Update: The Samsung Galaxy A7 with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor is officially launched in India, for the price of Rs. 30,500. Just like the A3 and A5, it has the Dual SIM card slots, and there is a 2600 mAh battery packed in.
Just recently, Samsung announced two smartphones, for the first time with a full metal body, and ultra-slim profiles – the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5. The third device in the A series, the Galaxy A7 was already rumored earlier, but now a benchmark test result puts out almost all the specifications and details about the smartphone.
The Galaxy A7 popped up on the official website of the company, before going hidden, but that didn’t reveal any details apart from the name. The GFXBench benchmark test results database showed this particular device, and that gives the following details.
A 5.2-inch 1080p display is what the A7 will flaunt on the front, and internally, it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC (octa-core CPU clocking at 1.5 GHz) with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. These details are enough to say how better this is, compared to the two other devices in the A series. Other specs include a 12-megapixel rear camera, 4.7-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The model number of the Galaxy A7 is shown SM-A700, and because we are relying only on the Benchmark results, this is already a lot of information known. With this being another device with a metal body, the expectation is high, because Samsung has just recently started giving importance to the design and material of the smartphones.
Before this, Zauba (website where exports and imports are tracked) had listed the same phone, but that showed a Samsung device with 5.5-inch display having an HD resolution. With two sources claiming different specs, we’ll have to wait and see which comes out as true in the end, although we tend to believe the specs that are listed on the GFXBench benchmark database, because it had been a source for leaks (although that isn’t the intention) earlier as well.
Pricing? we expect this to be priced between $400-$500, but Samsung has any surprises to offer?
