The Samsung Galaxy A7, which made its way through the FCC last week, has been revealed by a Chinese regulatory filing to be Samsung’s thinnest ever Galaxy smartphone, at just 6.3mm thick. To put that into perspective, the company’s flagship Galaxy S5 is 8.1mm thick … 


Other specs are almost entirely in line with earlier reports: a 5.5-inch 1080p display (slightly larger than the rumored 5.2-inch one), 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor running at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 12MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing one.

While Samsung hasn’t yet officially announced the handset, it’s clear that the Galaxy A7 will sit at the top of the company’s stylish mid-range offerings, joining the A3 and A5. The version seen in this filing is intended for the Chinese market only, but the FCC filing shows that Samsung also has the U.S. market in its sights.

Samsung is in the process of rationalising the number of different models it makes, following a 74% drop in Q3 profits.
