soon, and when it does, it may be known as the thinnest smartphone that Samsung has ever released.
A new, super-slim Samsung smartphone has been leaked. It’s likely to be called the Galaxy A7, and it’s a continuation of the desirable Galaxy Alpha line. The phone has shown up on China’s mobile hardware certification website, along with an almost complete list of specifications, and some less than flattering pictures. According to the specs, the Galaxy A7 will measure a mere 6.3mm thick, which is slimmer than the 6.7mm Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy A5 – making it Samsung’s thinnest Galaxy phone to date. The list continues, and shows the A7 to be technically superior to the recently announced Galaxy Alpha, A3 and A5. The 5.5-inch, 1080p screen is a surprise, particularly stuffed inside such a sleek body, and is larger and higher resolution than the Galaxy Alpha. A new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM is listed, making the A7 fit and ready for Android 5.0 Lollipop, but initially it’s expected to come with Android 4.4.4 KitKat installed. A 13-megapixel rear camera should be joined by a 5-megapixel front camera, which matches the Galaxy A5’s photographic capabilities. Other specs include 4G LTE and 16GB of internal memory.
