Samsung recently unveiled one of the sleekest Galaxy smartphones. This most recent addition to its line of Alpha successors is the Galaxy A7, a bigger sibling to the A5 and A3.

Integrating multitasking performance along with a sophisticated design, the new A7 boosts some of the popular services provided by its ancestors, facilitating users to seamlessly share every moment of their lives on social media platforms.

JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics revealed that the South Korean company wants to develop devices that allure an even broader range of users. Owners of Samsung smartphones will be much ahead of the social media trend. The Galaxy A7 is a stylish blend of beautifully crafted metallic design and powerful performance, delivering a superior user experience.

A Trend Setter in Social Interaction

The Galaxy A7 is endowed with a multicore processor fusing two separate quad core processors. The premium hardware enables users to perform data intensive tasks speedily and efficiently.

It has 16 GB of memory and 2GB of RAM to power user’s favorite videos, images and app, and is supported by a durable 2,600 mAh battery.

The Galaxy A7 comes with the same intuitive features and services offered by A5 and A3, in addition to an advanced 5 Megapixel front-facing camera with advanced selfies features including ‘Ultra Wide Shot’ and ‘Auto Selfie’ modes, enabling users to take images with the help of a voice command or a simple wave of the hand. It also features a ‘Always Clear Voice Auto Control’ that helps users reduce noise from the surrounding environment, and LTE Category 4 support to make it quick and easy to upload photos and videos on social media platforms.

This one of the three ace members of the Alpha family also offers an extra layer of security to protect important files and documents. It also comes with Multi Screen app function capability.

Alpha Family at a Competitive Price

The Galaxy A7 is by all means going to be compared to iPhone 6 Plus, which shares the same 5.5-inch screen size. The latest member in the Alpha family, however, lacks the full 1080p resolution.

But then again, the Galaxy A7 is intended to target budget-conscious users. Keeping its 6.3mm thickness in mind, it can be safely assumed that the device will be priced at mid-range levels

It will be shipped out with Android 4.4 KitKat. The A7 also comes with the dual-SIM option, which is quite popular in developing markets as well as in China and Russia.

In 2014, Samsung had rolled out an eight-core version of the Galaxy S5. Looks like it had been outed with the latest octocore Galaxy A7. If the trend keeps continuing, it is more likely the next addition in the Alpha family will be slimmer and sleeker than ever. Today’s consumers find the sleek metallic body as a more desirable option.

It’s going to be dual 1.8 GHz and 1.3GHz quad-core processor, or 1.5 GHz and 1.0GHz in the dual-SIM version along with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon chip.

As of now, not much has been known in the Galaxy A7 release date, initial markets or its price. However, according to reports that surfaced in early January, it might be available at around $420 without contract.

The Galaxy A7 will be available in Midnight Black, Pearl White, and Champagne Gold.
