Samsung was rumoured to have three spin off devices from it’s first metal phone, the Galaxy Alpha, but we’ve only so far seen one launch – the Galaxy A3. However, after the initial announcement of the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5, there has been little in the way of news of a launch of the device or sale in any form. That is about to change.
Recently, Samsung’s mid-ranged metal Galaxy A5 has surfaced in China via Samsung’s own website. The Galaxy A5 has since been launched in China; going on sale for CNY¥ 2599 (MYR 1455/USD$ 423). That’s a hefty price for what Samsung is marketing as their mid range metal device. A recap of the specifications of the device may defend or break Samsung’s pricing.
The Galaxy A5 is coming with a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen. It will be running on a 1.2 GHz quad core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with microSD expansion support. It has a 13MP rear facing camera and an amazing 5MP front facing camera, equipped with the Wide Selfie, Rear-cam Selfie and Beauty Face Features as seen in the Note 4.
The Galaxy A5 also looks to be making its way to Malaysia together with it’s smaller sibling the A3. The device has recently made its way through certification with SIRIM, Malaysia’s equivalent of the Federal Communications Commission in the U.S.. It may be poised to launch in time for the new year in Malaysia.
