It happens quite often these days that upcoming smartphones accidentally get revealed by their own website and this seems to be the case with the Samsung Galaxy A7. While we still don't know how it looks like, leaked images of the Galaxy A3 suggest that it will share features with the metal-body Galaxy Alpha. The leaked tech specs for the Galaxy A7 include a 1.5GHz 64-bit processor and a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. We assume that it will come out with Android 5.0 Lolipop but asides from that there's little else in terms of details. No Malaysia release dates or pricing but we expect it to be a bit lower than the Galaxy Alpha (which is RM1899) perhaps at RM1799 or so. Stay tuned for more developments.

U Mobile is currently offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet for as low as RM1099. In addition to this, they are also offering a special trade-in feature, so you can send in your old and unwanted smartphone for hopefully some rebates off the asking price. Since the Galaxy Note 4 retails at a very high RM2499, this is quite welcome and you can find out which phone qualifies from the trade-in list. For the no upfront payment scheme, you will have to sign up with your credit card and activate auto debit for the monthly commitment to qualify. Citibank credit card holders get an extra RM100 rebate provided you sign up for a 0% easy payment plan and and the aforementioned auto debit.
