With CES 2015 out of the way, it’s time to get back to business — and that’s exactly what Samsung is up to. The electronics giant has just launched its new Galaxy A7 smartphone with fairly decent specs and dependable, if not new, Android KitKat 4.4.

The A7 follows the current trend of 5.5-inch screens, but manages to stay notably slim at just 6.3mm with a metal unibody design. It’s got a 1080p AMOLED display and is powered by an octa-core processor (with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. There’s also a microSD slot that supports 64GB cards, a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, and a 2,600mAh battery to round things out.
