Samsung did say it was going to ease down on the amount of smartphone offerings for 2015, but here we are just days into the New Year and we're being introduced to the new, all-metal Galaxy A7 handset.

The new Galaxy A7 smartphone features a much better, high quality build made from a full aluminum, unibody construction. We have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 64-bit processor, providing eight CPU cores in total. These are split into two separate quad-core processors, clocked at 1.8GHz, and 1.3GHz or 1.5GHz and 1GHz for the dual SIM version of the Galaxy A7.

We don't know which resolution the 5.5-inch panel sports, but we can be sure it'll be 1920x1080 (but it could be 720p, boo). There's also 2GB of RAM, 16GB of NAND flash backed up by expandable microSD, LTE Category 4, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel selfie shooter, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and Android 4.4. We should expect a 2600mAh battery, and a thin design for the Galaxy A7.

As for pricing and availability, we will have more information as it comes.
