Not to worry though that tiny body is packs more than enough to meet your smart phone needs. Powering the Galaxy A7, is either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor made up of a 1.5Ghz quad core and a 1Ghz quad-core or Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5430 made up of a 1.8Ghz quad-core and a 1.3Ghz quad-core. Both are backed by 2GB of RAM and have 4G LTE capabilities, the variances will be region based although at this time they haven’t announced which will be sold were.
Samsung hasn’t always been one for displays the screen on the A7 will be no different, it is a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED with a 720 x 1280 resolution, which in a market where most other companies are pushing the screen tech as far as possible is a bit of a surprise, especially in a top end handset. The quality of the Samsung screens does tend to help overshadow the weaker resolutions though as was the case with the Galaxy Alpha.
The cameras on the A7 are 13-megapixel and a 5-megapixel facing camera. The rear is capable of autofocus, face detection, HDR and has an LED flash. There should be plenty of room to store pictures and video at 1080p and 30fps, with standard options of 16-64 GB via an onboard microSD
The Samsung Galaxy A7 will ship with Android 4.4.4 KitKat but should get an update in the near future. Expect the handset to become available this month when pricing will be announced.
