A Twitter account (@AndroidMX) has posted up images and a brief video that allegedly show a fully working Samsung’s Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 are two devices that are expected to have a big splash in the mobile technology space. Specifically, they’re expected to have a profound impact on sales as a whole for the company as they aim to sell a mid-range device that is more affordable than the company’s flagship device the Galaxy Alpha.
Both devices will apparently come with aluminum bodies, and the Galaxy A5 will boast a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen, which has a 13MP back camera and 5MP front camera. Add in 16GB of storage on the inside, as well as a Snapdragon 400 processor with a battery that clips at 2330mAh, and that is the device Samsung will be working with.
It’s expected that the price will hover in the $400-450 price point range, and obviously will cost less under contract.
Now, with the inception of the Galaxy A-line it will clearly be a step in the right direction for Samsung acquiring more market share.
And for Samsung, this has been the goal all along. The company wants everyone using their devices, and Apple owns the overall smartphone market. Especially in the United States. A phone like this though, especially if it’s priced appropriately under contract could have a growing impact on how well future iDevices sell, but that’s only if the company plays their cards correctly.
Apple will likely not be releasing an “actual” new device next year, and it will be an update to a current device. If Samsung can then make appropriate changes that are necessary to the A-series devices that are slated to come out – since holding off seems unlikely now – the company could be looking at, perhaps not an Apple killer, but definitely a device that will hamper Apples ability to continue dominating the market without any battle scars.
It appears as though all of the phones in the A-Series will also be LTE-ready. It will serve as a big plus for contributing toward the end-goal, which is as we stated, increasing Samsung’s overall market share. The photos and a video of the devices were leaked on Twitter (@AndroidMX), and actually show a pretty smooth looking devices.
