There are almost half a dozen new upcoming Samsung phones for 2014, and if you are looking for a smartphone with a slightly mid-level size but powerful specs, then the Galaxy A series may be a good option for you.
Announced last month, the Galaxy A5 and A3 are powered by 64-bit chips, and boast metal bodies like the Galaxy Alpha, Note 4 and Note Edge. While the specs for the higher range A5 are already quite impressive, a new report will certainly make it a more favorable option for Android and Samsung fans. According to a report by Phone Arena , the new Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone has recently appeared on Samsung’s Chinese website.
In the web page, the Android handset boasts dual-SIM compatibility, something that was not specified during the official launch. Whether this is a market-based feature on the smartphone’s part or not, that we don’t know.
Still, it is a major addition to a Chinese market which loves dual-SIM smartphones.
Now, the only challenge before the Galaxy A5 actually becomes a best-seller is its price tag. In case you missed the launch, the Samsung midranger boasts a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with HD (1280 x 720) resolution, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 410 chipset, and 16GB of internal memory.
Other specs include a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP front shooter and 2,300mAh of battery.
The phone runs on Android 4.4.4 Kit Kat, with a future update to Lollipop coming shortly.
