After countless leaks about Samsung expanding its “A” series handsets, the Korean OEM has finally made it official. Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 are officially announced, carrying a similar design as the Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
Unfortunately, there’s no Galaxy A7, expected to the high-end model in the series, but it could launch in the coming weeks.
“The Galaxy A5 and A3 offer a beautifully crafted full metal unibody, slim design, superior hardware and the best possible social media experience,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. “These devices make our advanced Galaxy experience even more accessible to young and trend conscious consumers.”
Both devices features a metal design, and are extremely thin. Samsung Galaxy A3 is just 6.9 mm and A5 is only 6.7 mm thin. Both handsets comes with 4G LTE connectivity on board, and are powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor. Samsung Galaxy A5 features a 5-inch HD display sporting a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage with microSD card support of up to 64GB. Other features includes a 13MP primary camera, 5MP front-facing camera, a 2,300 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
As for the Galaxy A3, it features a 4.5-inch qHD display, 8MP primary camera for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of expandable storage, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat as the operating system.
Both devices are expected to hit retail in select markets including China in November 2014, so there’s a chance we may not see it in the west when it launches.
