Samsung has announced updated versions of the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 to be out in 2016. With three updated devices being unveiled there is something in store for everybody. More so, those who were giving second thoughts to getting their hands on Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, may want to give these models a second look.
As noted by Digital Trends, these sleek variants will show-off glass backs and an aluminum frame, which will put them at par with the S6, as far as the design is concerned.
First up, sitting at the lower rung in the family is the Galaxy A3 featuring a 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display with resolution of 1,280 x 720 and it comes powered by 1.5 GHz quad core processor and 1.5GB RAM and fueled by a 2,300mAh battery. The internal storage on the device reads out to be 16GB which is expandable up to 128GB through a MicroSD card. Samsung realizes the power of a good camera on any device, and has included a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper on this one.
In the middle of the family sits pretty, the Galaxy A5 and it sports a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display and comes powered by 1.6GHz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. The external storage capacity via MicroSD card is 128GB, just like the A3 model. The cameras remain the same as the A3, the only addition being the optical image stabilization on this one. It is, of course, fueled by a larger 2,900mAh battery with support for fast charging.
Sitting at the top of the Samsung Galaxy A series pack is the Galaxy A7 which boasts a 5.5-inch 1,080p Super AMOLED display and hides a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and 16GB storage capacity, under its hood. Like the other two devices, the memory is expandable to 128GB, via the MicroSD card slot. The added feature on the front-facing camera is an aperture of f/1.9.
The three devices will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is a bit of a downer given the fact that they won`t be hitting the store shelves until mid next year.
As per reports on Tech Radar, the galaxy A lineup will first be arriving in UK and it won’t be happening before April 2016. So, it’s going to take much longer before it is rolled out to other markets.
