According to recent reports, the Korean tech giant was planning to lift the lid on the Samsung Galaxy A7 in South Korea soon, but the question was when. Now, according to a report, the A7 will make its debut on the 14th of January.
The news comes to us courtesy of Korean-speaking site Ruliweb. According to the site, Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy A7 alongside the Galaxy A5 (now available in China, Taiwan, and other places around the world) in its home country on the 14th of January. The A7 is the thinnest smartphone in Samsung’s lineup measuring 150.9 x 75.9 x 6.3 mm. It also sports the most advanced hardware among all smartphones in Samsung’s Galaxy A-series.
Specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, probably a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2,500 mAh battery. Unfortunately, it runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) out of the box. We’re hoping it gets updated to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) soon after launch.
Aside from South Korea, Samsung will also launch the A7 in China. It is yet to be determined if the A7 will be released globally.
