Like the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, her two little brothers, the new smartphone also features a metal frame.

The Galaxy A7 thus has a Super AMOLED screen of 5.5 inch which is only described as “HD”, which suggests that it is probably a screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Samsung will offer a dual SIM model, with Qualcomm eight core processor, Snapdragon 615, and single SIM variant, with a Samsung Exynos 5430 processor.

Both versions offer support for 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11n and feature a Bluetooth 4.0 chip. It will also be equipped with a 13 megapixel rear camera, a 5 megapixel front camera.

The Galaxy A7 has 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a micro-SD card slot capable of providing up to 64GB additional storage.

The Galaxy A7 will come with Android 4.4 KitKat, although we expect an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop arrives shortly after its launch. According to Samsung, the Galaxy A7 defines “a new standard for social interaction” with a number of features, including “Ultra-Wide shooting” and the parameters “Auto Selfie” for the front camera, or the ability to take pictures with the voice and body language.
