This week, Samsung announced its new eight-core smartphone, the Galaxy A7. Slimmer, metal, and faster, the Galaxy A7 moves away from the Galaxy S family. Though no release date has been announced, here’s what to expect from the new 5.5-inch phone:

  • 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera: the best camera yet for the brand
  • Voice and touchless commands for taking automatic selfies
  • Private mode that adds a layer of security for files and documents
  • At 6.3 mm, it’s thinner than the iPhone 6
  • Available in black, white, and gold

Experts believe the phone will launch this spring.
