First Samsung Galaxy A (2016) TV commercial: "exclusively for you"
Already available to buy in China, Samsung's new Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7 should be launched in other markets starting January. Until then, Samsung wants to make sure that the world knows about its new family of smartphones, that's why today it released its first Galaxy A (2016) TV commercial.

The new commercial - embedded below - is asking quite a lot of questions (including "why do we use our phones for everything but talking?"), without providing proper answers ("it's what we do" isn't really an explanation). Interestingly, the commercial doesn't mention any of the three new handsets in particular, simply presenting the Galaxy A (2016) family as a whole, saying that it's "exclusively for you." But we'll remind you of the three smartphones' main features anyway.

The Galaxy A7 (2016) and Galaxy A5 (2016) are powered by 1.6 GHz octa-core Exynos processors, sport 1080p Super AMOLED displays (5.5 inches and 5.2 inches, respectively), and come with 13 MP and 5 MP cameras (rear and front). The A7 has 3 GB of RAM and a 3300 mAh battery, while the A5 has 2 GB of RAM and a smaller, 2900 mAh battery. As for the Galaxy A3 (2016), this sports a 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, and it's powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. Other features include 1.5 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 2300 mAh battery. All handsets offer 16 GB of expandable storage space, and run Android Lollipop (upgradeable to Android Marshmallow).

Do you plan to buy any of Samsung's new Galaxy A smartphones? If yes, which one?
