Photos of the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 and second-generation Samsung Galaxy A7 appear
We've seen numerous leaks revealing that Samsung will be releasing second-generation models for the Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy A5 and Samsung Galaxy A7. Today, images of the second generation Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 were leaked. Combined with information previously revealed from benchmark tests and other rumors, we can provide you with a good idea of what to expect from the latter two models.

The second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 will come with a 5.2-inch screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Powering the handset is an Exynos 7 SoC, featuring an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable internal memory. A 13MP camera can be found in back, with a 5MP snapper in front. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. Listed as model number SM-A510, the second-gen Samsung Galaxy A5 and its metal-clad body has already received its Bluetooth certification.

The second-generation Samsung Galaxy A7 is equipped with a 5.5-inch SuperAMOLED display, sporting a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 615 SoC is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. The camera combo, from back to front, weighs in at 13MP/5MP. The SM-A710 is expected to come with Android 5.1.1 out of the box. Like the second-gen Galaxy A5, we should see the sequel to the Galaxy A7 also feature a metal-clad build.

You can study images of both phones by clicking on the slideshow below. We should point out that the two models have not yet been made official by Samsung.


Thanks for the tip!

Loving the slim bezels on these mid-rangers.
The A series was a hit here in Lebanon, and I could only see their successors to sell even more with the refined design, hardware, and slimmed down touchwiz.
Let's hope the price stays the same.

I am guessing that it has nothing to do with Samsung and more to do with the customs fee of your country.
Here in Lebanon the A8 is sold for $370, while the A3 is sold for $205.
The A5 is selling like crazy, those who want a nice phone, and don't care that much about specs, are going with the A5.

A8 is absolutely gorgeous! Build quality of Galaxy A series is top-notch.

Sadly a only a few people here appreciate that, all they look at is specs to price ratio. smh

I like the phone myself, I really do. But one carriers I have here (virgin Mobile) sells the phone unlocked for 400, where I can get a Moto G for somewhat cheaper (250)

Agree.. Comparing the design, camera and display, it outdoes many flagship from other brands

Not excited about the A series phones because they are priced way too high to pass as mid range phones in my country. Beautiful devices no doubt but with those prices I'd buy a flagship device of other manufacturers. Samsung still needs to work on touchwiz in the area of ram management to convince me to buy another smart phone too. I can't understand why my Lenovo P70 (lollipop 5.1) can hold more apps in memory than my galaxy note 4! Also why are these coming out in android 5.1 when marshmallow is already out?

Are you all there mate, it's a small edit at root, they do it to make the phone faster and take less battery, this is because why you like to manage your apps, the basic customer as no idea what they are doing so auto closing apps is a good, thing,

I do think they need to have a setting may be in the Dev menu to change it, but like I said it's all done for the basic customer

Thanks for the explanation j2001m. The problem I'm having with Samsung is exactly that! I think Samsung is becoming like Apple and decisions like that "for the basic customer" as you say shouldn't be. The Lenovo P70 I use as my second phone (a 2014 mid range smartphone) would satisfy an average customer in many areas that my galaxy note 4 is found lacking and the only area the Samsung phone trounces it is in some hardware features like screen quality, removable battery, S pen, fast charging etc and a few other features that Samsung's 2015 flagship phones are now lacking.

With flagships getting more expensive, these midrangers will Samsung's main money makers

Wish the screen wasn't 5.2.

4.8 or 4.9 would be perfect.

This is why the Galaxy Alpha needs a sequel.

I honestly think it will...tbh tho I saw the Alpha like the starting device to bring the design cues of the s6, hence its name.

I hope someday we get an Alpha 2, but I doubt it since the original Alpha was released in August/September last year.

Agreed, Alpha is my favourite Samsung of all time, if it had SD slot it would be mine, but I cannot live with 32GB of storage...except for that it's so damn good phone in every aspect

The Galaxy A5 specs are awesome (improved a lot upon the first one) but the A7 ones are kind of disappointing. The only thing I see is better on the second-gen A7 is that there are 3 GB of RAM. Samsung should have used the Snapdragon 620 or the 618 and also a version with the Exynos 7420 (now that the Galaxy S7 with the Exynos 8890 is coming). They could have upgraded the camera, too.
Also, PhoneArena says they are metal phones, but don't they look like glass? At least the A7 looks like it, and I doubt Samsung would use a different build for phones from the same series.

s615 very lag on a7. but a8 smooth on 5430. i don't like s615 because weak gpu.

The A7 has an Exynos 5430 version, and the A8
has a Snapdragon 615 version. I don't like the 615, either.

They have the same design as the s6 glass and metal but unlike the s6 the metal sides have no curls in them

No longer a phone with 16GB of native storage in my pocket. I will never get it again.

Did it say Snapdragon 615 was a quadcore?

The article says the Snapdragon 615 is quad-core, but it is octa-core. There is a Snapdragon 610, which is the same as the Snapdragon 615, but quad-core
