Samsung's new Galaxy A series of devices has started getting attention from the tech world, as the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3 smartphones have been released. Following the A5 and A3, the South Korean conglomerate also announced the higher-end Samsung Galaxy A7, alongside the Galaxy E5 smartphone. But now, during a Galaxy A launch event in Malaysia, Samsung apparently showed the Galaxy A7 for the first time to the attendees.

According to reports, the Galaxy A7 is the thinnest smartphone in the history of Samsung. When it comes to key Samsung Galaxy A7 specifications, the device will reportedly feature a metallic unibody design with 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, complemented by 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. Speaking of size, the smartphone will reportedly be 6.3 mm thick. In comparison, this handset is 0.4 mm thinner than the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy Alpha, notes GSM Arena.

Under the hood, the device will reportedly be powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chip with an octa-core processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz. Plus, the phone will be backed by 2 GB of RAM configuration. As far as the memory goes, the handset will come equipped with 16 GB of internal storage capacity. Apart from the standard connectivity options, the Galaxy A7 will also support LTE. Moving on to the camera specification, the device will sport a solid 13 MP rear-facing unit. Lastly, the entire unit is powered by a modest 2,600 mAh battery unit. On the contrary, another report says the Galaxy A7 will come housed with a lower 2,000 mAh battery unit.

When it comes to release date, the Samsung Galaxy A7 will reportedly hit the store shelves of Malaysia in February. Also the price of the handset is reported to be RM 1,499, which roughly translates to $420 and 354 euro. Phone Arena points out that, prior to Malaysian release, the device will be launched in home country South Korea. Nonetheless, the release information pertaining to the regions outside Asia is unknown at this point.

Interested readers should head to GSM Arena to check out the images of the ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy A7. What do you think of the Galaxy A7? Will this device make an impact outside Asia? Feel free to leave a comment.
