Due to continuing criticism from experts and consumers, it appears that Samsung is finally working on smartphones with premium external materials (read metal). It appears that Samsung has realised that you can’t cram in components in to a plastic case and sell it as a smartphone. The company now seems to pay attention to how it feels in the hands.
Over the past one week, a lot of details about Samsung’s upcoming smartphones with premium materials have been leaked. AndroidMX was able to share the images of Samsung’s upcoming devices, the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3. It appears that the Galaxy A5 will feature an aluminium unibody, metal chamfered edges, non-removable back cover. AndroidMX had also uploaded a 2 minute video clip on YouTube that displayed both the devices, however, the video has since then turned private.
What do we know so far about the Galaxy A3, the Galaxy A7, and the Galaxy A3?
As per the leaks, the Galaxy A5 will feature an aluminium unibody, a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 16GB of internal space, and a 2,300mAh battery. The Galaxy A5 will be a mid-range smartphone to be priced between $400 to $450. On the other hand, the Galaxy A3 will be a dual-SIM LTE smartphone which will be priced between $350 to $400.
