Rumor: Samsung’s well-received Galaxy Ax series set to continue for another generation at least
Samsung is, unsurprisingly, working on the follow up to its Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 handsets. SamMobile has learned from its sources that the devices will have model names SM-A310F, SM-A510F and SM-A710F in Russia, while Chinese models will be SM-A5100 and SM-A7100.
Little else is known about the devices. The site hasn’t heard anything specific about specifications or pricing, but the slight change in model numbers suggests the improvements will be incremental.
Samsung introduced metal bodies on its phones for the first time with the Galaxy A-series phones, before the solid chassis design hit the Galaxy Note, then the Galaxy S lineups later on. The series itself has been relatively well-received by consumers, offering great build and almost-flagship specs for competitive prices. Although not quite as cheap as disruptive brands like OnePlus and Alacetel OneTouch, the phones did help dissuade fears that the company only knew how to make cheap-feeling, and cheap-looking plastic ‘mini’ phones.

Topping out the mid-range A-series, the A7 has a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 13MP main camera and – in line with Samsung’s focus on social media – a 5MP front-facing camera for hi-res selfies (including voice-activated ones). It’s available in single- and dual-SIM models, the former getting a quad-core Exynos processor, while the latter gets an octa-core version …

A new clip has emerged on the internet showing off one of Samsung’s upcoming handsets, namely the Galaxy A3. This device is one of a pair—the other being the A5—that were announced by the Korean company earlier this year, filling a gap in the company’s lineup with some mid- to low-range thin and metal-clad handsets.

Samsung has just unveiled two new Galaxy devices. The rumored “A Series” is finally here. Samsung’s Galaxy A3 and A5 are some of Samsung’s slimmest smartphones to date with a variety of social networking features and full metal unibody designs. The Galaxy A3 is a mere 6.9mm thin, while the A5 sits at just 6.7mm. Unfortunately, there’s nothing crazy happening in the specifications department…
