Samsung has just lifted the veil on its new smartphone, the Galaxy A7, and it's a stunner. Sporting an all-metal unibody that's just 6.3mm thin, it's one of the slimmest handsets on the market today. It's so thin it makes the iPhone 6 look positively over weight at 6.9mm. It looks like Apple's latest smartphone has a real fight on its hands when it comes to design.The stylish look of the Samsung Galaxy A7 features a metal unibody that comes in three colours; Pearl White, Midnight Black and for the socialites out there, Champagne Gold.
Although the Samsung Galaxy A7 is thinner than the iPhone 6, Apple's handset is lighter at 129g, compared to the 141g weight of the A7. The A7 comes with a larger screen at 5.5-inches, compared to the iPhone 6's 4.7-inch display. The A7's screen and resolution is the same as the iPhone 6 Plus, which actually ends up weighing more than the Samsung Galaxy A7 at 172g.
Not only is the Samsung Galaxy A7 gorgeous enough to give Apple's iPhones a run for their money, but it's also packed with cutting edge hardware, including an octo-core processor which could leave the iPhone 6's dual-core processor in the dust – on paper at least.
The Galaxy A7 has the aesthetics and the features of a flagship smartphone, so much so that it wouldn't be much of a stretch to say that the A7 is the proper sequel to Samsung's upcoming 'real' flagship, the Galaxy S6 - but without the prohibitive price tag.
Rumours are circulating that Samsung's sexy iPhone challenger could be for N90,000.00. Stunning looks, great hardware and a very respectable price? Almost sounds too good to be true, but we'll find out soon enough when we get our hands on one.
