New rumors: November launch for Samsung Galaxy A5, Full HD screen for Samsung Galaxy A7
It seems like Samsung has taken all of that criticism about releasing plastic smartphones to heart. Ever since it released the metal clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha, it feels like the manufacturer is trying to make up for lost time. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 includes metal sidings, and now metal is expected to be used in the construction of the rumored Samsung Galaxy A series.

The latest speculation involving this line has the middle child, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (SM-A500), being released in November. Considering that it is October already (kinda snuck up on you, didn't it?), we are talking just a matter of weeks before the model should be released. While we've discussed pricing before, it doesn't hurt to remind you that the mid-ranger will probably go on sale for $400-$500 USD. The device has a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 720 x 1280. A 64-bit Snapdragon 410 CPU is under the hood with 16GB of native storage inside. Rear and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP, respectively, and a 2330mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed, and dual SIM slots are available.

We also have some other unfinished business related to this line. While the Samsung Galaxy A3 and Samsung Galaxy A5 both are equipped with screens offering 720 x 1280 resolution, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is rumored to include a 5.5 inch glass with 1080 x 1920 resolution. Hopefully, Samsung will soon make these three models official. With a November launch date a possibility for at least one of the phones, a formal unveiling of the trio shouldn't be too far away.

Thanks for the tip, William!
