Samsung has finally put an end to the months of leaks about its metal clad A series of smartphones by finally unveiling the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5. Interestingly, there’s no mention of the Galaxy A7 yet, so it’s likely that Samsung is reserving that for the holiday season. Both the A5 and the A3 are midrange offerings with the A5 being the more powerful of the two.
The Galaxy A5 comes with a 5 inch 720p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel portrait camera, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz quad core SoC, a 2,300 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Galaxy A3 packs a 4.5 inch qHD display (960 x 540), a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 1,900 mAh battery. Both smartphones carry a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Samsung hasn’t spilled the beans on exact availability or the pricing, but has clarified that it will arrive in China first. Other Asian markets should be on the list as well while we’re a little uncertain about its arrival in North America. Both handsets will serve the midrange market which has been one of the strong holds of Samsung over the years.
