Samsung has today officially launched the Galaxy A7 making it the third device in the Galaxy A series. The Galaxy A7 arrives with a metal unibody, 5 MP wide-angle front facing shooter and comes in at just 6.3 mm thick, making it Samsung’s thinnest smartphone to date but knowing Samsung I’m sure we will see thinner soon enough.

The Galaxy Alpha A7 features a 5.5-inch 720p display making it the largest device in the Galaxy A series. The device arrives in both single and dual-SIM variants but both will feature LTE and octa-core processors. The single-SIM variant is powered by a 32-bit Exynos 5430 chipset (four Cortex A15 cores at 1.8 GHz and four Cortex A7 cores at 1.3 GHz), while the dual-SIM version features the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC (eight Cortex A53 cores, four clocked at 1.5 GHz and four at 1.0 GHz).

The other specs are equally as impressive with 2GB of RAM, 13MP shooter, 16GB of internal storage and the much loved microSD card slot. Other than that we have Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, NFC, microUSB v2.0 and a 2,600 mAh battery. The only downside is it arrives running Android 4.4 KitKat and not the latest version of Android.

It seems as if the A7 may be aimed at the younger with it’s Wide Selfie features included. There has been no indication of pricing or availability as yet but when we know we will be sure to let you know.
