Samsung starts selling the Galaxy A5 (only in China for now), asks $420 for it
Announced at the end of October as one of Samsung’s slimmest smartphones (only the Galaxy Alpha matches its thinness), the Galaxy A5 offers an all-metal unibody case that measures 139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7 mm and weighs 123 grams. It’s a mid-range Android KitKat handset with features which include: LTE connectivity, a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space (expandable via microSD), and a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The Chinese version of the A5 also has dual SIM capabilities.
The Galaxy A5 should be released soon in other markets, alongside the smaller Galaxy A3 (which hasn’t showed up anywhere yet). Samsung seems to be having production yield issues related to the two handsets, so they may not be available in too many regions.
What do you think, is the Galaxy A5 worth $420? Would you buy one if you had the chance?
