After months of speculations, Samsung finally pulled the wraps on the much-awaited Galaxy A7 in Philippines.
As reported last month, the new premium Galaxy A7 is the slimmest Samsung smartphone to hit the market. It measures just 6.3 mm thick and flaunts the metal-based uni-body design we see in the flagship Galaxy Alpha series. It sports a 5.5-inch full HD super AMOLED display and runs on the Android 4.4 KitKat OS out-of-the-box.
Under the hood, it houses the company's proprietary Exynos 5433 Octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 12mp main camera, 5mp snapper on the front, and a 2,600mAh battery.
Besides Galaxy A7, Samsung also showcased the less expensive A5 and A3 models, which were launched last week in India. [scroll down for specification details]
