After certifying the Galaxy A5 smartphone, China’s TENNA regulatory body has now approved the Samsung Galaxy A3 for use in the country. And as you’re probably aware, this also means that official information and images of the handset have been posted online.
The Samsung Galaxy A3 carries the model number SM-A300 (SM-A3000 in China) and it’s said to come with a premium design. Well, the phone looks nothing fancy in the images provided, but that could change in the final release. By the looks of it, the company has implemented a unibody construction and the overall body could be made from a premium-looking material that’s not metal, or so we’ve heard.
The handset will be quite a slim one at 6.9mm (the Galaxy A5 is 6.7mm thin) and it won’t weigh much either at 112 grams. It will be an entry-level one carrying a 4.52-inch qHD display and a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 64-bit processor.
Here’s a quick look at the Samsung Galaxy A3’s specifications:
– Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– 4.52-inch qHD 960 x 540 pixel Super AMOLED display
– 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 SOC (64-bit)
– 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable)
– 8MP rear camera, 5MP front snapper
– 130.1mm x 65.5mm x 6.9mm
– 112 grams weight
Around a couple of weeks back, the regulatory website also revealed information and images of the Galaxy A5 smartphone, with live pictures of the handset showing up a few days later. The third member of the series will be the A7 which will reportedly have a limited release and carry beefier specs compared to the other two devices.
The Samsung Galaxy A3 and the other members of the series were supposed to go official by the end of this month, but clearly that isn’t going to happen. There’s a high chance of seeing them get unveiled in the next couple of weeks.
