Samsung has just announced an updated version of the Galaxy A3 and A5 smartphones. It comes with similar specifications to the very successful Galaxy S7, which was rated the best smartphone of 2016. This appears to be an indication that Samsung wants its consumers to enjoy all that they have to offer in much cheaper price
The new Galaxy A smartphones include an all metal frame and 3D glass back which is a key design feature in Samsung’s premium devices. Both devices comes with different sizes with the A5 featuring a 5.2 inch display while A3 comes with a smaller 4.7 inch display screen.
Users of both devices can also check for key notification without necessarily waking up the device because of its “always on” technology. This will help reduce battery usage.
Like the premium S7, the new A series are rated IP68 which means they can cope with a dip in water and are dust resistant.
There is also an enhanced rear camera and taking selfies has been made much easier as users can touch anywhere on the screen to snap a high resolution picture of the face.It also uses the display as a front flash which should help improve low lights shots.Users can also use specific modes such as Food mode to optimise and enhance the colour and contrast of selected shots.
Samsung is boasting a long-lasting battery life and fast charging capability via its USB Type-C port.
Though not all the features meet up to the Galaxy S7 because the new A series features lower processors and only a maximum of 32GB storage capacity.
DJ Koh,President of Mobile Communications Business,Samsung Electronics said during the introduction “At Samsung,we are always trying to ensure our customers have the most advanced products on the market”.
The devices will be available from early february.
