New rumors: November launch for Samsung Galaxy A5, Full HD screen for Samsung Galaxy A7
posted by Alan F. / Oct 07, 2014, 9:17 AM
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!

The Xiaomi Mi3 provides a Snapdragon 800 and an aluminum-magnisium body for $230 in India.

Nice. It's looking like the Galaxy A7 is higher end than Alpha, judging by the display itself.

Im waiting for Samsung Galaxy A7 all metal-clad(metal frame and metal back) series before jumping into HTC ONe M8 or Huawei Ascend Mate 7 or Lenovo Vibe z2 Pro. If the specs of A7 will be disapponting and subpar with any of the flagships mentioned, I'll be forced to go to large-screen phablets.
