Earlier this month, Samsung introduced the second generation Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7 smartphones with updated internals.
The company didn’t announce an exact availability date when the handsets launched, but it seems both the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 are now available for purchase in China.
It’s not too surprising as Samsung’s websites usually go on sale in China a little earlier than other regions for some smartphones. As for the smallest of the lot, the Galaxy A3, it’s not listed on the Samsung China website, but it’s likely that we may get to see it in the coming days.
As for pricing, the Samsung Galaxy A5 is priced at 2398 Yuan ($370) while it’s bigger sibling, the Galaxy A7, carries a 2,699 Yuan ($420) price tag. All four color options introduced with the handsets are available for purchase the company’s China website.
