Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy A5 sequels visit the FCC, some specs revealed
More than one variation of the Galaxy A3 sequel made the trip to the FCC, one with Dual SIM capabilities (SM-A310F/DS). Both second-generation phones will come with NFC, possibly for use with Samsung Pay. However, thanks to Magnetic Secure Transmissions (MST), NFC support is not required to use the mobile payment service as the magnetic stripe on the back of your credit card will suffice.
According to benchmark tests, the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A3 will be equipped with a 4.7-inch screen carrying a resolution of 720 x 1280. The Exynos 7580 SoC is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage are both inside the device. There is a 13MP rear-facing camera, with a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.
Another benchmark test revealed that the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 will come with a 5.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. An octa-core 1.6GHz CPU drives the handset with the Mali-T720 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 13MP/5MP.
We also expect to see a second-generation Samsung Galaxy A7 (SM-A710) which has also shown up on benchmark tests. With the FCC visits out of the way for two of the models, Samsung appears to be moving closer to making these new phones official.
Thanks for the tip!
