Both devices are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor, which is becoming increasingly en vogue.

The Galaxy A3 is downsized to 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage memory, an 8-megapixel main camera, and a 1900mAh battery. Both smartphones have 5MP wide-lens front cams, and run Android 5.0 Lollipop.
