By Connor Sears , Updated Dec 04, 2014 12:07 PM EST

In the wake of waning smartphone sales, Samsung is still churning out phones in an attempt to revitalize its product line. Thanks to some recent leaks we now have new information about one of these upcoming devices: the ultrathin Galaxy A7.

Rumor Has It The Upcoming Galaxy S6 Will Feature A Version With Samsung's New 'Edge' Screen

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is set to be the Korean tech giant's thinnest phone to date, CNET reported. New details about the phone have come out as it moves through China's regulatory channels. One of these new details pegs the Galaxy A7's thickness to be a scant 6.3 millimeters, about the same width as that pencil that Apple burned with a laser to prove their point about the iPad Air 2.

According to the leaked information, the A7 is said to have a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p resolution, a 12-megapixel camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. Under the hood, the phone is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 16 GB of storage space and 2 GB of RAM. The whole thing is then said to run on the newly outdated Android 4.4.4 mobile operating system.

These specs aren't exactly breaking any records, but the Galaxy A7 looks to be marketed more to the audience that cares about form as well as function, and the thin design certainly works to accomplish that goal.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is set to be another entry in the phone maker's A series, a line of phones that aims to offer cheaper alternatives to the sometimes pricey Galaxy S series while still providing solid performance.

As of now, there doesn't seem to be any word on when a phone like this will see a release Stateside.
