Second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 is certified by TENAA

Second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 is certified by TENAA
We've seen the FCC in the U.S. certify the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A3, the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 and the second-gen Samsung Galaxy A7. In China, the country's equivalent to the FCC, TENAA, has cleared the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A7. Today, TENAA has added the Galaxy A5 sequel to its list of certified phones.

The second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 features a 5.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. An octa-core  1.7GHz CPU drives the device. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage.  A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring more memory.

The rear-facing camera will be either 8MP or 13MP, with a 5MP front-facing camera to snap selfies and handle video chats. The phone measures a thin 6.9mm and weighs 145 grams. According to TENAA, the phone is available in a "Golden" color and comes with Android 5.1.1 pre-installed. The model number, for those who care about such things, is SM-A5100.

We could see Samsung introducing some, or all, of the second-generation Galaxy A series soon.


Thanks for the tip!

- Better in benchmarks (I think that S5 has better GPU although) - Bigger Screen - Better Front Facing Camera - Premium build quality - Same amount of Internal Storage, RAM and microSD -slot which is also expandable to 128 GB. - A5 will have same Fingerprint scanner than S6.

-benchmarks have nothing to do with real life usage - bigger screen but no AMOLED display -high-megapixel phone sensor creates images mired by discoloration and noise. They may be large images, in terms of the JPEG you view on your screen, but they're not precise, beautiful images. -Premium my a**

- Oh yeah, so A3 (1st gen) is the fastest phone in the world. No, it isn't the truth but it's close to it. - Actually it has AMOLED, Super AMOLED to be precise. - Use your 0,3 MP Front Facing Camera and compare it to 5 MP one. - Premium build looks and feels cooler.
