Extremely thin smartphone 'Galaxy A7' launched Samsung

Samsung announced Monday the launch of the Galaxy A7, one of the company's slimmest smartphones ever.

The very Galaxy Alpha-like device has a metal frame and a body, which is only 6.3mm (0.245 inches) thick. With Samsung's head of IT & Mobile JK Shin describing the device as "stylish," it's obvious that Samsung is going for looks first and performance second.

Still, the Galaxy A7 has a decent set of specifications, with a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen, a 1.8GHz quad.core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory (extendable up to 64GB via a microSD memory card) and a 13-megapixel shooter on the back.

Other features of note include a 2,600mAh battery, LTE support and Android 4.4 KitKat. Interestingly, Samsung's specifications list the screen as HD, but the company never specifies whether it means full HD (1920x1080 pixels) or HD ready (1280x720 pixels).

The device will also be available as a dual-SIM variant, but with a slightly slower, 1.5GHz quad-core main processor.

The phone is a continuation of Samsung's Galaxy A line of products, with A3 and A5 being launched in Nov. 2014. Those two devices were also exceptionally slim — at 6.9mm (0.271 inches) and 6.7mm (0.264 inches), respectively — but not as much as the A7. For comparison, the company's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, has a body that's 8.1mm (0.319 inches) thick.

The Galaxy A7 will be available in three colors — Pearl White, Midnight Black, and Champagne Gold — in select markets, though Samsung did not disclose the date or price.
