Move over Note 4, meet Samsung Galaxy A7

Samsung has released a bigger version of Galaxy Alpha and it is called the Galaxy A7. It is a bigger brother to the previously announced Galaxy A5 and A3 and has similar thin, minimal design and metal bezel and frame. Of course since it is bigger, it is a direct challenger to company’s own Note 4 as it also packs 5.5 inch display.

It will be offered in black, white, and gold. The battery is non removable and so is the SIM slot and micro SD card slot. To access the slots, you must use a SIM card tool. Samsung did not tell us its price but we have been told that it will be priced very competitively  – just like A5 and A3. Its release date was not mentioned.
