Official-looking renders of the Samsung Galaxy A5 pop up

Official-looking renders of the Samsung Galaxy A5 pop up
New renders of the Galaxy A5 have been sent our way by one of our readers, and from where we're standing, they're looking legit. Hot on the heels of yesterday's photos of the A5 caught in the wild, we're now looking at sterile renders that show the device in its full (albeit not high-res) glory.

In case you missed the story on the new Galaxy A line and the Galaxy A5 in specific, here's a quick recap. At this point it's looking like Samsung is on path to create a new family of mid- to high-end Galaxy devices, all under the A (Alpha?) moniker. We're told to expect devices that emulate the Galaxy Alpha, so think premium materials with the body (e.g. metal). 

Turning to the Galaxy A5, the device measures in at 5.48 x 2.74 x 0.26 inches (139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7 mm) and features a frame made out of aluminum. The display is a 5-inch, 720p one, of the Super AMOLED type. This mid-ranger will apparently be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB of RAM, and make use of a 13-megapixel rear shooter. The rest of the list includes 16GB of microSD-expandable storage, a 2300 mAh cell, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat. We're told it will cost $400.

At this rate, we expect to see the Galaxy A5 make its official debut soon. From what we know, it'll be a world-wide one.

Thanks for the snaps, Arjun!

this device is very elegant but the design is dangerously close to Note 4... In my view, for midrangers they should follow different design cues than their flagships

I don't think so. Note 4 has that leather foam finish on its back. Also, it has that metal frame this doesn't seem to have a frame at all. Also, the speaker placement is different.

$400 is a reasonable price

XiaoMi 4 has 3gb ram, snap801, 3000mah battery, 8mp camera for less than $300 I hope you're joking to say $400 is reasonable

this is xiaowawami not Samsung. Period. The day Android is drowned by cheap-named copycat devices I'll switch back to ios. It breaks my heart to see what's happening to Sony and HTC and I'm glad Samsung is still flying high, but the day premium android makers drown to cheapo copy brands that copy ios and Samsung, it'll be the last time I'll use android, if this happens of course.

Samsung over saturation ? Consumer: "I have a Samsung phone, and I'd like to buy a case" Sales rep: "Which phone do you have ?" Consumer: "A Samsung Galaxy". Sales Rep: "Which one ?" Consumer: "The new one." Sales Rep:"Which one ?" Consumer: "The one that just came out." Sales Rep: "Which one ?" Consumer: "It's brand new" Sales Rep: "Samsung releases 20 Galaxy phones a year, be specific."

I don't know about the US but in Canada it's basically just the Note and the S and maybe the ACE2x but rogers and koodo mainly sell those. Occasionally a mini or an Alpha would sneak over but that's about it. Websites just like reporting every model when we won't see 90 percent of them.

Note 3, S5 Activ, S5, S4, SIII, SIII Mini, Note 2, Galaxy Mega....You can still buy those phones on contract in the US. They are becoming the Sega of smart phone companies (Genesis, 32X, Sega CD, Saturn, Game Gear, Pico) were all out at the SAME time.
