Samsung has been popping out smartphones like crazy recently, from the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 to the Galaxy E7 and Galaxy E5. Now the South Korean electronics giant has launched yet another phone, the Galaxy A7, which is actually the company’s thinnest smartphone to date. It will be launching in Malaysia next month for the equivalent of around $420.
While Samsung has yet to properly announce the Galaxy A7, today it showcased the handset in Malaysia, during the launch of the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 in the country. This is the first time when Samsung is presenting the A7, finally confirming not just its existence, but also some of its features. As previously reported, the Galaxy A7 is only 6.3mm thin, thus being the slimmest smartphone ever made by Samsung (though it’s not much thinner than the Galaxy A5, or the Galaxy Alpha). The A7 is made out of metal, and is considerably taller than the A5, as it sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. The new handset also offers more processing power, thanks to an octa-core Snapdragon 615 CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz. A 13 MP rear camera, a 2600 mAh battery, and Android KitKat are also among its features.
