The Samsung Galaxy A7 launched in Russia earlier this month and now it’s headed to Malaysia. The slender phablet will cost MYR 1,500 ($ 410/365). That’s a noticeably better deal than Russia got where the phablet is $ 530/450 (as usual tech gets a hefty markup there).
The Samsung Galaxy A7 will be available through Samsung Experience Stores and authorized dealers starting in February. It will come in three color versions – Midnight Black, Pearl White and Champagne Gold.
The smaller Samsung Galaxy A5 is already available at MYR 1,200 ($ 330/290). Both devices have metal frames and 64-bit Snapdragon chipsets, but the Galaxy A7 is bigger with its 5.5″ 1080p Super AMOLED screen, has eight cores instead of four and is actually thinner than its sibling – 6.3mm vs. 6.7mm.
