Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 – Samsung’s first metal unibody designs to launch on select markets soon

Samsung launches Galaxy A3 and A5, two new thinner phones made of metal! Even if the market is full of thin phones already, the trend seems to be more and more exigent in the attempt to make smartphones as slim as possible. Samsung’s thinnest mobiles yet are not only slim, but also designed in metal unibody frames.

Galaxy A3 it the thicker one at 6.9mm, whereas A5 is slimmer with its 6.7mm frame. Both devices are much slimmer than iPhone6 for example (6.9mm) and Galaxy S5 with its 8.1mm frame.

Galaxy A3 has a 4.5” qHD Super AMOLED display with an 8MP rear-camera and a 5 MP front snapper. Inside, you will find a 1.2 GHz quad core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 16GB storage space plus microSD slot. It is powered by a 1900 mAh battery.

Samsung A5 has a larger screen – 5” Super AMOLED display – with a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash. Under the slim hood you will find a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor paired with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal memory plus a microSD slot. It is powered by a 2300mAh battery.

Both devices will launch with Android KitKat 4.4.4.


In order to fight HTC’s Eye experience, Samsung is throwing in some of its own camera features, including:

  • Wide selfie
  • Palm selfie
  • Rear-cam selfie
  • Beauty face features
  • Animated GIF.

Both devices will be available in colors such as: Soft Pink, Platinum Silver, Pearl White, Midnight Black, Light Blue, and Champagne Gold. They will go on sale on select markets starting November.

Samsung Galaxy A5 revealed in SamMobile photo leaks

SamMobile recently got its hands on some photos that resemble the Galaxy A5. It seems that this device is a strange one to be cheering about as the SM-A500 is the first of the A line, a cheap-ish form of Samsung handset. It appears that the new Samsung device builds hype because of its build materials, which appear to be neither plastic nor metal, but still feels cold when held in the hand.

It appears that Samsung has some experience with building faux materials, as the faux leather backs in previous devices allowed the South-Koreans to attempt to create faux metal backs for their devices as well.

Some hardware specs have leaked as well and it seems we are talking about a phone with a 5” AMOLED display powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor aided by 16GB of storage and a 2330 mAh battery. The device is said to have a 13 MP sensor in the back and a 5MP front camera. It seems the device will be sporting the latest TouchWiz custom interface.

The leaked photos resemble those leaked by EVLeaks a while ago and pretty much with any Samsung device built in the last few years. Galaxy A5 would be the first of its line and it will be followed by two other such handsets.
