Samsung is again attacking the midrange smartphone market with new Galaxy A series phones— the A3, A5, and A7—that are ultra slim and feature an all-metal unibody.
The Galaxy A5 is 6.7 mm thin, while the Galaxy A3 comes at 6.9mm. Both devices feature a refined full metal unibody design. The two also feature Super AMOLED display and Adaptive Display technology.
Powered by a Quad Core 1.2GHz processor, the phones with 16GB internal memory and a micro SD slot that supports up to 64GB of external memory. The A5 has 2GB RAM while the A3 has 1GB.
The two phones are dual-SIM with only one of the SIMs supporting LTE.
The A5’s rear camera is 13MP AF with LED flash while the A3 has 8MP AF with LED Flash. The front camera of both models is 5MP.
Selfie-addicts will love these phones as the camera features wide selfie, rear-cam selfie, and beauty face features.
Battery power is 1,900 mAh for A3 and 2, 300 mAh for A5.
Both phones will be available this month and have a suggested retail price of Php16,990 (A3) and Php19,990 (A5).
Galaxy A7 packs bigger screen, more processing power
The largest of the three, the A7 is a phablet that features a 5.5-inch high-definition AMOLED display and is only 6.3 mm thick, thinner than the A3 and A5. It packs more computing power as it combines two separate quad-core processors. In addition, it has a larger battery at 2,600 mAh.
Like the other two phones, the A7 runs Android 4.4, has 4G LTE connectivity, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Inside is 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a microSD card slot to add more memory.
The A7 features a hybrid Dual-SIM, which means the second SIM slot can also be used as a microSD card slot.
Available in February, the A7 has an SRP of Php24,990.
