Samsung Galaxy A7 USB Drivers – Download Now

Samsung Galaxy A7 is the most high end phone from the Galaxy A Series announced recently. Partnering up with it’s smaller counterparts, Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5, the A7 provides a larger screen real estate, better specs and a greater footprint. Out of the box, it will come pre-installed with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Lollipop update is expected to be announced soon but till now no certain time limit is present for the roll out. In this post, we will show you how you can install latest USB drivers on your PC. Be it Galaxy A7 or any other Android phone, proprietary drivers need to be installed before connecting your phone. If no drivers are installed, limited connection capabilities will deprive you from properly moving files to and fro the phone.  We strongly recommend you download the latest USB drivers linked in this guide and install them before connecting your Galaxy A7.

The download link present in our tutorial will guide you to a package which is universal to all Samsung phones including the new Galaxy A7.  Due to security issues, a phone cannot be simply connected to a PC and act as a USB. If you have a lock code, you would first have to bypass that on your phone, then connect it. The USB drivers on the PC end allow you to transfer files properly without any hassle. If you are looking for fastboot drivers, we have a link for that as well. You won’t have to install the full SDK just to get to the fastboot. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.
