Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2016): all the official images
If you want the Galaxy S6 design concept in a smaller, larger, and much larger form factors, look no further than the newly announced Samsung A (2016) series. The fresh-off-the-press Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2016) are housed in thin metal-and-glass chassis, with a tad sharper corners than what we have on the S6, and a tad thicker bodies that house much larger batteries than their predecessors.

The new A-series trio now has much narrower bezels than the originals that appeared about a year ago, which is a welcome change when it comes to one-handed operation. At the same time, the A5 and A7 have been equipped with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home key, which makes them able to authorize Samsung Pay transactions. 

The other design differences with the previous pack are the speaker grills at the bottom, and the position of the LED flash on the rear of the phones. With a Pearl, Platinum and Sapphire chassis colors, the trio looks pretty good, judging from the official images below, what do you think?

"The new A-series trio has much narrower bezels than the original that appeared about a year ago, which is a welcome change when it comes to one-handed operations" Not really true, because too narrow bezels leads to accidental taps and touch inputs, hence uncomfortable for one-handed operations, since you'll be trying to avoid those accidental taps, which is stressfull to give the phone a better grip, hence more likely to drop the phone!

Nope it doesn't cause much problems... If it ever did then an easy software patch to avoid accidental touches can be implemented :)

That's exactly what I was thinking.
