Samsung presents Galaxy A5 and A3 smartphones

The Korean smartphone maker Samsung has presented its latest smartphones – the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3. The smartphones target people who actively use social networks and come in several colors, likely limited by region – Pearl White, Midnight Black, Platinum Silver, Soft Pink, Light Blue and Champagne Gold.

The Galaxy A5 is not your ordinary smartphone, though. The device comes housed in a metallic chassis that is not only sturdy but also very thin. The chassis measures 139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7 mm which makes it as thin as the already launched Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone. The new Samsung product comes with an unnamed quad-core chip at 1.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot allows you to expand the internal memory capacity with cards up to 64 GB in size. The main feature of the smartphone is a 5-inch Super AMOLED display at 1280 x 720 pixels; apart from this it also has a rear 13 MP camera and a front 5 MP camera. The device supports 802.11n Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC (LTE version only). A 2300 mAh battery provides power to the device that weighs 123 grams and runs Android 4.4 KitKat.

The Galaxy A3 also comes in a metal body but is a cut-down version of the A5 – the A3 has an unnamed 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 4.5-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), 8 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras, LTE Cat. 4, NFC, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 1900 mAh battery.

The new Samsung smartphones should be on the market in November. No word on pricing as of now.
