The Samsung Galaxy A7, which was launched early this year, is now available to buy online in the US.

Amazon US has listed the smartphone for $442 (£285), which is a SIM-free/unlocked variant. The portal has reportedly waved off shipping charges on delivery of the device.

The USP of the Galaxy A7 is its metal-clad outer-cover and that it has already started receiving Android 5.0 (Lollipop) OS update in various parts of the world. The device runs the Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) out-of-the-box.

Potential buyers can navigate to Amazon US to purchase the Samsung Galaxy A7.
