Nobody stays on top in tech forever–ask IBM, Sony, Microsoft or Atari. It’s a fluid, volatile sector. Hey, when a whole industry glorifies disruption, expect disruption! Still without a release date, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is coming soon to the smartphone landscape, hoping to disrupt. Early reports say this metal phone could challenge the iPhone as the device de rigeur. Especially since we may be approaching a point when technology and features temporarily level off, and devices become as much about fashion as capability (except with the really hard core user). Look at Beats vs. Bose.
The Sam Mobile blog reports that the Galaxy A7 will “feature 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a 2,600mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone has dimensions of 150×75×6.3mm.” Not the lightest but the thinnest Samsung phone yet. Slimmer than the iPhone 6. And super slick looking.
