Samsung today has unveiled a couple of Galaxy A-series devices - Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5. Both devices are more on premium body design and selfie shoot.
The Galaxy A3 packs slightly lower-end specs compared to the A5. It has a 4.5" qHD Super AMOLED display and is powered by 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB expandable storage.
The camera at the back is an 8 MP shooter while there's a 5 MP front camera that comes with wide selfie feature same as the Galaxy Note 4. Juicing up the device is a 1,900 mAh battery and it comes with Ultra Power Saving mode too.
The device is running on Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung home-bake TouchWiz UX. It comes with six different colors - black, white, silver, gold, blue and pink.
As for the Galaxy A5, it is actually same as the A3 but with a slightly larger 5" HD Super AMOLED display. The processor is same but the RAM has been up to 2 GB.
The rear camera is a 13 MP shooter, while the front remains same at 5 MP. As the screen size is bigger, Samsung has implanted a 2,300 mAh battery on it, same comes with Ultra Power Saving mode.
Color option same goes to the Galaxy A5 - black, white, silver, gold, blue and pink. It is also on Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UX.
The Galaxy A3 and A5 are Samsung’s slimmest smartphones to date, featuring refined full metal unibody designs that are 6.9 mm and 6.7 mm thin, respectively. It's good to see that Samsung finally goes premium instead of stays with plastic body.
