Samsung’s continuing their trend of metal-clad goodness as the company has announced another new smartphone this morning. It’s the Samsung Galaxy A7, a phone which is being billed as Samsung’s thinnest yet, and does so with a nice metal unibody casing.

The device joins the Samsung Galaxy A5 and Samsung Galaxy A3 to round out a trio of teasers for what Samsung’s dreaming up for their first 2015 flagship (which is expected to be revealed at next month’s Mobile World Congress). Let’s jump right into the nuts and bolts:

  • 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display (resolution not listed)
  • Octacore 1.8GHz – 1.3GHz chipset for LTE version, Octacore 1.5GHz – 1.0GHz for LTE/3G Dual-SIM
  • 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, MicroSD up to 64GB
  • 13 megapixel camera w/ 5.0 megapixel front camera
  • 2,600mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N, aGPS w/ GLONASS and NFC (only for LTE version)
  • 151 x 76.2 x 6.3mm, 141g
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Samsung’s calling it the ultimate social phone, likely due to the front camera’s wide-angle selfie-appropriate lens. Other than that there isn’t much special going on here software-wise — it’s TouchWiz on top of KitKat, and we’re sure it’s soon to see Lollipop.

The star of this show is that stunningly thin metal build, and if this is a sign of things to come we can’t imagine anyone will opt to argue. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but we’re sure that info will be coming along shortly.
