Samsung Galaxy A5 price, specs and dimensions outed by a retailer: it won't be cheap
The next entrants in Samsung's new design line that started with the Galaxy Alpha are already shaping up in terms of names and specs, but now we are having one other important ingredient leaking out - the pricing scheme. A Kazakhi retailer has jumped the gun on listing the Galaxy A5 prematurely in its catalog, complete with the full specs sheet, including the dimensions, as well as the price.
In Kazakhstan, the Galaxy A5 will retail for 99, 990 tenge (that's the local currency), which translates to roughly EUR 435, or $552. Once again this confirms that Samsung is planning to set apart the new design line putting it at a respectable price range, just like it does with the Galaxy Alpha. According to the listing, the Galaxy A5 is equipped with a 5" Super AMOLED HD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 13 MP camera on the back, and, thankfully, a microSD slot for storage expansion. Previous rumors add to these specs a 2330 mAh battery, Snapdragon 400 processor, and 16 GB of internal memory.
We are also getting the exact dimensions of the device - 5.48" x 2.74" x 0.28" (139.3 x 69.7 x 7 mm), and the weight - at the feathery 4.33oz (123g). Sounds like a svelte handset, especially if it carries the metal sides of the Alpha, too, but will there be any takers if this pricing holds water? What do you think? The catalog is good until November 11th, so we should hopefully hear an announcement some time before that date.
