Samsung’s thinnest smartphone, the Galaxy A7 might be close to launch

Samsung’s A7, rumored to be the company’s thinnest smartphone to date is coming close to its release date.


The last few days have seen several reliable (sort of, kind of, like any leak) rumors that claim Samsung’s new Galaxy A7 is going to be extremely thin, at mere 6.3 mm, even thiner than the Galaxy Alpha which currently held the record. This data comes from Chinese regulatory approval details spotted by Phone Arena and the CNET teams.

But the news don’t stop at its purported size, as Phone Arena also did quite a job revealing the hardware details. The Galaxy A7 will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, on a 5.5-inch 1,080p display. Also, it will be equipped with two cameras, one at 12-megapixel and another at 5-megapixel in the back and front respectively. The specs so far look great too, with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 1.5GHz octa-core processor and 2GB RAM, with 16GB of internal storage making it roughly an equivalent of the Nexus 5 or Moto X.

It remains to be seen whether this model is going to be sold only in China, or Samsung will bring it overseas to other markets.
