And today, the Korean company has unveiled the same phone for the Russian market. Thankfully, this means the handset now has a recommended retail price attached to it, at least for Russia. Over there it will set you back RUB 31,990, which at the current exchange rates means around $530 or €449.
The usual caveat applies here too - keep in mind that smartphone prices in Russia can be higher than elsewhere, so perhaps the Galaxy A7 will be cheaper in other markets. That said, you do pay for the premium metal design, since the specs of the device are decently midrange, but nothing to really write home about.
Russia could be the first country in the world where the Galaxy A7 will be released, but surely Samsung will follow that up by making the phone available in other places soon. White, black, and gold will be the color variations to choose from.
no barometer, no 802.11ac, no removable battery, no gyroscope, no lollipop on launch, only 16gb option
How is $500 too much for this phone? The specs sound like they're on par with the S4 if not the S5, with it having an octocore processor,2 GBs of RAM, and a Full 1080p HD screen.
funny guys priced this average speced device at 530$ !!! they gone mad ,,,, no one can save them !!! they still dnt understand that price is the selling point over useless metalll
