Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 2015 editions leak out, flaunting new specs and design

As if to corroborate their upcoming launch, today's grand leak is allegedly of the actual Galaxy A3 (SM-A310) and A5 (SM-A510) 2015 edition themselves. The differences with the design of their predecessors are immediately obvious, such as the speaker grill at the bottom, and the camera/LED flash shape and positioning. Furthermore, the A3 and A5 might feature some other material for the back than the matte metal of their predecessors. What is shown here below looks like a mirror finish that is more akin to a glass back than to a metal design, but in any case, it looks like something new for the A-series.
Galaxy A5. The Exynos 7580 SoC should be under the hood of the A3, containing a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. The A3 might sport 1.5 GB of RAM, along with 16 GB of native storage, a 13MP camera, as well as a 5MP snapper in the front. The Galaxy A5 could come with a 5.2" 1080p screen, Exynos 7 Octa at 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, plus the same set of 13MP/5MP cameras.As for the eventual specs, based on the entries we found in the GFXBench database, we might be looking at a 4.7" HD display on the Galaxy A3, and a 5.2" one on the
We doubt those will be shipping with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, if they get announced soon, so Android 5.1.1 is the more likely driver out of the box. From the looks of it, we might also get a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home key that would likely support Samsung Pay. Do you like what you are seeing with Samsung's eventual A3 and A5 sequels depicted in the slideshow below?

Looks Like The S6, Makes Me Thank The S7 Won't Have A Similar Design But That's Probably Wishful Thinking.

It has already been said by Samsung, the S7 would have a similar design as the S6 only made with Magnesium and not aluminum. Where have you been or what have you been reading? Geez!

Looks good. Carrying forward the style of S6/Note5 with more respectable specs compared to previous A series versions. They may also support Samsung Pay also. In all, may strengthen the middle level porfolio of Sammy.

Another glass back? Metal feels way more premium and isn't a fingerprint collector.

Hello! Samsung A3 is my favourite. Looks similar to Samsung Galaxy Alphas body. Finally a compact smartphone. According to the leaked pics. The dimensions of the phone look like 65.9mm width, 135mm height, and 7.1mm thickness. It's so much easier to hold the phone with one hand unlike iPhone 6, cause of its curved and extremely slippery edges. Gosh Samsung please speed up the release of the Galaxy S6 mini, what is taking so long? Please release in November or December, before the January 2016 potential release of the Galaxy S7.

Interesting how they moved from metal unibody to glass and metal frame. They should play with all glass by edging both front and back and just fuse both front and back panels together. It would be fragile but super cool. These A models should be experimental though.

Kinda wish they get away from glass backs. My Nexus 4 is cracked and my friend at work just crack his Note 5 before getting his case. Only phone I had with glass back that held up was iPhone 4. Still looks premium this day but too outdated.
