Leaked pics reveal a premium Samsung phone even thinner than the iPhone 6

Samsung Galaxy A7 Leaked Pictures

It seems Samsung’s launch of its more “premium” Galaxy A7 is close and has spotted some pictures of the device on the website of China’s telecommunications equipment certification agency. In addition to leaked pictures, has found the device’s dimensions as well and it seems the Galaxy A7 will measure in at a mere 6.3 millimeters thin, which is actually slightly thinner than the 6.9-millimeter frame on the iPhone 6.

As far as specs go, the device will feature a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels, an octa-core 1.5GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. This is largely in line with what we’d previously heard about the Galaxy A7, although earlier leaks had indicated the phone would feature a 5.2-inch display and not a 5.5-inch display.

While these specs aren’t quite on par with the beastly Galaxy Note 4, they do represent a significant jump over the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, which were the first new phones to show off Samsung’s new “premium” full metal unibody smartphone designs.

Samsung is experimenting with new smartphone designs at a time when its mobile phone profits have been tanking and its Galaxy S5 flagship phone has been widely seen as a huge disappointment. While we still don’t have a lot of concrete information on what its upcoming Galaxy S6 will look like, it’s a good bet that it will take a lot more design cues from the Galaxy A series than any previous model.

We’ve posted one picture of the device below but you should head over to to check out the rest.
