Samsung’s newest phone, the Galaxy A7, stands out in 2 ways; its is the most thin phone of all its Galaxy A collections and a lot of emphasis has also been put on social networking. For a while now, there has been many rumors on its release that its actual realease doesnt feel so new.

The Galaxy A7 is the thinnest but it shares some of its qualities with other A series phone. For example, both the Galaxy A5 and the Samsung Galaxy A3 feature the same kind of metallic unibody as the Galaxy A7.

Other features include a 260mAh battery, 5.5 inch 1080p saMOLED display, a slot for a microSD card of up to 64GB, 16GB storage, and a 2GB RAM. The main camera has LED light, autofocus and 13 megapixels while the front has 5 megapixels and a sensor.

Buyers can also choose between 2 sim cards and 1 sim card phone. The 1 sim card phone has 32-bit Exynos 5430 processor while the double sim features a 64-bit snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. Currently, the phone uses the Android 4.4 KitKat but this is expected to change soon after the launch of Android 5.0 Lollipop.

What makes the Galaxy A7 good for social networking? To start with, the phone has an “auto selfie” setting on the front camera. It also has gesture and voice command  features which come in handy when taking pictures.

Another feaure is the “ultra wide Shot”. For people that like sharing their pictures on social media, the LTE 4G makes it so easy and fast to browse and share.

Galaxy A7  is expected to retail at about $600 and will be available in selected markets for the first quarter of 2015.
