Samsung has launched updated versions of their three main mid-to-low-end smartphones – the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 – featuring improved hardware and new features.
The Galaxy A3 is still the cheapest phone in Samsung’s Galaxy A series, featuring a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display (up from 540p in the previous model), as well as a 1.5 GHz quad-core SoC and 1.5 GB of RAM. The handset includes Category 4 LTE and NFC, but no 5 GHz Wi-Fi, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
Moving up the chain is the Galaxy A5; a classic mid-range handset. In a fairly typical hardware offering, it comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a 1.6 GHz octa-core SoC, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2,900 mAh battery. Samsung has also included a fingerprint sensor on this handset, allowing it to support Samsung Pay, along with Category 6 LTE and dual-band Wi-Fi.
