Samsung Galaxy A7 SM-A700

Samsung Galaxy A7 SM-A700Samsung has been on a systems overhaul for sometime now, started with the Galaxy Alpha followed closely by Galaxy Note 4. The Galaxy A series which had been a rumour for sometime got born, and this is what Samsung plans to take to the future in the fight for the spoilt users marketshare. Galaxy A was also recently complemented with a less endowed Galaxy E series aesthetically, same design but without the metal frame.

Now Galaxy A series now has three devices on board, the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7. The first two were announced sometime back last year and have already hit some markets. Today, Monday Samsung announces the Galaxy A7 which is the largest physically among the three. Galaxy A7 was previously spotted in Malaysia with a report that it will be launched in the South East Asia country.

Samsung Galaxy A Series represents Samsung’s move to better premium materials for their mid range devices upwards. There is emphasis on design element, social element and imaging element. The three are brought out by getting the premium build with metal frame and unibody design for the design element.

Social element and imaging element comes along with the 5 MP front camera for selfies with wide angle and camera software to compliment it. The software features auto-selfie mode which takes commands or hand gesture to capture shots. Clear Voice Auto control ensures the voice commands are not ruined by surrounding noise. It also has ultra wide shot for those group selfies.

“The Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 are designed for those who want to express effortlessly their unique style. ……….The range empowers users to choose a device which reflects their personal style and lifestyle needs, not just in terms of their unique features, but also their size and color options.”
