Samsung Galaxy A3 visits the FCC

Samsung Galaxy A3 visits the FCC
We've seen plenty of news lately regarding Samsung's new Galaxy A series. We now have some more information to pass along about the entry-level version of the series, the Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A300). It seems that the model has paid a visit to the FCC. This comes after the device was cleared by China's TENAA at the end of last month.

According to the TENAA certification, the Galaxy A3 will feature a 4.52 inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 540 x 960. A 64-bit quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU is under the hood with 1GB of RAM inside. 8GB of native storage is on board with a 64GB capacity microSD slot. While a rear-facing 8MP camera is on the phone, a 5MP "selfie" camera adorns the front of the handset. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed, and the device supports Dual SIM cards and has 4G LTE connectivity.

With TENAA and FCC visits already checked off Sammy's "to-do list," we should be getting closer to finding out pricing and availability for the Samsung Galaxy A3 in the not too distant future.


Thanks for the tip!

I've done some snapping with the Samsung GS4 mini & it wasn't so good.

This should be priced at $300 to $350 range.Considering the LTE,it maybe $350.

I think $350 seems a too high. LTE doesn't cost that much to add, and there is already the Galaxy Avant priced at only $230. That Avant has a Snap400, 1.5 GB of ram, 16GB of storage, 2100 mah battery, NFC, and LTE. This A3 has a newer processor, probably a little faster than the snap400 but not by much. It also has better cameras (Avant has 5mp back and 0.3mp front). So I expect $300 at max. Not sure what Samsung thinks about this, but yeah, I think it can be about $300 or less.

$230 + 13mp camera increase overall + metal body +lte - 0.5 gb ram The minimum price will become $300.
