Samsung launched a new handset with a slightly larger 5.5-inch screen then its siblings Galaxy A3 and A5, the Galaxy A7. The octa-core Samsung Galaxy A7 will be arriving in two different chipset-variants. The smartphone will feature a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC or 32-bit Exynos 5430 SoC, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC features four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.0GHz, while the Samsung Exynos 5430 sports four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1.3GHz. The Galaxy A7 sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and includes selfie features including 'Ultra Wide Shot' and 'Auto Selfie' modes. The phone also offers a Private Mode, which adds an extra layer of security for important files and documents. It also has multi-screen app function capability. Galaxy A7 is actually very similar to the Desire 826. It has a 2600mAh (9.88Wh) battery, a 13MP rear-facing camera, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 16GB of Internal storage, and a MicroSD slot. The Galaxy A7 bests the Desire 826 with its size though. It's smaller, lighter, and much thinner. In fact, with a thickness of only 6.3mm, it's thinner than Apple's flagship iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Samsung Galaxy A7 flaunts a 5.5-inch Super-AMOLED display with an HD (720x1280n pixels) resolution and runs Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box. Samsung Galaxy A7 will be available in dark blue, white, or gold color schemes.
