Samsung Galaxy A7 reaches the US via Amazon
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7 handset back in mid-January, advertising it as "one of the slimmest Galaxy smartphones with premium hardware for a superior social experience." Featuring a generous 5.5-inch AMOLED Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection and a metallic body, this smartphone packs a 5 MP front-facing camera and a set of advanced selfie capabilities, such as Ultra Wide Shot and Auto Selfie.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 up for sale on Amazon for just $442 USD (with free shipping in the US) comes loaded with a 64-bit Exynos 5433 Octa SoC, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB, dual-SIM capabilities, and a 13 MP main camera. The only color available is white and this model, labeled SM-A700H, only offers 3G connectivity.
The Amazon product page does not mention the Android version loaded on the SM-A700H, but the A7 family started to receive Lollipop last month so, in worst case scenario, customers will have to update their new handsets from the original Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Obviously, all units for sale come unlocked and without carrier branding.
