With the new A-series of smartphones Samsung is introducing a redesigned concept (for the brand) on the market. The new lineup is offering a metal unibody experience that aims the young audience and both entry level and experienced Android users. Thus two new KitKat powered smartphones have been designed, the Galaxy A5 and A3. The first is a high end (though not impressive) device while the second is a budget friendly smartphone.
Now, Samsung just released the Galaxy A5 in China, where the phone is already available through Samsung’s own store. If you are interested in buying it, then you should know that Galaxy A5 is priced at 2,599 CNY (which is somewhere around $420). Currently the phone can be bought only for China, but during the following months we might see further announcements related to future market availability.
Specs wipe, Samsung Galaxy A5 is coming with a 5 inch Super AMOLED display (with 1280×720 pixel resolution), along with a quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, micro SD card slot, 13 MP camera on the back, a 5 MP front facing camera and with a2300 mAh battery. Android 4.4 KitKat is featured right of the box while Android 5.0 Lollipop should be released soon as an OTA update.
Thus, if you want to get a metal designed Android powered smartphone that comes with decent performances and with KitKat Android OS, then you might choose Samsung’s Galaxy A5. Remember that the phone has been officially released in China, where is priced at 2,599 CNY ($420).
So, what do you say, are you expecting the Galaxy A5 in other markets too? Or you rather choose a different device instead – let’s say LG G3, new Moto X, or even Google Nexus 6?
