Three new entry-level to mid-range smartphones have reached our shores: the Samsung Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7.
To give you a recap, the Samsung Galaxy A3 is a 4.5-inch handset with qHD (540×960) Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel main camera and 1GB of RAM. The Galaxy A5 offers a larger 5-inch display with HD (720×1280) resolution, 13-megapixel shooter and 2GB of RAM. Both are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and run Android 4.4 KitKat.
The A3 and A5 have thin profiles in their own right, but the Samsung Galaxy A7 (pictured above) is even thinner—it’s actually the company’s slimmest phone so far at 6.3mm. It’s also the most powerful of the trio, featuring a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD (1080×1920) resolution and Samsung’s homegrown Exynos 5433 chip with eight CPU cores. Resolution for the main is slightly lower at 12-megapixels (a negligible difference). Connectivity options include optional 4G LTE and NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0.
All three feature a metallic unibody design that’s similar to the Galaxy Alpha. When they arrive in stores, the respective prices of the Samsung Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 are Php16,990, Php19,990 and Php24,990.
