Dual SIM Galaxy A5 pops up on Samsung China's website, could be launched before the A3

The Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 were announced by Samsung at the end of October, with the mention that both should be released starting November (this month). Since then, Samsung has been quiet about the two handsets - until today, when the Galaxy A5 appeared on the company’s Chinese website. The A3 has yet to make an appearance there, so we assume that the A5 will be launched first - though we don’t know exactly when it’s going to happen.

Galaxy A5 that’s made for China has dual SIM capabilities, in addition to the features that Samsung presented last month. At 6.7 mm, the A5 is Samsung’s thinnest smartphone ever, sharing this honor with the Galaxy Alpha (which is already available around the world).

Just like the A3, the Galaxy A5 has a full metal unibody design (this seemingly causing signal strength issues). The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and features: a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, LTE, 5 MP front-facing camera for “vivid selfies”, 13 MP rear camera, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2300 mAh non-replaceable battery. 

While an official price hasn’t been revealed, rumor has it that the smartphone will cost more than $400.

Both the A5 and A3 are part of Samsung’s brand new Galaxy A series, which may also include the larger A7 (this one hasn’t been announced yet). Not long ago, we heard that Samsung was dealing with production issues - that’s why the new series will be available only in Asia first. We'll probably find out soon if that's true or not.
