Samsung has now finally and officially unveiled its Galaxy A7 which comes with 6.3mm thick metal unibody and will be available in two different versions, with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC or a 32-bit Exynos 5430 SoC.

The precise dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy A7 are 151x76.2x6.3mm and it weighs 141g, which makes it the slimmest smartphone with a metal unibody. Beside its impressively thin metal unibody, the main feature of the Galaxy A7 smartphone, which is not that impressive, is its 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1280x720 resolution, which adds up to 267ppi of pixel density.
