Adding to a long line of previous leaks and rumours, the anticipated Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 from the rumoured upcoming Galaxy A Series have once again appeared online - this time in 2 purported images. The Galaxy A5 is additionally seen benchmarked on GFX Bench.
The purported images of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A300) and Galaxy A5 (SM-A500) (via AndroidMX) showcase smartphones with metal chamfered edges and not full metal bezels like the Galaxy Alpha. Phonearena speculates the Galaxy A3 will feature a 4.7-inch display, compared alongside the Galaxy A5 and a Black colour variant of the Galaxy Alpha in the first of the 2 images.
The proposed Galaxy A3 handset is also tipped to come with an LTE variant and have its official introduction by the end of this year. The second purported image shows the right panel of the Galaxy A5, with the power button and SIM card slot visible.
According to a recent Tenaa certification website listing of the SM-A3000, thought to be the Galaxy A3, the handset features Android 4.4.4 KitKat; a 4.5-inch OLED qHD (540x960 pixels) display; 1GB of RAM; 8GB inbuilt storage; expandable storage support up to 64GB (via microSD card); an 8-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; weight of 112 grams, and dimensions of 130.1x65.5x6.9mm.
