With less than a week left for the rumored time-frame for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A series to take place, fresh information about the handsets in question is surfacing each day. Today’s leak discloses a few technical details about the devices and also provides estimated prices.
First and foremost, the entire Samsung Galaxy A series which comprises of the A3 (SM-A300), A5 (SM-500) and A7 (SM-700), will be LTE enabled and all phones are expected to come with 64-bit Snapdragon processors, albeit there’s a chance of the handsets carrying different chipsets depending on the markets they’re headed to.
SamMobile has learnt that the A3 and A5 handsets will be widely available, while the A7 is likely to reach select locations. The third device is said to be the most powerful in the series and it could be that Samsung doesn’t want it to compete with the Galaxy Alpha.
Where costs are concerned, the Galaxy A3 is expected to retail somewhere between $350 and $400, while the A5 should sell at around $400 to $450. Coming to the A7, this phone will be priced between $450 and $500 which is much higher than the Rs 18483 ($301) cost we seen when the phone was making its way to India for testing.
Samsung Galaxy A5 specs:
– 5-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display
– 16GB internal storage, microSD expandability
– Quad core Snapdragon 400/410 processor
– 2330mAh batter
– 8MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter
The Samsung Galaxy A series was initially said to have a full metal design, but it looks like the OEM is preparing a different type of material which can achieve a premium look whilst keeping the cost down.
