Samsung is going to be releasing a new smartphone called the Galaxy A7 in the upcoming weeks. It is going to be pretty similar to the Galaxy Alpha and will be completely made of metal. Recently some leaked documents that came out of China revealed the A7 with the same metal edges as the Galaxy Alpha and the Note 4. From everything that can be found on the internet, it seems that the phone is going to be one of the most exciting releases of the new year.
In the same documents that were leaked from China show the metal edges, photos show that the A7 will be the thinnest phone that Samsung has ever manufactured. Along with the metal casing, this is shaping up to be everything that anyone has ever wanted in a smartphone. It’s always about being thinner and more durable.
It also has a ton of other cool features including a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a super fast Exynos 5433 processor, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
The phone isn’t expected to have the newest version of Android though, but that is to be expected. It will probably come with Android KitKat which is the operating system most common on the higher end Android phones.

With all of these features, it might end up being one of Samsung’s most popular phones. Could it be an iPhone killer? Probably not, simply because Apple has become a fashion statement more than a tech company. But it should certainly be able to perform better than your average iPhone. It will also be a tiny bit thinner than an iPhone with the same size display.
The major issues to consider are the facts that it has a slightly smaller battery than the Galaxy S5, and it is just a hair heavier than the iPhone 6. But other than that, it’s probably something to keep in the back of your mind when your upgrade comes along this year!
